When you hear that intense cello playing, it can only mean one thing…OneRepublic. Opening their Night 1 of Jingle Ball set with “Secrets” Ryan Tedder brings a new energy to the stage.

Along with a full band which nearly sounds like a 300 piece orchestra, Tedder goes straight into “All The Right Moves” from their last album Waking Up…while playing the piano with one hand while on his knees! Being a superstar producer, it’s not rare for Tedder to get super passionate into the music while on stage.

Next up, the band goes right into “Stop and Stare” while Ryan Tedder grabed his acoustic guitar to work his magic on stage.
Explaining to the Jingle Ball audience that this is something they “rarely do,” One Republic starts playing all new songs for the crowd!
After giving the crowd a new song, One Republic went right into their first smash hit, “Apologize” from their debut album Dreaming Out Loud. Dimming all the lights in the huge theatre to create an intimate atmosphere, Tedder starts covering Rihanna’s “We Found Love”.
Ending with their current single “Feel Again” off their upcoming album Native you can feel the positive energy coming from the crowd. Especially after Ryan Tedder decided to jump into the crowd and jump with the audience! A feel good song, a feel good night and a feel good crowd, perfect way to end their set!
