How to Watch ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest’ 2021 Edition

1

Did you really think we’d let 2020 slip by without a proper send-off? It’s time to carry on that New Year’s Eve tradition with the 49th annual Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve show. While we won’t be seeing any shots of a packed Times Square or the faces of tourists wearing 2021 glasses, the ball will still drop at midnight as we say so long to 2020.

Ryan Seacrest is back for his 16th year as host of the event, which will return to its New York City home but will be closed off to the public and only accessible through the live broadcast. This year, we can look forward to over five hours of performances with some of the biggest names in music this year, plus the reveal of the very first millionaire of 2021, a special appearance from President-Elect Joe Biden, and more as the whole country celebrates at the strike of midnight.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch.
