Los Angeles’ KISS FM brought the holiday fun to The Forum last night (Dec. 6) for the annual Jingle Ball concert, and some of the biggest names in music rocked the stage.
The star-studded evening featured BTS, Billie Eilish, Halsey, Katy Perry, Lizzo, Sam Smith, Normani and more. With a lineup that hot, it’s no surprise the show was filled with some amazing moments.
See below for five Jingle Ball highlights.
BTS’s opening performance, featuring a special guest
The K-pop superstars kicked off the night with a high-energy set met with venue-shaking screams from the crowd. Complete with slick choreography and decked in stylish white outfits, the boys delivered all their hits, including “Boy With Luv,” during which fellow Jingle Ball performer Halsey joined them onstage for the group’s dynamic collaboration.
Katy Perry’s winter wonderland
“You love my nutcrackers and my balls?” Perry cheekily asked the crowd as she sauntered across the stage, which was transformed into a festive fantasy filled with massive, colorful ornaments, Christmas trees and tinsel. Perry was dressed as a hot pink snowflake, while her band rocked Nutcracker outfits and her back-up singers were presents under the tree. To top it all off, Perry opened her set with a rendition of her holiday tune, “Cozy Little Christmas.”
Lizzo’s holiday outfit
Move over Mrs. Claus: Lizzo is the new Queen of Christmas. The singer took the stage in denim cutoffs, a sparkling silver top and, most iconically, a red-and-white cape in the style of ol’ Kris Kringle.
Sam Smith & Normani’s “Dancing With a Stranger” performance
Smith took the Jingle Ball stage with their characteristic charisma and sass, beginning the collab in the center of a circle of dancers. The group delved into fluid choreography before Normani joined them onstage, matching with her collaborator in a silky pink outfit. Besides sounding amazing, the duo simply looked like they had so much fun performing together.
Camila Cabello’s album release celebration
The era of Romance has begun, as the “Havana” singer officially unveiled her sophomore album on Friday (Dec. 6). To celebrate her new album, Cabello took the Jingle Ball stage in a romantically red outfit, and performed a number of songs from her new project, including “Liar,” “Shameless” and an acoustic version of her Shawn Mendes collab, “Senorita.”
