Watch: Normani Rocks AT&T’s NBA All-Star Pregame Concert with ‘Motivation,’ Aaliyah Tribute, & More

Published: Sunday 16th Feb 2020 by Rashad

Two months after announcing her Christmas-themed partnership with the NBA (click here to read more), Normani gifted basketball fans a set of high octane performances ahead of the 2020 All-Star Game.

Headlining the AT&T Pregame concert (February 16), the 23-year-old paid homage to fallen basketball legend Kobe Bryant by donning a refashioned version of his Lakers jersey.

Battling the flu to crank out fan favorites ‘Motivation,’ ‘Waves’ (with an interpolated performance of Aaliyah‘s ‘One in a Million’), and more, look inside to see ‘Mani blaze the NBA Crossover at Navy Pier stage like only she can:

    A true STAR.

    No Album OUT. Booking stages


    3 Hits. acclaim. Co signs and no album out . VMA award.


    • MichelleBranchSpiritRoom February 17, 2020

      A true star? Beauty? Critical acclaim?
      Bish where?
      You are clearly delusional
      You are out of touch of reality

    They are dragging her on twitter

    Even selena gomez fans are dragging her

    I have said it before, normani cant sing for shìt, she cant even dance.
    She does splits and kicks, that’s not dancing, those are gimmicks.

    She is over
    She humiliated her self on live TV and she is done.

    And they said she was the new beyonce.

    • King February 17, 2020

      @clarkson what u fail to realize is that Normani is living her dream. It takes a sad person with no life to sit and criticize someone all day everyday. You are the true definition of a pathetic human being.

      • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

        Until u nasty rat normani stans stop attacking Camila, I will continue to attack normani with facts.

        normani humiliated herself today and she is done. She sucks live.

        And u guys said she was a beyonce’s successor.
        I have to laugh

      • King February 17, 2020

        I don’t Stan for anyone. Yea I think Normani is very talented, and yea I love the Camilla album (dream of u and this love are my fav). But u take the defending thing too far. Camilla is a grown ass woman that can defend herself.

      • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

        Normani? Talented? Gurl are u blind.
        Look at this train wreck.


    • Lanafan1 February 17, 2020

      Camila is a racist c***. We will always drag her

      • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

        Say something new cause we’ve heard this before several times

        Normani cant sing
        She has shown her àss to the world today

        She’s over
        Everybody is mocking her
        You know ur vocals ain’t shìt when Selena Gomez fans are dragging u.

    • Hits studio February 17, 2020

      You watched though…THKS!!!

  3. Clarks0oñ February 16, 2020

    Jesus christ, look at the crowd, no hype, so bored. Lol

    Why does she keep pointing the mic to the crowd to sing along, nobody knows her songs.

    This is the second time she has pointed the mic to the crowd to sing along and she got no response, just crickets


    Camila is the star of 5th harmony,
    Even if u dont like Camila atleast Camila knows how to sing live and put on a show.

  4. Nicky February 16, 2020


    Someone is Mad. Normani has acclaim , hits, beauty, awards, talent and a great body


    The top Pop girls don’t know or care for Camicky

    They know Normani ???

    Camicky dropped from the label and exposed as a racist turd with flop songs and a flop album?????????. So many Ls

    • Susan February 16, 2020


    • MichelleBranchSpiritRoom February 17, 2020

      Beauty? Talent? Wow

  5. Nicky February 16, 2020

    Poor Camicky

    Can’t even score a top 40 solo hit without calling da Baby

    I thought she was the new Rihanna


    The public saw that she wasn’t a star when she released 6 flop solo songs in 2019.


    • IKNOWTHETRUTH February 16, 2020


      • Only Facts February 16, 2020

        Here in LA they have radio competitions every morning on the radio giving away tickets to camilas show here at the staples. It’s honestly an embarrassment. Giving away tickets for a couple of day’s is cute for the fans, but they’ve been doing it for 2 months and I feel bad for homegirl.

      • Susan February 16, 2020

        @onlyfacts girl, I thought I was the only one that thought the tickets every morning was strange. Glad it’s not just me. I think they do it twice a day! At 8 am and 6 pm

    • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

      Now they are talking about Camila’s almost sold out tour


      Available tickets: 46.721
      Total tickets: 371.480

      Percentage sold: 87,42%

      The tour starts in September.
      She hasn’t done any promo cause she’s busy filming Cinderella in the uk.

      Back to normani, ???
      She cant sing.
      Everybody has seen it today.
      Beyonce fans, rihanna fans, camila fans etc dragging her. ???

      • Susan February 17, 2020

        The lies.
        The lies.
        The lies.

        You must have a miserable life. Probably no friends. Your family probably disowned you. No job. You live for someone who wouldn’t p*** on you if you were on fire. Sad life

      • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

        Gurl u should know me by now, I dont tell lies.

        Go to touring data on Twitter and see for ur self.
        her US tour dates are almost sold out.

        Yes tickets are still available but she will sell them out when she does promo for the tour.
        Nothing wrong with radio stations giving away tickets to listeners. Everybody does this except beyonce. ?. Its called promo. That’s how u promote a tour.
        Halsey does this
        Harry styles is doing it.

        As I said earlier this romance era us rocky as hell. But Camila is still fighting , 3 songs on the chart right now.
        Female artist with the most entries in 2019 so far.

        Camila is busy right now shooting Cinderella in the uk, unlike normani who is jobless, searching her name on twitter and blocking people who call her a flop

        Normani has ended herself.
        She will never recover from this

      • Susan February 17, 2020

        Nobody is reading that book you typed. You’re a laughing stock. An embarrassment. You have a sad life. Probably overweight, sitting in front of your computer, stuffing your face with McDonald’s and slim fast while you play senorita. Sorry to break it to you, but you’re still a person of color whether you embrace your melanin or hate yourself. We all know you self hate because you don’t want to be a person of color. That’s why you’re miserable. Melanin is beautiful. Too bad your soul isn’t tho

      • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020


        That’s ur comeback?

        Speaking of McDonald’s, normani performed at McDonald’s last year.

        Should I post the clip?

      • C**-ila February 17, 2020

  6. Only Facts February 16, 2020


    • Clarks0oñ February 16, 2020


      The lies
      The delusion

      Everybody dragging her. Even Selena gomez fans are dragging her on Twitter.
      U know u are over when Selena gomez fans drag ur vocals.

      She’s over. There’s no redemption

      The performance was live
      Millions of people, especially black people, her core fan base were watching.

      She has messed herself up big time.
      Go to YouTube, they are dragging her in the comments.

      Normani stans on Twitter are begging people to delete the clips

      She’s done

  7. Paulo February 16, 2020

    It feels a bit unrehearsed. If she gon be caught out of breath with the mic on then the dance and energy need to be on 10 but they weren’t. She can do miles better than this as seen in the VMA performance.

    • Clarks0oñ February 16, 2020

      She’s over.

      Stop being bias
      Normani cant sing, just admit it.

      She has shown her àss on national tv.
      That debut album may never come.

      • Paulo February 16, 2020

        Verb verb noun is not a sentence, dumb troll. I’m not being biased, I’m bothering commenting cause Normani can actually perform unlike the girls you stan for. One sounds like nails on a board and the other is constantly out of breath for carrying that big ass head around.

      • Lanafan1 February 17, 2020

        Camila can’t sing either lol.

  8. Only Facts February 16, 2020

    The funny thing is I’ll take Normani’s worst performance over some of today’s pop girls “best” performances (aside from Ari – I live for Ariana). Did she look a bit bored and unrehearsed? Yes. Are people still begging for my attention and not getting it on here? Yes. Is Canola Oil’s latest video still getting panned almost a week after release? Yes. ?

    • Clarks0oñ February 16, 2020


      This is ur comeback?

      Ur faves is getting ripped apart on twitter. Selena gomez fans are dragging normani, can u imagine , Selena Gomez fans, lol


      It’s over for her.

      She’s gonna flop big time.

      After all the hype, everybody realizing she cant sing live. Lol
      So embarrassing

    • Shayla Queen ? February 17, 2020

      Begging for YOUR attention? B***** you LIVE for it? Look at that “threat” you posted and saying you’ll end me ??? Now you hiding and using “no one is getting my attention” as your reasoning. You sad pathetic loser of a clown ??? You have embarrassed yourself lol. Only reason you won’t reply to me is because you’d have to back up your words when you can’t ??? Have a fun day crying ???

    • Shayla Queen ? February 17, 2020

      It’s safe to say, I WON, bïiiiiiiitch and I am LOVING IT so much I could lick my lips all day ???

  9. Erica February 16, 2020

    Damn normani

    • Clarks0oñ February 16, 2020


  10. Susan February 16, 2020

    Every performance won’t be amazing. We all know Normani can perform and shut down a stage. Maybe she was under the weather. We all have off days. And I’m glad waves is getting performances still! I love that song. And I love Ms. Normani! Keep going girl! It’s a marathon, not a sprint.

    • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

      “Every performance won’t be amazing. We all know Normani can perform and shut down a stage.”

      Gurl how many times has normani given us a bad performance?
      Streamy awards
      Motivation acoustics
      Vma performance had “mic issues”
      Now this NBA performance

      Gurl cant sing
      Normani sucks

  11. Lanafan1 February 17, 2020

    Camila is a racist c***. We will always drag her

    • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

      Say something new cause we’ve heard this before.

      Ur faves disgraced herself today
      She is done
      Black people dont stan mediocrity

      Selena Gomez fans are dragging her on Twitter

  12. HavanaONana February 17, 2020


    I prefer Justin Bieber Yummy performance over this crappp

  13. Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

    This is to show yall Camila was the main vocalist in 5th harmony
    Camila did all the singing, she carried the group, that’s why when she left they started flopping.

    I thought yall said normani is that bìtch?
    She’s over.

    This is why normani has been hiding
    This is why she doesnt do promo
    She doesnt want the public to know she can’t sing live.

    She’s over.
    Black people have very high taste when it comes to music. They will never support this trash called normani.


    Normani has ended her own career herself.
    We like to see it. Lol

  14. Bravo!! February 17, 2020

    Wtf was up with Chaka Kahn rendition??

  15. ERIC February 17, 2020

    It wasn’t bad at all. I just think she needed a headset mic for more flexibility.

  16. Cûûmila Cebolla February 17, 2020

    Camela is a racist w***** and her mother should be shot for giving birth to such a disgrace to humanity

    • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

      Normani still cant sing and she’s over.

      Go to Twitter, she is the bùtt of every joke.
      A laughing stalk

      She’s done.

      My oh my entering the top 30 tomorrow
      We like to see it

  17. Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

    Damn, her team have taken down the performance. Lol

    We have it already saved on our devices.

    • HavanaONana February 17, 2020

      I noticed the same thing. Lol

      Too late it’s been saved and shared ????

      • Clarks0oñ February 17, 2020

        We got her on candid camera

  18. Stop February 17, 2020

    Garbage. This girl is lame. Her music is crap, her voice is mediocre and her dancing is blah.

  19. Susan February 17, 2020

    ATTENTION EVERYONE: Contact your local radio stations and email them requesting that they stop playing Camila Cabello’s music because she is a racist. I just reached out to 102.7 here in LA and they responded saying they are looking into it and contacting corporate so they “do not offend or alienate any of their listening audience”. If we do this throughout the country, maybe we can get this racist blacklisted from radio.

    • MichelleBranchSpiritRoom February 17, 2020

      Maybe you should be the one that needed to be blacklisted. U and your flop idol f*******

    • Shayla Queen ? February 17, 2020

      Normani gets no radio play anyway because she has no hits ???

      • MichelleBranchSpiritRoom February 17, 2020


        And that is almost like being blacklisted already LOL

  20. Xoxo February 17, 2020


  21. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. February 17, 2020

    Too stagey and rehearsed. This poor child. I just don’t see her elevating her career.
