Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes And Sam Smith Tapped For 2020 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball
The star-studded event will take place virtually on December 10.
The star-studded lineup for iHeartRadio’s 2020 Jingle Ball has been announced and will feature appearances by Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, Sam Smith, Doja Cat, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, and Lewis Capaldi.
The annual event presented by Capital One will be taking place on December 10 on The CW App, CWTV.com, and on the iHeartRadio App. An exclusive TV special recording of Jingle Ball will be broadcasted on The CW on December 14.
Following tradition, Jingle Ball will be made up of performances of original songs and covers of iconic holiday songs. The only difference this year is that fans will be watching from home rather than in sold-out arenas throughout the U.S. for the Jingle Ball Tour.
Our 2020 #iHeartJingleBall lineup is the best thing to happen this year! 🎄 Which performances are you most excited for?

This marks Shawn Mendes’ third time performing at the event, he made his debut at the 2015 tour, performing songs from his debut album Handwritten, and more recently, he performed on the 2018 tour performing his hits, “In My Blood” and “Lost In Japan” from Shawn Mendes. In both instances, the pop singer’s breakthrough hit “Stitches” is a setlist staple. This year, it’s likely that he will be incorporating his latest release “Wonder” into his performance, alongside the popular singles fans expect to hear.
Sam Smith first played Jingle Ball in 2017 and returned to the event for select dates in 2019. They performed modern classics “Stay With Me” and their Disclosure collaboration “Latch,” alongside “Too Good At Goodbyes” from In The Lonely Hour, and “Dancing With A Stranger” featuring Normani from their latest album Love Goes.
Billie Eilish also appeared on the 2019 Jingle Ball lineup, but only for the Los Angeles date. At the time, she was still riding the high from her studio album debut. When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? featured hit singles “Bad Guy,” “Bury A Friend,” and “When The Party’s Over.”
Since then, Eilish has released a string of memorable singles including “Everything I Wanted” and “My Future.” She also wrote and recorded “No Time To Die” as the theme song for the 25th James Bond film of the same name, becoming the youngest musician to ever do so.
