iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Kicks Off in Dallas

jingleLast night at 106.1 KISS FM’s Jingle Ball 2016 Presented by Capital One at American Airlines Center, the stars were out in full force on the first stop of the national iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour 2016 Presented by Capital One. The kick-off event featured iconic and emerging performers including: Meghan Trainor, The Chainsmokers, Fifth Harmony, Backstreet Boys, Alessia Cara, Charlie Puth, Daya, Lukas Graham and Hailee Steinfeld.

Daya kicked off the Jingle Ball tour with her current hit single “Sit Still Look Pretty.” Female lead acts – Hailee Steinfeld, Fifth Harmony, Alessia Cara, and Meghan Trainor all dominated the stage in Dallas.

Charlie Puth stole the show for his second consecutive Jingle Ball tour appearance, fearlessly playing the piano and performing a new song he noted he “just finished writing a few weeks ago.”

Pop icons Backstreet Boys performed their anthem “Backstreet’s Back,” leaving the fans on their feet and yearning in nostalgia for more 90s hits.

DJ duo The Chainsmokers closed out the night and were later joined by Daya for a pyro-frenzied performance of their hit song, “Don’t let me Down.”

106.1 KISS FM’s iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2016 is the first stop of the national iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour, the season’s biggest annual music event that captures the holiday spirit of the iHeartRadio app, in Dallas, San Francisco/San Jose, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Atlanta, Tampa and Miami.
