On May 12, KIIS-FM held the 15th annual Wango Tango at The Home Depot Center in Carson, CA.  With people from all over California flooding into the arena to listen to their favorite artists, The Home Depot Center served as unique concert setting.
“The atmosphere was unbelievable.  It was crazily crowded and it was fun being surrounded by random people who share the same interests with me,” sophomore Natasha Kashani said.  “By the middle of the concert, I was able to sit in the front row and simply looking back at the crowd was shocking – there were so many people.”
KIIS FM host Ryan Seacrest and guest host Justin Bieber held the concert, along with DJ Drew and DJ Triple.
“I always have a blast when I [go to the Wango Tango],” Bieber said during an interview at the concert.  “There are so many great artists each year and you don’t expect to see some of the great talent.”
Several performers at Wango Tango included Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole, Maroon Five and Big Sean.
“My favorite performer was, without a doubt, J. Cole.  The fact that he had so much energy in his performance really made my experience at Wango Tango much more memorable,” sophomore Chaliz Taghdis said.
In addition to the Wango Tango, KIIS-FM also will be hosting the 13th annual Jingle Ball in December.
