Your last few hours of 2013 just got a lot more musical.

EW has learned exclusively that ABC has added four performers to the roster for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014. Capital Cities, Daughtry, Ariana Grande, and The Fray are all hitting the stage at the West Coast party, which will be hosted by Fergie. They join previously scheduled performers Jason Derülo, Fall Out Boy, Florida Georgia Line, Jennifer Hudson, Enrique Iglesias, and Robin Thicke.

Seacrest in! Extends deal to host 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve'

Ryan Seacrest has signed a multi-year deal to continue to host and executive produce Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.

The wunderkind of all things hosting has been involved with the New Year’s program since 2005 and became the sole host for the first time last year, after Dick Clark’s passing in April 2012. The 2013 broadcast was the most-watched New Year’s special ever, bringing in 22.6 million viewers.

Dick Clark Production announced the multi-year deal today, though they did not elaborate on exactly how many years that would span. The show’s lengthy (and apostrophe-filled) title seems likely to stay the same as a tribute to its original host. The show will continue to be broadcast on Dec. 31 on ABC.

In the announcement of his extended deal, Seacrest said, “I think I will forever be both sentimental and grateful about my experiences with Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.” Of his fellow executive producer, Allen Shapiro, and the Dick Clark Productions team, he said, “I’m humbled by their continued faith, and excited to work together to create new traditions and fun moments on the show that only live television can deliver.”

Snooki and Jwoww to ring in MTV's New Year

New York’s Times Square is getting a little bit Jersey for New Year’s Eve.

MTV says Jersey Shore stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley and comedian Jeff Dye will host the network’s live New Year’s Eve special from Times Square.

MTV’s Club NYE 2013 will also feature performances from Ke$ha, Ne-Yo, Sean Kingston, Rita Ora, and others. Ke$ha described the final night of the year as a time when people come together to celebrate “in a sweaty, drunken, dance-fueled orgy of bliss.”

Polizzi said she is hoping to use “a leopard bedazzled microphone” for her hosting duties.

The special is set to air at 11 p.m. Eastern on Dec. 31.
