Celebrity New Year’s Eve Parties 2017: Where Are Stars Ringing In New Year?
It’s New Year’s Eve, and celebrities are hitting the town to celebrate. Find out where your favorite stars are ringing in 2017 below!
When the ball drops in Times Square, a number of big stars will be on hand. Ryan Seacrest and Carson Daly are hosting their respective ABC and NBC TV specials live from the iconic Manhattan spot, with Mariah Carey, Thomas Rhett, Pentatonix and more set to perform. Also in New York City once again will be Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin, who are overseeing the festivities broadcast on CNN.
Next to Times Square, the most popular spot to welcome the New Year is probably the Las Vegas strip. Sin City has lined up a slew of high-profile performers and deejays to ensure every hotel, casino, and night club will be packed to the brim. Drake, for instance, is holding court at the Hakkasan nightclub inside the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.
Kendrick Lamar is taking over Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub at the Cromwell Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, while Calvin Harris will be at Caesar’s Palace’s Omnia night club, where he has a residency. French Montana and DJ Khaled are sharing duties at Tao in the Venetian Hotel & Casino. And Ludacris will light up Mandalay Bay.
Others scheduled to be nearby include DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, and Major Lazer. But it’s won’t be all rap, hip-hop and EDM music in Vegas. Maroon 5 will also be at Mandalay Bay, while Bruno Mars is slated to party at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is trading Nevada for Florida. After celebrating last year at Drai’s, she’ll be hanging at E11even in Miami this time, replacing Jennifer Lopez, who canceled days ago.
Justin Bieber is setting up shop at the Fontainebleau, while collaborator Skrillex will be at Liv. The Roots will be in Miami, too, and Pitbull is gathering friends like Snoop Dogg and Queen Latifah at Bayfront Park. Their party will air on FOX as part of “Pitbull’s New Year’s Resolution.” And Lucy Hale will be in New Orleans with Jason Derulo, and their party will feed into Seacrest’s “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” broadcast.
Other stars are going international. Chrissy Teigen will be by John Legend’s side as he hosts a show in St. Barts. And Demi Lovato will be performing from a Celebrity Cruise ship in St. Maarten. The performance will air on TV as part of “Rockin’ Eve.” Gossip Cop has a feeling it’ll be a pretty rockin’ time for everyone, though, no matter where they are.
