If you can't make it to NYC's Madison Square Garden on December 10 to see the annual spectacle of pop music that is the Z100 Jingle Ball, then you can wait six days and watch the whole shebang on Fuse!
It's a huge deal, as it is the first time the show has ever been nationally televised!
Fuse, Madison Square Garden's national music television network and MSG Entertainment have partnered to televise the already-sold-out Z100 Jingle Ball, which is a star-studded annual holiday concert from Z100, New York's Hit Music Station. The broadcast will air on Fuse Thursday, December 16 at 9 PM ET. Z100's Jingle Ball will take place on December 10 at Madison Square Garden. Airing in HD, "Fuse Presents: Z100's Jingle Ball Live From Madison Square Garden," presented by Coca-Cola, will feature performances by Katy Perry, Enrique Iglesias, Paramore, B.o.B, Bruno Mars, Taio Cruz, Selena Gomez and Travie McCoy. This will be the first time music fans across the country will be able to experience the highly anticipated annual event on television.
So if you are in Kansas, Arkansas, Connecticut, Maryland, or Texas, you, too, can watch it.
"There's a reason that Z100's Jingle Ball is legendary. Anyone who's ever attended knows that the show has an energy and excitement like no other," said Darren Pfeffer, Marketing Director of Clear Channel Radio New York and Executive Producer of Z100's Jingle Ball. "We're thrilled that Fuse and Coca-Cola are partnering with us to bring this experience outside the walls of Madison Square Garden and into the homes of its viewers."
This year's sold out show boasts one of the most diverse and exciting lineups in the event's history. Z100's Jingle Ball 2010 will feature over 10 performers and special guest hosts including Kim Kardashian, Jay Sean and Flo Rida. Mayor Bloomberg has also issued a special Proclamation officially declaring Friday, December 10, 2010 as "Z100's Jingle Ball Day" in New York City. You go, Mikey B. You ride the subway to work despite being a millionaire and you give props to pop music. Holla!
