We're so close to 2016, and Ryan Seacrest has a very long list of friends that he's going to celebrate the New Year with for "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin’ Eve" TV special. Oh, and there's absolutely no exaggeration here. We're talking about 5 1/2 hours of live music.
The broadcast, which will be co-hosted by Jenny McCarthy and Carrie Underwood, will feature performances from the former "American Idol" alum, Luke Bryan, Demi Lovato and Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puth.
Fergie will hold down the forte in Los Angeles at the Billboard Hollywood Party, which will feature performances from headliner One Direction, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, 5 Seconds of Summer, Alessia Cara, DNCE, Fall Out Boy, Andy Grammer, Ellie Goulding, Nick Jonas, Elle King, Tove Lo, OMI, Pentatonix, Rachel Platten, Nathan Sykes and Walk The Moon.
Jimmy Buffet fans will also be in for a treat when the hosts check in with him for a special live performance from his show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
Even though last year's guest Taylor Swift won't be at the event, she did offer Ryan and company a treat to ring in 2016. During the TV special, the video for the pop titan's "Out of the Woods" will premiere for the very first time.
Get those novelty 2016 glasses out because all the action goes down at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
