Those “Twilight” ladies may have just kept her out of the top spot on our Woman of the Year list (don’t worry, she also made our Teen Queens Who Ruled 2008 list ), but it will be all about [artist id="2408193"]Miley Cyrus[/artist] come New Year’s eve. The tween mogul will help MTV close the door on this eventful year when she headlines “FNMTV Presents: A Miley-Sized Surprise … New Year’s Eve 2009.”
The show will air live from 8 p.m. till 9:30 p.m. ET with live performances from Cyrus, [artist id="2779430"]Metro Station[/artist], [artist id="2121977"]All Time Low[/artist], [artist id="1898553"]The Academy Is …[/artist] and [artist id="1748294"]Kevin Rudolf[/artist].
There will, of course, also be a live countdown from Times Square during a rebroadcast of the show at 10:30 p.m., but the real action will be broadcast from the house of one lucky fan, where host Cyrus will give a special performance in his/her bedroom. The “Hannah Montana” star will surprise the fan earlier in the day and spend the afternoon hanging out with them, visiting their friends and helping their favorite charity. Miley will also dropping some serious gifts and treats on the unsuspecting fan all through the evening, during which Metro Station will also set up in their bedroom, while the other artists will perform from MTV’s Times Square studio.
The show will be hosted from New York by twin Australian singers Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, a.k.a. the [artist id="1967806"]Veronicas[/artist]. All during the night, MTV and Pepsi will encourage viewers to type into a live text-to-screen dialogue about how they plan to refresh themselves and the world in 2009. People in Times Square can text NYE to 66333 to submit messages that may appear on MTV 44 1/2 (MTV’s high-definition Times Square screen), and TV viewers can text CHANGE to 66333 for the chance to see their comments appear on a crawl at the bottom of the television programming throughout MTV’s New Year’s Eve shows.
MTV will also upload select clips from NYE programming as mobile video to all carrier partners as well as photo galleries, MTV News coverage and Remote Control blog coverage on the MTV mobile Internet site at m.mtv.com.
MTV.com will feature photos, clips, and performances, including two performances from the night that won’t be seen anywhere else.
