Justin Bieber has taken this nation by storm ever since being discovered on YouTube. The teenage heartthrob exploded in popularity with no bad nature, a great raising by his single mom, and good people around him steering him down the right path. A great role model for young men/boys out there, Beiber puts his whole heart and all of his energy into each and every show. Because he was discovered on the Internet, he does not take his celebrity for granted, so he puts everything he has into each and every performance. Expect perfection.

Taylor Swift always blows her fans away when a new album comes out. Everyone wants to know who she worked with, who and what relationship certain songs are referring to, and what ex of hers will react to said songs. Entertaining to say the least. She has always been known to have a huge heart and passion for everything she does — and everyone she gets romantically involved with — and she engulfs each song in her emotions. She gives 110 percent back to her audience by putting on the most spectacular display fans love. Taylor Swift spreads her music across the genres: country, rock, rap, pop, etc., making waves with every move.

Pink has been through an amazing journey in the music industry. She came out as a rebel-like rap character, and years later, married with a baby, hit the pop scene. She changed the way she performed and created music her own way, with her priorities at hand, not anyone else’s. She’s the kind of pop artist music lovers love to grow with, and her new performances really show how amazingly she’s developed through the years.

Hours: Jan. 8 – 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.This collection of young male artists has been at the top of its game in the past, but seems to be taking it easy and performing at its own pace these days. These gents perform similar types of music and appeal to a similar type of audience, so it makes sense for them to do a tour together. Not only has their music been featured on television shows and movies, but they’ve made appearances in those TV shows and movies as well.
