One Direction, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift Lead Z100 Jingle Ball Lineup

The Wanted, Ne-Yo and Ed Sheeran will also perform December 7 at New York's Madison Square Garden

With the holidays right around the corner, New York radio station Z100 is getting us into the spirit with the annual Jingle Ball concert. And this year, the lineup is more star-studded than ever.

On Friday (October 19), Z100 — with the help of boy band the Wanted — announced the lineup for the 2012 event, and it’s a pop-music extravaganza.

Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and One Direction are all leading the stellar lineup for the event that hits New York’s Madison Square Garden on December 7.

The Wanted, who will also be hitting the Jingle Ball stage, were on hand to announce the lineup at the official kickoff party at the Aeropostale store in Times Square. “[We're] really excited and just really looking forward to getting there,” Siva Kaneswaran told Z100. “It’s our first time in the Garden.”

Following the interview, the British boy band treated hundreds of fans to a five-song set, including their hits “Chasing the Sun” and “Glad You Came” and latest single “I Found You.”

Of course, these aren’t the only acts that will be performing in front of the New York crowd. Swift and One Direction collaborator Ed Sheeran will take the stage, as well as fellow British singer/songwriter Olly Murs.

But wait, there’s more! Ne-Yo, B.o.B, Jason Mraz and Fun. round out the list of performers who will bring their biggest hits to one stage in December.

Tickets for the concert go on sale Monday for VIP members and Tuesday for the general public.
