Carly Rae Jepsen will sing the Canadian anthem and what remains of Fifth Harmony will sing the US anthem, in a blatant display of Canadian favoritism. Nick Jonas will perform during the 2nd intermission at Sunday's All-Star Game in LA, even though Carly Rae Jepsen should really be doing that, too. Get it together, NHL.
Jon Hamm will also host the NHL100 on Friday, a presentation of the greatest 100 hockey players, with a tribute to Alan Thicke by Robin Thicke, and performances by John Legend and John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting, that other 2000 band with a number in their name and Superman-related song.

CARLY RAE JEPSEN IS NATIONAL TREASURE AND SHE SHOULD PERFORM AT EVERYTHING, YOU CYNICAL MONSTERS.— Ian McLaren (@iancmclaren) January 24, 2017
