NEW YORK, Dec. 19 -- While Times Square will certainly have its share of New Year's Eve festivities counting down to 2009, MTV has teamed up with Miley Cyrus, one of music's biggest stars, to celebrate the year's end with one of the biggest parties of the year, "FNMTV Presents: A Miley-Sized Surprise...New Year's Eve 2009." The special will air live on Wednesday, December 31st from 8-9:30pm ET, with an encore presentation at 10:30pm ET featuring a live countdown from Times Square. Viewers will be treated to special live performances from Miley, who'll be hosting the show from the house of a lucky fan, and ringing in the New Year by congratulating someone who spent 2008 helping to better the lives of others.

After Miley surprises the lucky fan by showing up on her doorstep, they'll spend the day hanging out together, participating in activities for the fan's favorite charity, and visiting with friends. Along the way, Miley will be showering her with gifts and treats throughout the festivities. Let's just say it'll be a giant "Miley-sized" surprise like no other when the party begins, including performances by Miley from the winning fan's bedroom, another featuring Metro Station and more! We're talking total takeover here.

We'll keep the party going from MTV's Times Square studio, which will host performances from All Time Low, The Academy Is... and Kevin Rudolf. Emceeing from our studios will be Aussie twin duo Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, better known as The Veronicas, who will be on hand to interview the show's performers and revel in the night's festivities.

In addition, MTV and Pepsi are closing out the final hours of 2008 by engaging consumers in 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's HD Times Square Screen, MTV 44 1/2, and TV viewers can text CHANGE to 66333 for the chance that their comments will appear on a crawl at the bottom of the television programming throughout MTV's New Year's Eve shows. Beyond that, MTV will have 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 also feature photos, clips, and performances, including two performances from the night that won't be seen anywhere else. The broadcast of "FNMTV Presents: A Miley-Sized Surprise...New Year's Eve 2009" will be offered to over 100 MTV Radio Network Affiliates across the country exclusively by Westwood One.

"FNMTV Presents: A Miley-Sized Surprise...New Year's Eve 2009" is Executive Produced by Summer Strauch and Nancy McDonald. Matthew Parillo is Executive In Charge of Production for the special.
