NBA All-Star Game 2013: Ke$ha to perform before main event, Russell Westbrook approves

USA TODAY Sports

Russell Westbrook might have to skip out on his pre-game preparations for the All-Star game now that we know who the NBA has performing beforehand.

The NBA announced Tuesday that Ke$ha will be the main artist featured in a pregame concert broadcast live before the NBA All-Star Game, alongside Ludacris and B.o.B.

You might not think that the flirty pop star is the greatest fit for the NBA's premier in-season event, but at least one of the players in Sunday night's big game is PUMPED:

Ke$ha's performance will be at 7 p.m. before the game tips at 8 p.m. as part of TNT's pregame coverage. Atlanta rappers Ludacris and B.o.B. will be on stage starting at 6 p.m. in a performance that will be shown live on NBATV.
