Gym Class Heroes Travie McCoy at Jingle Ball/ Star Tribune photo by Marlin Levison
Let the record reflect: There was 130 minutes of live music and 90 minutes of intermissions between acts at KDWB’s Jingle Ball Sunday at Target Center.
No act played longer than 30 minutes (actually Kelly Clarkson was the only one to do a half-hour) and Foster the People offered only three songs in 15 minutes. No one appeared to be lip-syncing. In fact, Clarkson could have done without her two female backup singers, who made her choruses sound shrill at times. Btw, enjoyed the interview Clarkson did with a KDWB personality, taped before she hit the stage.
