Justin Bieber, Ke$ha and others kick off the holiday season at Jingle Ball 2012 in Tampa


This past weekend, 18-year-old Justin Bieber headlined the sold out 933 FLZ Jingle Ball, a four-hour music palooza of what’s new and what’s hot. The concert also included performances by Ke$ha, Ed Sheeran, One Republic and others at a sold-out Tampa Bay Times Forum.

While there is way too much to put into one article, here are some highlights from the event: Indie British artist Ed Sheeran, known for his collaboration with Taylor Swift, whom he will be touring with next year, performed his hit single The A Team. Sheeran was followed by electronica artist Zedd who got the crowd up and dancing in the aisles.

After that, hit rock/pop band One Republic hit the stage with the crowd singing along to their hits such as, Secrets, Good Life and Feel Good. Then came Ke$ha, who performed six songs, from her hit break-out song, Tik Tok to her new radio hit, Die Young. Ke$ha rocked out on a guitar, danced with creepy background dancers. She brought a whole new level of fun to the concert.

Closing the concert was Bieber, who performed a 10-song set featuring new hits such as All Around the World and Beauty and a Beat, old hits such as Baby and holiday hits like Mistletoe and Christmas Love. His performance, which you can see many up-close photos of in our gallery below, wasn’t only about the songs, but he also brought confetti, CO2 cannons, fireworks, a full band, and dancers along with him making this the highlight of the night.

Earlier in the day, the Jingle Ball kicked off with the action-packed 93.3 FLZ’s Jingle Ball Pre-Show on the Plaza, the official pre-event celebration. The event included performances by fan favorites Bridgit Mendler, Austin Mahone and The Ready Set.
