Ready to say goodbye to 2016? The livestream of the Times Square ball drop and New Year’s Eve party is posted above for your viewing pleasure.
New York City’s tradition of dropping the ball in Times Square on New Year’s
Of course, you can also watch the ball drop on TV. The ball drop will be televised, as always, this year on ABC (live feed), NBC (live feed), CNN (live feed) and Fox News (live feed), each bringing their own wrinkles to the night, like ABC’s “New Year’s Rockin’
The night’s performances around the ball drop will include timeless divas Mariah Carey and Gloria Estefan take the stage, along with Don Omar, Gavin DeGraw, Rachel Platten and Silento. You will also be able to view those through the stream we’ve embedded.
The entirety of Times Square will be roped off for this year’s events, which will be hosted by Spotify’s Global Head of Rock and TV personality Allison Hagendorf, as well as the Food Network’s Jonathan Bennett (who you may best remember as Aaron Samuels in “Mean Girls”).
At 11 p.m. the feed will broadcast a message from outgoing First Lady Michelle Obama. Other guests and countdown correspondents include CNN’s Anderson Cooper and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who will count down the final 60 seconds before 2017 with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
The various networks’ coverage can also be streamed through their respective live feeds.
