Before she became the punch line du jour and introduced the world to "twerking," Miley Cyrus was a talented sitcom star and hitmaker.
Now she's coming to Tampa, headlining the mammoth 93.3 Jingle Ball 2013, set for Dec. 18 at the Tampa Bay Times Forum
She's joined by a couple of other famous offspring of famous fathers, her twerking partner Robin Thicke (son of sitcom star Alan) and Latin pop singer Enrique Iglesias (son of Latin pop singer Julio). Also on the bill are rock band Paramore, rapper Flo Rida, teen idol Austin Mahone, Nickolodeon star Ariana Grande, "X-Factor" girl group Fifth Harmony and rapper Travie McCoy.
A few of those acts -- Fifth Harmony, McCoy and Mahone -- will join Tegan & Sara for a free Jingle Ball Pre-Show on the West Plaza of the Forum.
The pre-show gets going at 3 p.m. and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m.
