This past Friday (Dec. 13) Madison Square Garden really got into the spirit of the Jingle Bell Rock. Z100 rocked out the Garden with the 2013 Jingle Ball. This year’s lineup included performances from Miley Cyrus, Ariana GrandeMacklemore & Ryan Lewis, Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull, Robin Thicke, Jason Derulo, and many more.

Of all the great performances two stood out, Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande.

Miley Cyrus did not disappoint, she brought her funky, edgy energy to the stage performing We Can’t Stop. Embodying Bad Santa, the 21-year-old wore a glitzy, sexy two-piece. Cyrus continues to shed her innocent girl image, spanking one of her back up dancers onstage. The singer is due credit, she has been able to maintain an ever-growing “Smiler” base.

At the other end of the spectrum was Ariana Grande. The sweet, emerging pop-sensation beautifully sang her hit song, The Way. Wearing a white hot mini-dress and blush pumps Grande turned the dial up on sex appeal. While she showed off her hot, youthful figure, the singer’s voice was the focus of this performance. She has a true talent.

All of the outstanding performances are just part of the magic. Every year a portion of the proceeds  collected from Jingle Ball is given back to the community to celebrate the holiday season. Ryan Seacrest, in particular, was excited because, “all the artists that come are excited to play… and for me it’s fantastic because part of this benefits my foundation. We’ve been building media centers, radio studios, tv studios in children’s hospitals and tonight allows us to keep doing that.”

So happy holidays from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, R. Kelly, Pitbull, Ariana Grande, Jason Derulo, Rbin Thicke, Miley Cyrus, Austin Mahone, Selena Gomez, Fall Out Boy, and Fifth Harmony!
