Griffin, Green delight at NBA All-Star

Fresh off his duet with Gwyneth Paltrow at the Grammy Awards, Cee Lo Green returned to Staples Center for NBA All-Star over the weekend.

The singer-songwriter on Saturday night performed "Forget You," the cleaned-up version of his hit, The Associated Press reports.

Wearing a bright green sweatsuit accented with rhinestones, Cee Lo arrived near the stage on the back of a golf cart, talking on his cell phone. After performing with his all-female band, he sat courtside to watch the slam dunk contest.

Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers had the crowd oohing when he dunked over a car to win the title.

Among the other celebs watching the shooting stars and skill challenge were John Legend and girlfriend-model Chrissy Teigen, Terrell Owens, Spike Lee, boxer Floyd Mayweather, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Lenny Kravitz, Jimmy Jam, Cuba Gooding Jr., Chris Tucker and Penny Marshall.

Wearing a Boston Red Sox cap, Mark Wahlberg sat courtside with his son. NBA great Bill Russell and Shaquille O'Neal of the Boston Celtics were there, too.
