Madison Square Garden was brimming with excitement as fans and music lovers all gathered around for the Z100’s Jingle Ball 2016.
The star-studded line-up brought it in full force for the 6th stop on the national iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour 2016 Presented by Capital One. Performers included Justin Bieber, The Chainsmokers, Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony, Ellie Goulding, Charlie Puth, Diplo, Daya, and Lukas Graham, along with special guests Niall Horan and Rita Ora.
The event contained many gleaming moments and unforgettable collabs. Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello surprised the crowd as she took the stage with Houston-raised rapper Machine Gun Kelly to perform their Top 20 hit “Bad Things”. Diplo added on to the excitement by performing his version of Bieber’s “Cold Water” with surprise guest MØ and Justin Bieber closed out the evening on a high note with his mega chart toppers “Sorry”, “Where Are Ü Now”, “Company”, and “Boyfriend”.
The ultimate highlight of the night was when DNCE, Fifth Harmony, Rita Ora, Hailee Steinfield, Charlie Puth, Jake Miller, Tinashe, Sabrina Carpenter, and Daya banded together to perform a magical rendition of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”. The collaboration was not only a magical moment for the fans, but also a nice surprise for New York’s homeless community. For each ticket sold, the concert promised to donate $1.00 to the Ryan Secrest Foundation – a non-profit group dedicated to inspire today’s youth through entertainment and education focused initiatives.
