Pharrell Performs with Nelly, Diddy, Busta Rhymes, & Snoop Dogg at NBA All-Star Game

Snoop Dogg, Diddy, Pharrell, Nelly, and Busta Rhymes

Before the NBA’s greatest players hit the court, Pharrell tipped off Sunday’s All-Star Game with a 20-minute medley of his greatest hits featuring some special guests. The Grammy-winning producer provided the soundtrack to the player introductions beginning with his 2003 single “Frontin’.”

Nelly emerged to perform his Neptunes-produced hit “Hot in Herre” before Skateboard P continued with “I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me).”

Diddy and Busta Rhymes helped turn up New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center with “Pass the Courvoisier, Part II.” But instead of the usual lyrics, they switched things up for 2014, chanting “Pass the Ciroc this way.”

Pharrell (sans Robin Thicke) made his way through the crowd for “Blurred Lines,” and his fellow N.E.R.D. bandmate Chad Hugo joined him on keyboard for “Rock Star.”

“Let’s take it back to the essence, Chad,” said P.

Snoop Dogg hit the stage with “Beautiful,” and the Western Conference players entered to “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”

For the closing number, Pharrell donned his famous hat in red while performing “Get Lucky” and his top 10 hit “Happy” as Diddy, Busta, Nelly, and Snoop danced onstage.

“No words for how grateful I am these legends joined me 2nite,” tweeted Pharrell.
