New Year is just around the corner and people are preparing for the upcoming year already. Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest is also going to be a sight this year. It will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest and a bunch of other people across the country.
The program has revealed the lineup for co-hosts of the night along with the celebrity performances that are going to perform that night. This year’s segment will also include a Disney twist.
East Coast Hosts
Ryan Seacrest from Live with Kelly and Ryan helmed the broadcast every year since 2006. This includes the 7 years before the founder and perennial host of the show, Dick Clarke passed away in 2012.
Ryan Seacrest will be back this year to count down to midnight and welcome the New Year in New York City’s Time Square. Seacrest will also be joined by famous YouTuber and host Liza Koshy from Manhattan.
Jessie James Decker will be the one who pulls out the winning Powerball numbers.
West Coast Hosts
On the West Coast, Ciara will be returning to host the New Year’s Rockin’ Eve post. However, this time there will be a twist!
Pre-taped portions will also be a part of her set. Those pre-taped portions will be from Disneyworld for the 100 Years of Wonder Celebration. The collaboration will be a great way to “commemorate the global impact of Disney’s storytelling, experiences, and fans and set the stage for the next 100 years of Disney magic.”
Los Angeles is also a hot stop for New Years Eve. DJ D-Nice will be co-hosting the LA countdown. From New Orleans, Billy Porter will be holding the fort down. He also hosted the same back in 2019.
Roselyn Sanchez will be taking the lead from Puerto Rico’s New Year’s Rockin Eve Fiestas.

Ryan Seacrest’s Streak
Ryan Seacrest will be hosting the show for the 18th consecutive year. He spoke about being able to learn from Dick before he passed away and said “Then there’s the amazing fortune I had to be his partner and learn from him — on-the-job training, which is something I never could have imagined.”
Seacrest always held Dick in high regard, he was like a mentor to him. “I idolized him from the start,” he said. He also admitted that “I was graced early on in my career with his generous advice and counsel.”
Recalling the good times, Seacrest said “When I joined his show in 2006, it was a dream come true to work with him every New Year’s Eve for the last six years.”
