As for the East Coast, Lucy Hale, who previously served as host in New Orleans, will join host Ryan Seacrest in Times Square this year. 

"As we ring in a new decade and my 15th year hosting the show, I’m so excited to welcome the talented Lucy Hale to the stage with me,” Seacrest said in a statement. "It’s going to be a powerhouse year with Billy and Ciara and we can’t wait to celebrate with everyone!"

"Hosting New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest has become something I look forward to every year and now my friend Lucy Hale and Billy Porter have joined the family, so the party just leveled up!" Ciara echoed Seacrest's excitement in her statement. "I am going to be performing my new song 'Melanin,' so I hope all my melanin kings and queens tune in to rock out with me and the amazing line-up of performers this year."

This year's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve marks the 48th anniversary of the telecast, and will include more than five hours of special performances and reports on New Year's festivities from around the globe.
