The pop world's biggest Christmas party is upon us once more, with the 2022 edition of the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball hitting screens this weekend. For those who weren't lucky enough to snag tickets one of the live shows, you can tune into the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2022 in an exclusive televised special on The CW at 8pm ET / PT tonight, Saturday December 17. US citizens can even watch from abroad with a VPN.
This year's A-list acts performing include Dua Lipa, Jack Harlow and Kid Laroi. If that isn't enough to get you excited, then there's also the promise of Lizzo rocking the party dressed as the Grinch while serenading the crowd with her flute.
Other highlights are set to include Charlie Puth offering up a festive cover of Donny Hathoway’s “This Christmas” and Demi Lovato transforming into a leather-clad rock queen for a hard hitting performance with her band.
The iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour kicked off on November 29 in Dallas, and has been making its way across the US including dates in Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Atlanta and Tampa. The tour comes to a close with a show in Miami on December 18, but for those who didn't get to attend, its New York date will be televised this weekend.
Other acts hitting the stage this year at the iconic Madison Square Garden for the New York City show include Lauv, Ava Max, Dove Cameron and Jax. We've got all the details on how to watch the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2022 online in this televised holiday special from anywhere.
