MARIAH CAREY, BLAKE SHELTON TO PERFORM ON "NEW YEAR'S EVE WITH CARSON DALY"

Jane Lynch Named Co-Host with Natasha Leggero and Anthony Anderson to Appear as Guests on Annual Two-Part Special From Times Square

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - Dec. 30, 2013 - Mariah Carey and "The Voice" coach and Grammy Award nominee Blake Shelton are set to perform on NBC's annual special "New Year's Eve With Carson Daly."

Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Jane Lynch will co-host, with actress-comedian Natasha Leggero and actor Anthony Anderson appearing as guests.

The two-part special takes place from Times Square and will air Tuesday, Dec. 31 at 10-11 p.m. ET/PT and 11:30 p.m.-12:30 a.m.Daly will be hosting NBC's New Year's Eve celebration for the ninth consecutive year.

Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold to date and eighteen Billboard #1 singles (seventeen self-penned), more than any solo artist in history. With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Carey has defined the modern pop performance. As a singer/songwriter/producer, she has been recognized with five Grammy Awards, 21 American Music Awards, Billboard's "Artist of the Decade" Award, the World Music Award for "World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium," and BMI's "Icon Award" for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few.

Shelton is currently a coach on NBC's Emmy Award-winning musical-competition series "The Voice." Blake recently was awarded CMA Awards' Album of the Year honor for his platinum-selling album "Based on a True Story...," and was named Male Vocalist of the Year for the fourth consecutive year.

Just off the heels of his multi-week No. 1 smash hit, "Boys 'Round Here," the follow-up single "Mine Would Be You" raced to the top of the charts to mark his 15th No. 1 (10th consecutive) single. "Mine Would Be You" has topped the charts for the last three weeks, making it one of the longest-charting country singles of 2013. Blake has earned a host of other awards and nominations, including multiple Grammy nominations, six gold and platinum albums, and is the three-time host of the ACM Awards.

Lynch serves as host of NBC's "Hollywood Game Night," inspired by the raucous game nights at executive producer Sean Hayes' own home. Lynch cut her theatrical teeth at the Second City, Steppenwolf Theatre and in many church basements all over the greater Chicago area.

Lynch can currently be seen in the Ryan Murphy television series "Glee," for which she is an Emmy and Golden Globe winner for portraying the iconic character Sue Sylvester. Some of her other TV credits include "Party Down," "Lovespring International" "Desperate Housewives," "Weeds," "The L Word," "Two and a Half Men," "Criminal Minds" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine."

Leggero has appeared in dozens of TV series and specials. Among the shows she has had a co-starring role are "Suburgatory," "Brickleberry," "Arrested Development," "Community" and "Burning Love." She also is often featured on Comedy Central's celebrity roasts.

Anderson has appeared in several films ("Hustle & Flow," "The Departed," "Barbershop") and dozens of television series, including "Treme," "Law & Order" and "The Shield."

Daly and John Irwin will serve as executive producers. Stewart Bailey is co-executive producer.
