New York City’s annual Times Square ball drop is attended by at least 2 million spectators in celebration of the new year. The festivities will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest and will include more than five hours of special performances by Mariah Carey, Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan and more.
