Not only does the winter season bring colder weather, it also brings events that  occur only during this time of year. A good example of this would be 93.3 FLZ’s fourth annual Jingle Ball concert, which will be held at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, on Sunday, December 9. Each year the lineup seems to get increasingly better, with top singers and DJs performing their hit songs which the crowd most likely knows every word to. This year 93.3 has arranged a phenomenal concert that will be far from disappointing, featuring singers Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Ed Sheeran, and PSY.

            The headliner of TampaBay’s Jingle Ball concert this year is teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber. He is very well known from his hit songs “One Time,” “Baby,” and “One Less Lonely Girl,” which have all been ranked on the Billboard Hot 100. Bieber just recently released his third album Believe this past June and is in the process his second world tour. If you are planning on getting tickets to this year’s Jingle Ball, just make sure to be prepared for thousands of hysterically screaming Justin Bieber fans. 

            Another very popular artist who will be performing at 93.3 FLZ’s fourth annual Jingle Ball is Ke$ha. Her songs such as “Tik Tok,” “Blow,” and “Die Young” have all become a huge hit amongst teenagers, most likely because of the upbeat tune they have and also because they are very original. Ke$ha is known to put on crazy and entertaining shows, so if you are in the need for a good time she would be the last person to let you down.

            A recently new singer to the United Stateswho will also be performing this year is Ed Sheeran. Sheeran is a British singer-songwriter and producer, who in June 2011 released his debut single “The A Team,” which debuted at number 3 on the UK Singles Chart. He is known for soft, acoustic songs where hints of his British accent can be heard throughout his relaxing, unique, and catchy tunes. Sheeran’s bright orange hair and freckled skin contributes to his uniqueness, and he is pretty much incomparable to all other artists nowadays.

Talking about unique, the South Korean band PSY will also be performing at Jingle Ball. PSY released the single “Gangnam Style” in July, and since then it has become an international success. The music video for this song has reached over 700 million views, and has it been ranked on the top ten songs sold on iTunes for months. These achievements are the first for any South Korean artist. To make it even more unique, “Gangnam Style” has a dance that goes along with the catchy beat, and it has become an international sensation.

Other artists who will be there are Sean Kingston, One Republic, Zedd, Walk the Moon, Austin Mahone, The Ready Set, and Bridget Mendler.

The lineup for this year’s 93.3 FLZ Jingle Ball is almost as good as it can get, featuring some of the top singers in today’s music industry. This concert is going to be one you will not want to miss out on so be sure to secure tickets before it’s too late, if it isn’t already.
