Kanye West was conspicuously absent from the 2011 Grammy Awards ceremony this weekend, most likely because his stunning new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, won’t be Grammy eligible until next year. Well, the Grammy’s loss is the NBA All-Star Game’s gain, as word has just broken that Yeezy and Rihanna will be performing that album’s masterful centerpiece, “All Of The Lights,” during halftime on Sunday. Rumors of this exciting development broke first on the dirt digging sports blog Deadspin this morning, but our friends over at MTV’s Rap Fix just confirmed that the collaboration will indeed be happening.
In slightly less exciting news, Josh Groban is set to perform the national anthem before the game. Will you be watching?
