You know about the famous ball that drops on New Year's Eve, but MTV has something a little different lined up for its big New Year's celebration this year. [url id="/shows/jersey_shore/season_2/series.jhtml"]"Jersey Shore"[/url] 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."
Of course, the pouf-haired firecracker won't be alone, as rapper Flo Rida will perform, comedian Whitney Cummings will host the proceedings and another "Jersey Shore" castmember, Pauly D, will serve as the night's DJ. It's all in the name of fun, as the special will take an irreverent look back at the year in music, television, Internet, relationships and more.
"I can't wait to host MTV's New Years Eve Bash!" Cummings said. "It's going to be so fun to party with the 'Jersey Shore' and rip on all things 2010. I'm gonna get some really good tweets."
Cummings and her crew will be joined by "Saturday Night Live" funnyman Bobby Moynihan, comedian Nick Kroll and Internet sensation Keenan Cahill. The special will debut live on MTV and MTV2 from MTV's Times Square Studio on December 31 at 10:30 p.m. ET (tape delay PT).
Of course, 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.
While Cummings will be hosting the show live from MTV's Times Square studios, the hosts of "The Seven," Kevin Manno and Julie Alexandria, will be reporting on the festivities down on street level, and the "Shore" kids will make sure to keep the crowd hyped.
The "Jersey Shore" gang also will unveil an exclusive sneak preview of the upcoming third season of the big show.
Don't miss "MTV New Year's Bash," starting at 10:30 p.m. ET on New Year's Eve!
