ORLANDO, Florida — Pitbull sure knows how to put on a show, and during his halftime performance at the 2012 NBA All-Star Game in Orlando, Mr. Worldwide brought out a few of his famous friends. During his medley of hits including “Rain Over Me,” “International Love” and “Give Me Everything,” the Miami rapper shared the stage with Nayer, Ne-Yo and Chris Brown.
“For me, what it’s about is showing that music is the universal language. It shows you that no matter where you’re from, what you represent, where you grew up or no matter what your culture or background may be, music brings everybody together,” Pitbull told MTV News from his dressing room at the Amway Center in Orlando after his performance. “To have Chris Brown come out, to have Ne-Yo come out, Nayer come out — we’re all from different backgrounds, but music brings us together.”
With his performance, Pit embodied what the NBA All-Star game is all about: bringing superstar talents together and putting their skills on display. Onstage, Pitbull and company did just that as they rocked the thousands of fans at the Amway Center.
Pitbull has performed at so many big events, but when asked where his halftime NBA All-Star show ranked, he couldn’t quite put a number on it. “As far as a rating, I’d rate it a blessing,” he said.
