It is an event that has become a national tradition. People wait all year long to check out the lineup of entertainment presented by Ryan Seacrest for New Year’s Rockin Eve. This year is going to be full of fabulous entertainment and surprises as we all celebrate the New Year, 2019 and watch the famous ball drop at the stroke of midnight.
Christina Aguilera Is This Year’s Headliner
One of the most famous names in music is the headline act for this year’s event. Christina Aguilera brings her musical act to the highly anticipated yearly event. She is scheduled to perform just before the ball drops to welcome in 2019. This will be the first time she has performed for New Year’s Rockin Eve since she appeared in 2007.
A Star-Studded Lineup
Naturally, everyone expects the New Year’s Rockin Eve celebration to feature the biggest names in entertainment, and this year is right on track. Some of the most anticipated performances will come from Ciara, Shawn Mendez, Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina, and many more. There are celebrations happening in a few different cities to celebrate the different time zones welcoming in the new year. There is, of course, the New York celebration, but after the ball drops there, there will be celebrations in New Orleans and Hollywood.
In addition to the regular lineup, Post Malone will be performing from a stop in Brooklyn, New York during his tour. The hosts this year include Ryan Seacrest, Jenny McCarthy, and Lucy Hale. McCarthy will be in the crowd in Times Square reporting on the activities and revelry, while Lucy Hale will be reporting from the Allstate Fan Fest occurring in New Orleans.
A Favorite National New Year’s Tradition
New Year’s Rockin Eve was hosted and created by celebrity Dick Clark from 1972 until 2012 when he was forced to pass on the torch to the current host Ryan Seacrest. Dick Clark was the Host of American Bandstand and was also the host of the Weekly Top Forty. Today, the program is one of the most celebrated and watched events for television throughout the year.
