For those staying home on New Year's Eve, watching Dick Clark's countdown in Times Square is usually part of the tradition for ringing in the new year. This year, the ABC show will once again be hosted by Ryan Seacrest Special co-hosts actress Jenny McCarthy and singer Fergie will lend Seacrest a hand, with McCarthy reporting from Times Square, and Fergie checking in from Los Angeles.
The broadcast's festivities include a list of the "30 Greatest Female Artists" in music, a look back at the year in Pop music, check-ins from around the globe, and of course plenty of live performances. This year's lineup of musical acts include: Blondie, Capital Cities, Miley Cyrus, Daughtry, Jason Derulo, Fall Out Boy, Florida Georgia Line, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Icona Pop, Enrique Iglesias, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Robin Thicke, The Fray, and--just announced today--Billy Joel will perform do a special concert from the Brooklyn Barclay's Center shortly after midnight.
And, of course, the night would not be complete without the ten second countdown at the lighted ball drops in New York City's Times Square.
