Miley Cyrus and Pete Davidson will ring in the new year with a two-hour special airing on NBC and Peacock.
Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party Hosted By Miley Cyrus and Pete Davidson will air live from Miami, Florida, beginning at 10:30 p.m. ET on December 31st.
Joining Cyrus and Davidson will be a “star-studded lineup of special guests and musical performances,” with more details to be revealed in the future. Update – December 20th: Brandi Carlile, Billy Joe Armstrong, Saweetie, Jack Harlow, and 24kGoldn are among the confirmed participants.
The special is being executed produced by Saturday Night Live head Lorne Michaels, which suggests there may be more of a scripted comedy element than traditional NYE programming. Joe DeMaio (whose credits include the MTV VMAs and Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill) has been tagged as the evening’s director.
Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party replaces Carson Daly’s long-running New Year’s Eve special, which he had hosted on NBC since 2004.
Other New Year’s Eve television programming includes ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, which will be hosted by Ryan Seacrest and headlined by Jennifer Lopez, and CBS’s New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash featuring Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. FOX and CNN are also expected to televise specials hosted by Steve Harvey and Anderson Cooper, respectively, though details on the two broadcast have not yet been announced.
