Backstage At Z100’s Jingle Ball 2008, Paramore Meets The Veronicas

By Akshay Bhansali

Z100’s Jingle Ball ’08 is a wrap with easily one of the more talked about pop artists of 2008, Kanye West closing out the festivities. The press room was alive and chaotic today and some of the artists on the night’s roster were kind enough to make some time for us, as well as the plethora of young fans in waiting.

Although, Katy Perry, Leona Lewis (who judging by the camera crew surrounding her must have been shooting a reality show?), Rihanna, Chris Brown and Kanye West weren’t able to make it to the press area, former “American Idol”-er David Archuleta, Ne-Yo, Hayley and the gents from Paramore, Jesse McCartney, The Veronicas and the ever flamboyant Lady Gaga met up with us to share their year end news.

It was especially cool to observe the Veronicas meeting Paramore properly meeting for the first time (they waved hello to each other at the 2008 MTV Australia Awards).
