There are only a couple more days left before we all say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019. This also means there’s only a couple of days before the big Time Square 2019 Ball Drop and New Year celebration. Ticket passes, party information, and more are all available on the balldrop.com website. But for those of us who can’t go out to Time Square or aren’t even in New York, not to worry because there’s the timeless Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest that airs on ABC, beginning at 8 p.m. ET. The headliner for the show will be Christina Aguilera who will be performing their live.
There will be other live and pre-taped performances as well. Some of these performances will be given by Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Kelsea Ballerini, Post Malone, Dua Lipa, and more. Furthermore, some of these performances are being broadcasted from places like Hollywood and New Orleans. NBC will also have their own showing of the ball drop with Carson Daly, Chrissy Teigen and Leslie Jones as the hosts. Stars that will perform at this show include Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Black Shelton, and others.
Also, NBC will have a broadcast coming from Keith Urban’s New Year’s Eve Nashville Party. Other networks that will be covering Time Square include Fox and CNN. Fox will celebrate with host Steve Harvey and will have concerts from Sting, Jason Aldean, and Florence + the Machine. CNN will have Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen who will highlight some of 2018’s biggest moments.
