Ryan Seacrest will host the primetime festivities and lead the traditional countdown to midnight from Times Square in New York City, as he has for the last 13 years, with live onsite reporting from actress and comedian Jenny McCarthy. Multi-platinum music superstar Ciara will ring in the New Year from the West Coast as the host of the Hollywood Party, joined by performances from Kelsea Ballerini, The Chainsmokers, Foster the People, Dua Lipa, Ella Mai and Charlie Puth, as well as collaborations from Macklemore with Skylar Grey presented by Planet Fitness and The Chainsmokers featuring Kelsea Ballerini.

Post Malone stirs a mix of genres into his own sonic sound that’s both intoxicating and invigorating. His RIAA Platinum certified debut album, Stoney, led the genre-bending Dallas, TX artist to his first Top 10 on the Billboard 200 and first #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. In 2018, his sophomore album, beerbongs & bentleys, debuted on the Billboard 200 at #1 and achieved one of the year’s biggest streaming weeks ever for an album. Concurrent with beerbongs’ No. 1 debut, Post charted a then-record nine songs simultaneously in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. The same week, he also set a then-record for the most simultaneous Top 40 Hot 100 hits with 14. Additionally, Post Malone charted in over 30 countries on the YouTube Charts. More recently, Post Malone won Best Pop/Rock Male Artist and Best Rap/Hip-Hop Album at the American Music Awards of 2018.
