Tuesday: This year’s Jingle Ball could have the best and most timely “gets” since KDWB landed Kanye West back in, oh, he canceled, remember? Actually, Jingle Ball 2013 is for the first time a bona fide tour — not a show tailored for the Twin Cities — put together by Clear Channel Media and the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, bringing the same lineup to 12 cities. Has there been any more-talked-about pop star this year than Miley Cyrus? “We Can’t Stop,” “Wrecking Ball,” that foam finger? Enough. Her MTV VMAs partner in crime, Robin Thicke, will be jingling, too, with “Blurred Lines,” one of 2013’s biggest songs. Other Ballers include “I Like It” hitmaker and KDWB Jingle Ball vet Enrique Iglesias, “Whistle” rapper Flo Rida, enduring emo rockers Fall Out Boy, big-voiced Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande, YouTube teen sensation Austin Mahone and “X Factor” girl group Fifth Harmony. (7:30 p.m. Tue., Xcel Energy Center, Kellogg Blvd. & W. 7th St., St. Paul, $38-$153.)
