PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Q102's Jingle Ball concert is a holiday tradition that brings some of the hottest names in the music business to Philadelphia every December.

"Jingle Ball has become a Philadelphia institution around the holiday season and it's the expectation that the biggest names will come bless the stage with Q102 and we are definitely delivering that this year," said afternoon host Buster.

Among the big names performing this year is Lizzo, who was just here this summer for Made in America.

"Lizzo is literally iconic and the fact that we got her here in Philly is amazing," said Rach on the Radio, Q102's mid-day host. "She did the Rocky steps and had Jim Steaks, so I'm sure she's really hyped to be back here too."

"Halsey is huge, especially because she's from Jersey," Rach said. "I'm from South Jersey and for her, it's going to be like a homecoming."
