SIR ELTON JOHN TO PERFORM ON 'NBC'S NEW YEAR'S EVE WTH CARSON DALY'

John Will Perform Via Satellite From His Live New Year's Eve Concert at London's 02 Arena

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 22, 2008 - NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly has added an exclusive performance from rock superstar Elton John. John will join an impressive line-up of Grammy-winning and nominated performers on this year's show, and will perform his iconic hit "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me." The unprecedented combination of Elton John, Katy Perry, Ludacris, The Ting Tings, and T.I. gives NBC a musical line-up with universal appeal not found anywhere else on New Year's Eve.

Elton John has been wowing audiences with his Red Piano show in Las Vegas since 2004 and Elton John's New Year's Eve Party will see him perform his greatest hits live from the 02 arena in London. The show has been conceptualized and designed by acclaimed photographer and good friend of John, David LaChapelle. It's a visual masterpiece that expresses the very best times, and very worst times in John's life, making it a personal journey for both him and his legions of fans. The performance will also be shown live on ITV1 in the UK in conjunction with Whizz Kid Entertainment.

John, who has just finished his UK tour of the Red Piano and will return to Las Vegas early in the New Year, said: "I can't wait to spend New Year's Eve with my biggest fans in America and the UK. This will be a fantastic night. I can't think of a better way to see in 2009."

The fifth annual live NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly will for the first time broadcast beginning in primetime from 10-11 p.m. (ET) and continue in late night from 11:30 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. all in high definition. In addition to the musical lineup, Daly will have help bringing the celebration to the home audience with Saturday Today co-anchor Amy Robach, veteran "NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly" correspondent Alison Stewart and NBC News correspondent Luke Russert giving live reports from Times Square.

In 2007, 8 million viewers tuned in to watch "NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly." It was the highest rated NBC New Year's Eve special in six years, continuing the yearly upward trend for the special.

"NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly" is executive-produced by Daly ("Last Call with Carson Daly") and David Friedman ("Last Call with Carson Daly") through Universal Media Studios. Guy Oseary ("Last Call with Carson Daly") also serves as co-executive producer.

"NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly" will be followed by an encore telecast of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" followed by "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" starting at 12:30 a.m.
