Believe it or not, 2015 is almost here. That means Billboard’s star-studded New Year’s Eve extravaganza is coming, and the performers have just been announced.
Charli XCX, One Direction, Meghan Trainor, and Fergie will perform at the Billboard Hollywood Party on the evening of Dec. 31. Fergie will also host the So-Cal festivities for the ninth straight year, which will be broadcast as part of ABC’s New Year’s Eve telecast.
Most of the performers will be celebrating new albums along with the new year. Charli XCX’s hotly-anticipated sophomore LP Sucker will only be a few weeks old on New Year’s (it drops Dec. 12), One Direction’s Four drops Nov. 17, and Meghan Trainor’s major label debut, Title, will be out a couple weeks later on Jan. 13.
On the opposite coast, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest again finds Seacrest ringing in the New Year from Times Square with Jenny McCarthy. Just before the ball drops, Taylor Swift will perform live from New York City.
Down in Nashville, Lady Antebellum and Gavin DeGraw will perform live from Music City’s New Year’s Eve Bash on Broadway in downtown Nashville.
The festivities begin live at 8 p.m. (ET) on ABC. Start making your plans now! [Source]
