This is breaking news and at this point, the full celebrity line-up that will lend their talents for the festivities have yet to be announced.
Leslie Jones is known for her humor and is guaranteed to bring plenty of laughter to the New Year’s Eve celebration. Meanwhile, Keith Urban will host and perform live music from Nashville. Urban will perform live from the Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve from Nashville’s Bicentennial State Park.
Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend are no stranger to NBC this season as they have celebrated several holiday specials including their latest hit A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy.
This will mark Carson Daly’s 14th year hosting the New Year’s Eve special. In addition to his special co-hosting shows, he regularly hosts The Voice, Last Call with Carson Daly and is a staple on Today.
Though the musical line-up has yet to be announced, NBC’s New Year’s Eve is known to have top-artists each year so there’s no reason to think there won’t be a great show this year.
Security is always an issue when approximately one million party-goers gather in New York to watch the ball drop live.
Past performers include Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams, Adele, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam LeVine, Anthony Anderson, Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno, Amy Poehler, Casadee Pope, and more.
As NBC’s New Year’s Eve tends to include host from The Voice, there is a good chance Kelly Clarkson or Jennifer Hudson may appear, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. We’ll let you know as soon as the announcements are made.
Chrissy Teigen previously co-hosted NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly in 2014.
