Here’s Everyone That’s Performing for NYE Tonight and Where to Catch Them
It’s finally here — the end of 2016! After what many considered to be a grueling year (Ronda Rousey, Prince, Bowie and celeb fans in general would likely agree), we’re ready to put it all behind us and look ahead to the New Year.
We’re less than seven hours away from the ball drop on the East Coast, but before we throw deuces up to the year at hand, we’re in for a few treats in the form of some killer musical performances. Check out who’s set to rock out tonight and where you can catch them playing.
Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest, ABC, 8 pm/7c
Considered by many to be THE New Year’s show of the night, the late Dick Clark’s celebration will span five and half hours and four different locations (Times Square, Las Vegas, New Orleans, St. Marteens). Performers include such big names as Mariah Carey (who’ll be smooching her new man post-show), Lionel Richie, Demi Lovato, Panic! at the Disco, Jason Derulo and DNCE, to name a few.
Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution, FOX, 11/10c
For those that want to dance the night away, there’s Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution. Hosted in (where else!?) Miami, the show’s host will be doing his thang alongside such guests as Snoop Dog, Salt-N-Peppa, Coolio and Young MC.
New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly, NBC, 11:30/10:30
Carson Daly will be giving Ryan Seacrest a run for his money tonight with acts such as Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Pentatonix and Voice co-star Blake Shelton. We might even catch a surprise from a Spice Girl or two, to boot — Mel B. is set to co-host, and Mel C. has been posting pics by a stage… (hey, a girl can dream, right?).
Country crooner Keith Urban will be rocking the political crowd tonight, with Anderson Cooper bantering with Kathy Griffin as co-hosts of the gig.
No TV? No problem. Times Square is hosting a web event (hosted by Mean Girls’s Jonathan Bennett, who checked in on Lilo after a boating accident that left her with a detached finger) that will feature performances from the likes of Gavin DeGraw and Rachel Platten.
