In the television special’s nearly 50-year history, this will mark the first time a live audience will not be allowed in Times Square to watch the ball drop at midnight, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But that’s not stopping the clock from ticking or the stars from singing in celebration of closing this chapter of 2020 and starting a new one in 2021.
“One thing that will never change is the ticking of time and the arrival of a New Year at midnight on December 31st,” Tim Tompkins, president of the Times Square Alliance, said in a press release. “But this year there will be significantly new and enhanced virtual, visual and digital offerings to complement whatever limited live entertainment or experiences — still in development — will take place in Times Square.”
Jennifer Lopez, Machine Gun Kelly, Porter, Cyndi Lauper and Jimmie Allen will ring in the new year with performances in the heart of NYC, with Lopez as the headlining act singing just minutes before the ball drops. On the opposite coast, Brandy, Doja Cat, Ella Mai, Lewis Capaldi, Maluma, Megan Thee Stallion, Miley Cyrus, Nelly and Saweetie will perform live in LA, with Ciara hosting for a fourth year in a row.
