Miley Cyrus! Robin Thicke! Pitbull! Enrique! Fall Out Boy! Selena Gomez! Fifth Harmony! Macklemore and that other guy! Must be Jingle Ball, Z100’s annual celebration of all things pop, a DJ Earworm year-end mix extended into a four-plus-hour concert. Austin Mahone and Jason Derulo start it off, but things get good when 20-year-old Ariana Grande, a Nickelodeon star turned teen-pop Mariah, performs her Big Pun-influenced “The Way.” Stick around, of course, for all of the above, with most artists staying onstage only long enough to play the hits and the headlining pair offering performances less controversial and more accomplished than expected.
