Los Angeles, CA – N.E.R.D provided the halftime entertainment as Team LeBron beat Team Stephen 148-145 at the NBA All-Star game in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 19).
The group had the audience at the Staples Center on their feet as they performed a medley of hits, including “1000” and the Rihanna-assisted “Lemon” (minus Rihanna) off their most recent album, No_One Ever Really Dies.
Elsewhere, N.E.R.D brought out Migos to perform the Pharrell-produced “Stir Fry” off the ATL group’s latest album, Culture II.
The halftime entertainment has been met with mixed reviews by fans online, with both N.E.R.D and Migos’ performances being questioned by those who tuned in.
Wow Migos doing better than Pharell isn’t something I thought I’d ever tweet

NERD shoulda did all the classics and the Lemon joint and dassit. The real fans care. Leave Migos in the crowd and out of your moment.
