We’re still trying to decide which of these 25 fancy New Year’s Eve dinner party ideas to make on December 31, but we definitely know what we’ll have on the TV when the celebration rolls around: Britney Spears just announced that she’ll be joining host Ryan Seacrest for New Year’s Rockin’ Eve!
As she prepares to leave her Las Vegas residency behind, the pop star will be welcoming the next 12 months with a bang by appearing on ABC in what they’re calling the “first television performance of 2018.”
The singer took to Instagram to share the news with her fans directly, writing, “Going to be ending 2017 with the last #PieceOfMe show ever and a special performance on @rockineve!! Tune in to ABC on 12/31 starting at 8/7c to watch!! #BRITNEYxRockinEve”
According to reports, Spears will perform her hits “Toxic” and “Work Bitch,” which will certainly help to set the tone for an upbeat-yet-hardcore year ahead.
Though the live event shoots in New York, Spears’ performance will be shown via the huge outdoor screens in Times Square as she takes in the stage at the AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, where she’s spent the past four years nailing her “Britney: Piece of Me” residency. It certainly seems like the perfect way to wrap up that chapter and ring in a new year.
With Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas, and Sugarland also performing, this Rockin’ Eve is shaping up to be a fun-filled night.
New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest and Britney Spears will air from 8pm to 2:13am ET on ABC.
