Just when you thought you could finally avoid Miley Cyrus for at least one day’s news cycle, now comes word that she will be among the performers at this year’s KDWB Jingle Ball, happening Dec. 10 at Xcel Energy in St. Paul.
The world's most famous twerker tops out the Ball bill alongside “Blurred Lines” hitmaker Robin Thicke, who might actually generate the most ticket sales for the event. Also on the lineup are: second-generation Latino pop star Enrique Iglesias; Nickelodeon-generated pop singer Ariana Grande; teen YouTube sensation and “next Bieber” contender Austin Mahone; “Whistle” rapper Flo Rida; Chicago emo-rock Fall Out Boy and “X-Factor” girl group Fifth Harmony.
Fans who register to become a “KDWB VIP” can buy tickets via Ticketmaster for a 24-hour period starting Tuesday at 5 p.m. The general Ticketmaster on-sale time is next Saturday, Oct. 19, at noon. Prices are listed as $51.30 and $170.60 (nope, nothing in between).
Following her controversial, sexually twisted “twerking” performance with Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards in September, Cyrus has been in the media seemingly nonstop. The 20-year-old daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus hosted “Saturday Night Live” last weekend and appears topless with her tongue out on the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
KDWB is just one of several Clear Channel-owned Top 40 stations around the country getting Cyrus and Thicke together at their promotional concerts in December.
