So you couldn’t make it to New York City to see the ball drop in Times Square New Year 2010? That’s ok, because there’s plenty of television coverage of the event to enjoy without worrying about crowd control and getting crushed while trying to count down to the new year. ABC will present Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve for its 38th straight year, which has become a tradition amongst many households across the country, synonomous with the ball dropping to ring in the new year.
“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” will be hosted by Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest in the heart of New York City, Times Square. Their specials will begin at 10 PM EST on ABC (with interruptions for local news programs). Included in the lineup of performers will be The Black Eyed Peas, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Keri Hilson, Colbie Caillat and Robin Thicke. Daughtry will also be on hand to perform four songs while Jennifer Lopez will sing several of her hit songs right before the ball drops in Times Square. This will be a three-part special with the first part happening between 10 PM and 11 PM EST. Part two will start back up after local news at 11:30 PM until 1:05 AM to cover Dick Clark’s countdown to the New Year. The third part will feature Black Eyed Peas’ band member and singer Fergie hosting a Las Vegas edition of New Year’s Eve. So this will make for one exciting bi-coastal coverage of our transition from 2009 into 2010!
