The event featured iconic and emerging performers including: Katy Perry, BTS, Billie Eilish, Sam Smith, Camila Cabello, Halsey, Lizzo, Louis Tomlinson and Normani.
K-pop sensation BTS opened the show and set the tone for an electrifying evening as they performed their worldwide hits, including “Boy With Luv,” to a roaring crowd. The group also brought out Halsey as a special guest, who performed her own set later on in the show. Halsey’s energetic set included a performance of her Top 40 hits, “Eastside” and “Without Me.” Fans jumped out of their seats for Billie Eilish as she sang “Bad Guy,” “bury a friend,” and many more songs during her first appearance on a Jingle Ball stage. Katy Perry transformed The Forum into a winter wonderland with her back-up singers dressed as gifts. On theme with the decor, she opened her set with “Cozy Little Christmas,” before launching into epic renditions of hit singles, “Firework,” “Roar,” and “Harleys in Hawaii.” Camila Cabello once again wowed the crowd with an acoustic rendition of “Señorita,” along with songs from her just released album Romance, including “Liar” and “Shameless.” Louis Tomlinson made a surprise appearance, singing “We Made It,” “Kill My Mind” and more. Lizzo, decked out in denim cutoff shorts and a red & white holiday-esque cape, danced her way through her set which included her 2016 hit “Good as Hell” and “Juice,” released earlier this year. Sam Smith ended the night with a bang, bringing out Normani for their ultra-popular duet “Dancing With A Stranger” before closing out the 2019 show with his very fitting tune, “Too Good At Goodbyes.”
