ORLANDO, Fla. (CBS/AP) Gym Class Heroes will headline the first NBA All-Star pregame concert. J. Cole, Pentatonix and Kayla Brianna also will perform before tipoff on Feb. 26.

Gym Class Heroes, led by Travie McCoy, will be joined by Neon Hitch on the new single "Get Yourself Back Home." Rapper J. Cole, the first artist signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label, is a recent Grammy nominee. Pentatonix recently earned fame by winning "The Sing Off" and Brianna, daughter of former NBA player Kenny Smith, will debut her single "If You Love Me."

The pregame Concert will be air live at 5 p.m. ET on NBA TV, leading up to the TNT pregame show and basketball game.

The cast of "Glee" performed a version of the Gym Class Heroes song, "Stereo Hearts" during Tuesday's episode.

"Stereo Hearts" and "Get Yourself Back Home" appear on Gym Class Heroes' latest album, "The Papercut Chronicles II," released in November.
