Mariah Carey to Perform Live from Times Square on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2006," December 31 on Abc

[via press release from ABC]


No. 1 Artist of 2005 Makes History by Becoming First Singer to Perform Live from New York on the Program Since the Show�s Inception 34 Years Ago

History will be made when international superstar Mariah Carey performs live from Times Square on �Dick Clark�s New Year�s Rockin� Eve 2006,� SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31 on the ABC Television Network. Her performance will mark the first time in the 34-year history of the program that a singer will perform from the famed New York landmark, before nearly a million fans in Times Square and millions more across the nation. Ms. Carey will join hosts Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest as the final minutes of the year are counted down, climaxed by the traditional ball drop.

What a way to cap off an amazing year! This year�s eight-time Grammy Award nominee, Mariah Carey is riding high on the success of her five-times RIAA platinum album, �The Emancipation of Mimi,� which has sold more than seven million copies around the world and spun off three smash hit No. 1 singles -- �We Belong Together,� �Shake It Off� and �Don't Forget About Us.� In early September, Mariah made music history when she became the first female lead artist in the 47 years of the Billboard Hot 100 ever to occupy the No. 1 and No. 2 chart positions in the same week, with �We Belong Together� and �Shake It Off,� respectively. With 16 No. 1 career singles to her credit, Mariah is the only active artist with the hit-making potential to match or surpass the all-time records of the Beatles (with 20 No. 1�s) and Elvis Presley (18 No. 1�s).

Also appearing on the show is actress/recording star Hilary Duff who will preside over segments of the show from Hollywood and introduce top recording artists The Bangles, Chris Brown, Sean Paul, The Pussycat Dolls, Sugarland, 3 Doors Down and 311. Duff will also perform. Additionally, �Good Morning America Weekend�s� Marysol Castro will report on other happenings in and around NYC.
