The annual pop mega-concert that is the 101.3 KDWB Jingle Ball has solidified.
This year's show, which hits the Xcel Energy Center on December 10, will feature the owners of two of pop's biggest hits in 2013, Michele Bachmann impersonator Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke. The "We Can't Stop" and "Blurred Lines" stars, who performed together at this year's MTV VMAs, will hopefully give this crowd something else to finally talk about. The rest of the lineup and concert details are below.

Compared to the 2012 show, which featured PSY playing "Gangnam Style" twice as a headlining set, there's a bit more meat on the bones this year. Beyond Cyrus and Thicke, there are a few gems in the middle of the bill. Fall Out Boy are consummate pop-punk professionals who lit up Myth earlier this year.
But the actual highlight of the night could very well be Ariana Grande, a crossover sensation reminiscent of early Mariah Carey. Here, she and Jimmy Fallon turn hip hop into showtunes in adorable fashion. She can't downplay her impressive pipes even when covering Cypress Hill and Macklemore.
