Adam Lambert to host 93.3's Jingle Ball on Dec. 13



As if you needed any more incentive to hit the 93.3 Jingle Ball concert on Dec. 13 at the St. Pete Times Forum -- headliners include The Fray, Pitbull, Sean Kingston and Jordin Sparks -- here's one more: We're told new king of glam Adam Lambert will serve as host and emcee for the event.

Now, here's the bad news: Glambert isn't scheduled to perform. Which means we may not get to see a repeat of his too-saucy-for-TV performance at the American Music Awards.

But there is good news. Glambert, like all the guests at the Jingle Ball, is scheduled to make an appearance in the MetroPCS Celebrity Club, alongside special guests Leona Lewis, Paradiso Girls, Cobra Starship, Chris Kirkpatrick and -- why not? -- Anthony Sullivan and Billy Mays III. So if it's your undying goal in life to meet Adam Lambert, buy a Celebrity Club ticket. Click here for the details.

What does a host do, exactly? Well, Lambert's role will be to keep the festivities moving and the crowd pumped up between songs. The station is planning to cram 10 performers into less than 5 hours, so a host will be required to move things along. (Lambert isn't the only celebrity pulling host duty at concerts like this -- Ryan Seacrest and Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester are also hosting big year-end concerts.)

Tune into 93.3-FLZ at 5:45 p.m. this afternoon for the official announcement and more details about Lambert's appearance.
