Z100 Instagram

Every year, listeners anxiously await the reveal of the star-studding jingle ball lineup. Without fail, Z100 delivered their 14 biggest stars set to perform this Friday at the most anticipated show of the year. So what can we expect from one night and a few hours with all these stars? A lot.

Among those set to perform: Taylor Swift. After releasing her latest album, "Reputation", fans can't wait for the chance to finally get a setlist including some of her newest hits. "Reputation" was preordered over 400,000 times. Double the preorders from Swift's previous album, "1989", according to Billboard. With a new collaboration with one of her best friends and fellow Jingle Ball performer, fans can only hope they'll see a performance from the duo.

Ed Sheeran is sure to grace the stage with his Grammy-nominated song "Shape of You" along with top songs from all three of his incredible albums. Since he's written for the guys of One Direction, could there be a collaboration in their future? Maybe a debut on the Jingle Ball stage? In less than a week, we'll find out.

Speaking of former members of One Direction, Liam Payne released his first single "Strip That Down" in May of 2017 and fans have been pressing for more. Now "Get Low" featuring Zedd and "Bedroom Floor" have been released so the crowd can only hope he'll perform all three. Maybe he'll throw in a One Direction song? I mean, it would only make sense with his fellow former-bandmate hitting the Jingle Ball stage as well!

Niall Horan has been touring his new album, "Flicker" and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. From upbeat hits like "On My Own" and "Slow Hands" to his slower songs like "This Town" and "Too Much To Ask", Horan has his brand new album to choose from. After a lovely picture of Horan surfaced with another Jingle Ball artist, Charlie Puth, maybe that'll be yet another collaboration in the near future.

Jersey native Charlie Puth also has quite a collection of songs to choose from. With "One Call Away" still getting radio air time, it's no wonder he was asked to perform at Jingle Ball. His recent releases "Attention" and "How Long" are sure to get the crowd off their feet. Now if only a lucky lady will volunteer to sing Selena Gomez's parts in "We Don't Talk Anymore"!

Julia Michaels released her debut single "Issues" less than a year ago and is already performing at Madison Square Garden. In June, Michaels released "Uh-Huh" and continued to impress audiences with her unique voice. After a sweet twitter action between the two, maybe a beautiful collaboration between Michaels and Sam Smith?

25-year-old Brit Sam Smith will be sure to sooth the crowd with his incredible voice at this year's Jingle Ball. The four-time Grammy winner will be a highlight on stage with hits like "Lay Me Down", "Stay With Me", "I'm Not The Only One" and "Too Good At Goodbyes" Smith has so much potential to wow his crowd this weekend.

Both The Chainsmokers and Halsey will be performing on the Jingle Ball stage which can only mean one thing. Their hit song "Closer" spent a record breaking 26 weeks in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100. The summer hit is sure to heat up the cold December night.

From her early hits to most recent singles, Demi Lovato is sure to have a variety within her set. Imagine early songs like "Get Back" and "Don't Forget" paired with her latest "Sorry Not Sorry" and owning the stage with "Confident". Her set, along with her incredibly powerful voice, is sure to wow Jingle Ball goers. Maybe she'll break out a duet with Fall Out Boy for "Irresistible"?

Bringing back so many memories, old and new, Fall Out Boy will stun the stage with so so many hits. "Sugar We're Goin' Down" along with "Centuries" and "Uma Thurman" are going to have the crowd going absolutely wild. The band everyone's been following for years will have hit after hit to choose from to keep fans from ever being tempted to sit down.

Taking the radio, performances and world by storm, Logic made headlines with his MTV VMA's performance of his single "1-800-273-8355".The emotional song, with the title being the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, follows the journey of an individual wanting to end their own life, the call to the hotline and the realization that there is more to life and the will to live. Logic is sure to bring out the emotion in his performance.

After years releasing music and touring together, Camila Cabello is away from Fifth Harmony and releasing plenty of her own hit singles. "Bad Things" and "Havana" seem to get stuck in our heads even if we don't want them there! Her fierceness will take the stage and maybe she'll pick a lad performing to join her for "I Know What You Did Last Summer". We can dream, right?

New to the music scene is band Why Don't We. Assembled in September of 2016, the band of just over a year released their first single together, "Taking You", only a month after their ensemble. The newcomers have a chance to leave their mark on the Jingle Ball stage and leave the crowds only wanting more.

Have a question for one of the Jingle Ball artists? Tweet me! I'll be choosing questions to ask at the Jingle Ball red carpet on Friday, December 8.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Those Hormones Aren't Gonna Balance Themselves

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

It's common knowledge that your hormones impact practically every aspect of your body. Weight gain, acne, mental health... it's all related to your hormonal health. If your life is treating your body like the superstar it is, your endocrine glands should produce the perfect amount of each hormone to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. This is a nice thought, sure. In our current society, even the most balanced person you know may be missing an important aspect of respecting their body. Things like sleep, stress, diet, exercise, and a busy pace of life can throw hormones off balance and negatively impact your general wellbeing. Sometimes these imbalances are noticed right away, while other times they can be smaller — annoying, but not as obvious.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

I've always been a picture hoarder. No matter what happens with someone or how many pictures I have of the same thing, I hate deleting pictures. They all serve as memories to me, which is something I think is super important.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
