Britney Spears Will Perform on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest
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.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
