Y100's Jingle Ball 2013 Brought Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Armin Van Buuren to BB&T Center

Categories: Concert Review

There were a few key moments where we didn't feel like everyone's parent. That wasn't the case when anyone with a 1 in the beginning of his or her age performed. Throughout the evening, the teenage crew of Fifth Harmony, Austin Mahone, and Ariana Grande all put on a show. As surprising as it was not to hate every bit of Robin Thicke's performance was the fact that we thoroughly enjoyed all the teen dreams' performances. Fifth Harmony was on point, Austin Mahone had each and every girl on his side, and Ariana Grande is just, well, insanely talented. She has the voice of Mariah Carey and not the attitude. She doesn't yet, at least. She even performed Mariah's "All I want For Christmas Is You." Wonder on a 1 to10 scale how much Mrs. Carey hates how talented she is.

And let's all bow down to all that is Enrique Iglesias and his hotness. OK, that is all.

And then: there was Miley Cyrus. We actually feel bad for everyone that came before her. Which by the way, was every artist we just listed. Sure, they were great, but it was blatantly obvious we were all there to see Cyrus. If not see her perform, at least see what bullshit she would pull this time around. No folks, she did not disappoint. She in fact is still anti-pants and very much pro-little people and twerking on anyone and everything that will allow it. While we could spend the next 10 to 10,000 words talking trash, we wont. Why? Because she made the show. Was it in the same way that no party is complete with out your favorite hot mess? Perhaps, but we will have a very merry Miley Christmas now that we have seen her in person.

Critic's Notebook

The Crowd: Prepubescents, parents and a couple of twenty-somethings doing their best to keep the BB&T Center's liquor license alive.

Highlight: Seeing Miley Cyrus' entourage backstage. Think of any rappers posse you have ever seen. Now, times that by 10. The woman knows how to bring a crowd... literally.

Biggest Disappointment: Really Robin Thicke, you couldn't have recreated the VMAs?
