You’ve heard of a ball drop on New Year’s Eve, but MTV has something a little different lined up for its big New Year’s Eve celebration this year. “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will climb into a ball that will be lowered into New York’s Times Square to help ring in 2011 at the “MTV New Year’s Bash.”
She, of course, won’t be alone, as rapper [artist id=”2583152″]Flo Rida[/artist] will perform and host comedian Whitney Cummings and another “Jersey” castmember, Pauly D, who will serve as the night’s DJ.
It wouldn’t be a New Year’s celebration without some serious fist-pumping, so the “Jersey Shore” castmembers will lead the crowd in a fist-pumping frenzy in an attempt to break a Guinness World Record.
In addition to two songs from Flo Rida, the live, hour-long show will feature a celebration of the top entertainment stories of the year, with comedians and celebrities offering their own unique takes on the music, TV shows, Internet happenings, relationships and, yes, douche bags who made 2010 an unforgettable year.
While Cummings will be hosting the show live from the MTV studios in Times Square, the hosts of “The Seven,” Kevin Manno and Julie Alexandria, will be reporting on the festivities down below, and the “Shore” kids will make sure to keep the crowd hyped.
They will also be on hand to unveil an exclusive sneak preview of the upcoming third season of the “Shore” during the NYE special, which kicks off at 10:30 p.m. ET.
Don’t miss “MTV New Year’s Bash,” starting at 10:30 p.m. ET on New Year’s Eve!
