Ella Mai is set to perform during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2021 and is performing from the Hollywood Party alongside previously announced West Coast performers Nelly, Miley Cyrus, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat and Maluma!
Ryan Seacrest returns as host to help ring in the New Year with Lucy Hale, Billy Porter and Ciara.
This year marks the 49th anniversary of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, America’s most-watched annual New Year’s tradition which celebrates the year’s very best in music. The show sets the stage to ring in the new year with more than five and a half hours of dynamic performances airing until 2AM and gives viewers a look at New Year’s celebrations from around the globe.
After a challenging 2020, this year’s show will focus on bringing viewers messages of hope and unity throughout the night filled with spectacular performances as we turn a new page to 2021.
As previously announced, Jennifer Lopez will headline from Times Square, performing minutes before the iconic ball drop, joined by additional performers Billy Porter, Cyndi Lauper and Jimmie Allen. Porter and Lauper, who worked together on the Broadway hit Kinky Boots, will reunite for a duet performance.
Fun fact? This will be Seacrest's 16th year as host!
The countdown to 2021 kicks off on ABC at 8/7c on December 31. The celebrations will be closed to the public this year given the global COVID-19 pandemic and socially safe distance guidelines.
