Miley Cyrus has been going out of her way to be controversial the past few months so it's no surprise the reviews of her performances on the Jingle Ball tour have focused on her Santa-influenced bikini and her signature twerking moves. At a couple of shows, her opening numbers have her twerking a dwarf in a cone bra.

Fans have reportedly been loving her shows, so they'll probably have a great time Wednesda at 93.3FLZ's Jingle Ball at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Cyrus is the headliner, but the entire lineup is full of names that ought to arouse the passion of the target audience: Robin Thicke, Enrique Iglesias, Flo Rida, Paramore, Austin Mahone, Ariana Grande, Jason Derulo, Fifth Harmony and Travie McCoy.

Outside the forum, starting at 3 p.m., is a "Pre-show Free Show" with several Jingle Ball artists. Fifth Harmony, McCoy and Mahone are all scheduled to appear at the pre-show, and so are former indie darlings and current hit-makers Tegan & Sara. The pre-show on the west plaza of the forum is open to all ages. Besides the music, the pre-show includes contests and ticket upgrades from participating sponsors.

Details: 7:30 p.m. Dec. 18, Tampa Bay Times Forum, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. Tickets: $46, $61, $76, $100, $181. Information: 813-301-2500,
