Oh, it's the most wonderful time of the year! The month of December brings holiday cheer, twinkling Christmas lights, and Fuse Music Week: Z100's Jingle Ball, presented by Coca-Cola.

The annual star-studded bonanza returns to Madison Square Garden on Friday, Dec. 7 and will feature some of this year's hottest artists. In addition to performances from Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and One Direction, Jingle Ball's 2012 lineup boasts Ne-Yo, The Wanted, Jason Mraz, Ed Sheeran, Fun., B.o.B, Olly Murs and Cher Lloyd.

This year's show marks One Direction's first time performing at Jingle Ball. Veteran act Justin Bieber will be making his third appearance after performing at both the 2009 and 2010 shows, while Taylor Swift returns for a second time following her 2009 performance.

If you were lucky enough to snag a ticket to this sold out show, be sure to stop by Coca-Cola's "Open Happiness" vending machine on the 6th floor of Madison Square Garden before the concert starts. This free and interactive game doles out your favorite Coca-Cola beverages -- but with a few surprise premium items (A toy? A surfboard? Nobody can guess, not even us!).
