It’s time to ring in the new year and leave 2022 behind us.
Whether you are attending a fancy New Year’s Eve party or watching from the comfort of your own home, there are several programs you can watch with friends and loved ones to help ring in 2023 in style.
If you’re looking for a no-frills way to monitor New York City’s drop of the legendary Waterford Crystal ball — as well as fireworks in Times Square at the stroke of midnight — the event will stream online commercial-free for 6½ hours, starting at 6 p.m. EST via the Times Square site.
From the Cyrus family progeny who will swing in like a wrecking ball to demolish 2022 with “Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party” all the way to the iconic “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest,” here is a roundup of all the ways you can celebrate the arrival of 2023.
‘Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party’
“Hannah Montana” star Miley Cyrus returns for a second time in a row to ring in the new year alongside her godmother and country star icon Dolly Parton in a livestream from Miami, available on NBC’s Peacock app and on NBC.
The show is slated to go live at 10:39 p.m. EST and run all the way to 12:30 a.m.
“The inaugural ‘Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party’ was an unqualified success and we know this year’s show will be just as spectacular, with plenty of surprises and lots of fun. We can’t wait to get the party started,” said Jen Neal, executive vice president of NBCUniversal, in a press release.
Performers include Sia, Fletcher, Liily, Latto, Rae Sremmurd and more, with appearances by “Saturday Night Live” stars Chloe Fineman, Sarah Sherman and comedy trio Please Don’t Destroy.
‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest‘
Ryan Seacrest returns on ABC’s “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” and will start the party around 8 p.m.
The iconic NYC-based party will feature performances by Duran Duran, J-hope, Jax and New Edition in Times Square, along with several high-profile guests including YouTuber Liza Koshy and singer Jessie James Decker.
Tony-, Emmy- and Grammy-winner Billy Porter will join Seacrest from New Orleans, and singer Ciara will join in on the fun from Disneyland.
Also performing from the West Coast venue will be Aly & AJ, Bailey Zimmerman, Ben Platt, Fitz and the Tantrums, Halle Bailey, Lauren Spencer-Smith, Maddie & Tae, Shaggy and TXT.
D-Nice will co-host from Los Angeles and feature stars such as Armani White, Betty Who, Dove Cameron, Finneas, Nicky Youre and Wiz Khalifa.
In addition, former Miss Universe winner Dayanara Torres will lead a Spanish-language countdown from Puerto Rico with Puerto Rican singer and rapper Farruko on-hand for a performance.
CNN’s ‘New Year’s Eve Live‘
Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper are back — and apparently not allowed to drink — for their own New Year’s Eve party.
CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live” will cover the famed ball drop in New York — with remote drop-ins by correspondents and special guests from several other US cities — starting at 8 p.m. and ending around 1 a.m.
The show will feature performances and appearances by Usher, Kevin Hart, Ellie Goulding, Patti LaBelle, REO Speedwagon, Nick Cannon, Jenifer Lewis, John Stamos, Tenacious D’s Jack Black and Kyle Gass, Jean Smart, Cheri Oteri, Ava Max and many more.
The show is known for its controversial moments, including last year’s tirade by Cohen, 54, who took shots at former NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, saying he was the “crappiest” mayor in city history.
Despite the rule regarding alcohol, Cohen vowed on an episode of “Watch What Happens Live!” that he and Cooper will “party harder than we have partied before.”
‘Jack Daniel’s New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash‘
The Nashville-based New Year’s Eve party returns with a two-part celebration beginning at 8 p.m. and strumming along until 10 p.m. EST, and then resuming with the second half from 10:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. EST.
Brooks & Dunn, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, the Zac Brown Band and other country stars will headline the celebration.
“Nashville’s Big Bash” will stream on Paramount+ and CBS.
Fox News Channel’s ‘All-American New Year 2023’
Fox News will host its own special — “All-American New Year 2023” — starting at 10 p.m. EST and wrapping up the party at 1:30 a.m.
The show will feature Fox News personalities including Will Cain, Rachel Campos-Duffy and Pete Hegseth, plus music from country star Brantley Gilbert.
Prior to the main event, Jimmy Failla, Emily Compagno and correspondent Griff Jenkins will lead an hour-long pre-show called “Countdown to All-American New Year.”
Telemundo’s ‘Bienvenido 2023’
The Spanish-language network will welcome 2023 from Times Square — featuring network stars Jacqueline Bracamontes, Chiky Bombom and Nacho Lozano — with help from Emmy-winner Alix Aspe in Miami and Miss Universe 2020 Andrea Meza and personality Carlos Adyan in San Antonio, along with musical performances by Ana Bárbara, Gente de Zona, Joss Favela, Luis Figueroa, Manuel Turizo, Natalia Jiménez, Pablo Alborán, Pablo Montero, Silvestre Dangond and Zion & Lennox.
