Mothers, daughters, reluctant boyfriends and fathers filled in the seats at Madison Square Garden Friday night for Z100’s annual Jingle Ball concert. The woman of the year, Taylor Swift was the headliner and put on an amazing thirty minute set that fans went nuts over. Before Swift even entered the building, the Garden was rocking thanks to Kris Allen, Owl City, John Mayer, Justin Bieber, Jordin Sparks, Boys Like Girls, The Fray, Pitbull, Jay Sean, Ke$ha, and Orianthi. The four hour long concert didn’t wrap up till well past 10:30pm leaving the audience amped after a thrilling show. Curfews were broken, voices were lost, and friends were made making the 2009 Jingle Ball a killer success.
Hands down, this was one of the most electrifying and exhilarating Jingle Ball’s to date but if we had to pick our favorite performances it would be Kris Allen. Yes, it was cool to see Adam Lambert present Taylor Swift and The Fray rock out, but watching Kris Allen jam out was by far the highlight of the night.
Mashups are so hot these days thanks to Glee but still fans were pleasantly surprised when Allen mixed his winning Heartless with a Coolio classic. If you were not at the concert, chances are you have already YouTubed Kris Allen’s stellar Heartless/Gangster Paradise mashup that brought earth shattering screams from the 18,000 plus fans. It’s hard not to fall in love with Kris Allen after watching this performance…
