This year’s show took place at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio. Dubbed DJ Khaled & Friends, the eight-minute show was introduced by NBA champion Dwyane Wade. “We all know how cold it is right now outside. So, I figured we could use some Miami heat up in here to warm things up”, Wade announced. “To hit the stage tonight is my brother. Get on your feet and please welcome DJ Khaled and the All-Star squad!”
Khaled recruited Lil Wayne, Migos, Mary J. Blige, Gunna, Lil Baby, and Ludacris for the live performance. Lil Baby hit the stage first rapping "Every Chance I Get,” followed by Gunna performing "Pushin P" and Migos performing "We Going Crazy.”
Mary J. Blige was up next, singing her new single “Amazing," and Lil Wayne performed “We Takin Over” for the first time in a decade. Ludacris closed out the show rhyming a verse on Khaled’s "All I Do Is Win." The performance was Khaled’s third All-Star show, and his first-ever as a headliner.
On Sunday, the NBA honored the league's 75th Anniversary Team with a special halftime ceremony featuring Usher, Spike Lee, Tiffany Haddish, and Anthony Anderson. Earth, Wind & Fire performed their classic hit "Shining Star" and Macy Gray sang “The Star Spangled Banner”.
