'Tis the season for 101.3 KDWB to cram your ears full of Christmas cheer at their annual Jingle Ball. This year, the Target Center will be playing host to a bevy of top-flight performers—and Avril Lavigne. The highlight is sure to be Kanye West, who handily beat out 50 Cent when West's Graduation trounced Fiddy's Curtis in first-week sales back in September. The defeat has certainly taken its toll on Mr. Cent: As of this writing, 50 Cent is only worth .34 Euros. Super-producer Timbaland is also sure to bring the ruckus with a couple of artists he's recently lent his Midas touch to, Keri Hilson and One Republic. Maybe you haven't heard of them, but you've heard of Missy Elliott, right? You can thank Timbo for that. Also slated to perform are Jordin Sparks, who apparently won some type of televised talent competition, and Good Charlotte, who are described by KDWB's website as "just barely distinctive from the likes of corporate alternative rockers Blink-182 and Third Eye Blind." They said it, not me.
