It’s hard to believe that there’s under a month left of 2018. New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and that means so is Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. It airs on ABC on 12/31 starting at 8/7c.
They just announced who will ring in 2019.
After Dick Clark passed away, Ryan Seacrest took over as the main host and will continue to do so this year. This will be his 13th year hosting. He is joined by Jenny McCarthy and they will watch the ball drop in Times Square, NY.
Lucy Hale will ring in the new year in New Orleans, LA while Ciara counts it down in Hollywood, CA. The different hosts allow each time zone to celebrate the new year.
The lineup this year includes Charlie Puth, Dua Lipa, Kelsi Ballerini, The Chainsmokers, Foster the People, Ella Mai, Macklemore with Skylar Grey, Bazzi, Halsey, Weezer, Lauren Alaina, Kane Brown, host Ciara, Camilla Cabello, and Shawn Mendes!
Florida Georgia Line and Maren Morris will celebrate the new year in New Orleans.
Post Malone will be the first performer of 2019 on the east coast right after the ball drops in Times Square.
Christina Aguleria will close out 2018 with a performance in Times Square. Joining her will be Bastille, New Kids on the Block, and Dan & Shay.
“For 47 years, New Year’s Rockin’ Eve has been America’s Biggest and most watched party of the year,” said Mark Bracco, Executive Producer and VP for Dick Clark Productions, in an interview with Billboard.
The telecast lasts for 5 1/2 hours in order to cover all time zones.
