The Z100 Jingle Ball is an annual holiday concert that features the year’s hottest pop stars in a sassy, sexy concert. Everybody who is anybody is there performing or presenting. Musicians who perform during the annual Jingle Ball know they’re what’s hot right now.
This year’s Jingle Ball airs Dec. 18 on The CW and features mega-watt musical performances and incredible guest presenters. This is a much buzzed-about concert and one of the larger, non-award show music events of the year. What Jingle Ball 2014 moment will everyone be talking about the next day? (My guess is the absolutely scandalous outfit Charli XCX wore on the red carpet! (see! –>)
In the past few years, the arrivals at the Z100 Jingle Ball have become almost as important as the concert itself. This year’s red carpet had Gwen Stefani showing off chunky black highlights, Pharrell Williams in yet another hat, Iggy Azalea in a blaze orange pantsuit, and Rita Ora in an ensemble that featured black thigh-high boots.
