Normani performed her ‘Birds of Prey’ collaboration, “Diamonds” along with a string of fan favorites at the NBA All Stars Game pre-concert on Sunday, February 16th.
Despite early reports hinting Normani would be joined by Megan Thee Stallion for “Diamonds,” the rising rapper was notably absent from Sunday’s performance. Megan performed directly after Normani on the same stage, so it remains unclear as to why they didn’t link up.
Normani also took a moment to pay tribute to the late Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi ahead of her “Dancing With a Stranger” performance:
“I have one more song for y’all. But before I go, I want to show some love for Kobe and Gigi. Can you make some noise? Legends never die, they live on forever. And I just want to send my condolences to Vanessa and the rest of the girls.”
