CHARLI XCX, FERGIE, ONE DIRECTION AND MEGHAN TRAINOR JOIN THE BILLBOARD HOLLYWOOD PARTY FOR THE "NEW YEAR'S ROCKIN' EVE" LINEUP

FERGIE AND JENNY MCCARTHY RETURN AS CO-HOSTS

"Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2015" Begins Live at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC from New York's Times Square

Charli XCX, One Direction and Meghan Trainor join the biggest bi-coastal celebration of the year with performances on New Year's Eve from the Billboard Hollywood Party. One Direction will headline with four performances throughout the night. Fergie returns for the ninth year to host the Billboard Hollywood Party and will treat the audience to a special performance. Jenny McCarthy returns for the fourth time live from Times Square. "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2015" will air on WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 31 beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Television Network.

The bi-coastal celebration will include hours of special performances and reports on New Year's celebrations from around the globe. Ryan Seacrest will lead the traditional countdown to midnight, and before the ball drops on New Year's Eve, global music sensation Taylor Swift will perform live for more than one million fans in Times Square. Gavin DeGraw and Lady Antebellum will perform live from Music City's New Year's Eve Bash on Broadway in downtown Nashville.

London-based singer and songwriter Charli XCX is quickly proving an unqualified phenomenon with her edgy, yet addictive approach. Since her first critically-acclaimed track, "Nuclear Seasons" in 2011, the 22-year-old, Charlotte Aitchison, co-wrote the No. 1 smash single with Iggy Azalea, "Fancy," and penned last year's double platinum summer it-song, "I Love It" recorded by Icona Pop, which she is featured on. Most recently, Charli XCX released the platinum selling "Boom Clap" single from the 'The Fault in Our Stars: Music From the Motion Picture' soundtrack, landing the No. 1 spot on Top 40 radio along, with a brand new song, "Break The Rules" from her forthcoming sophomore studio album, "SUCKER" arriving December 15 via Neon Gold/Atlantic Records.

Fergie's newest single, "L.A.Love (la la)," marks her return to music following her 2006 solo album The Dutchess, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 and spent 94 weeks on the chart. The album went on to sell 6.2 million copies and 28.5 million tracks worldwide and spawned three No. 1 hits on the Hot 100: "London Bridge," "Glamorous," and "Big Girls Don't Cry," as well as the Top 5 singles "Fergalicious" and "Clumsy." Since The Dutchess' release, Fergie has also released two multi-Platinum albums, The E.N.D. and The Beginning, with The Black Eyed Peas - with whom she has sold 31 million albums and 58 million singles worldwide. The Black Eyed Peas' videos have been viewed over 1.8 billion times on their YouTube channel.

With a staggering 94 number ones and over 46 million records sold, in just four short years, One Direction have gone from energetic pop upstarts to international superstars. As the band's song writing becomes more personal with each record, FOUR is set to be their most stunning yet. The album follows the global success of their huge sell out WHERE WE ARE stadium tour and the 3D film documentary THIS IS US. Fans also had the opportunity to relive this summers' tour with the release of their second film WHERE WE ARE: THE CONCERT FILM, which broke records as the biggest ever Event Cinema audience across one weekend. The WHERE WE ARE: THE CONCERT FILM DVD will be released on December 2. Add all this to their 3 billion YouTube views, 109 million combined Twitter followers and 33 million Facebook fans, and it's clear that Liam, Harry, Louis, Niall and Zayn genuinely are a worldwide phenomenon.

Meghan Trainor has quickly become one of the biggest breakout pop stars this year with her multi-platinum debut "All About That Bass," which captured the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart for eight consecutive weeks. The positive body-image anthem also spent three weeks at No. 1 at Top 40 radio, eight weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. Shazam chart, and reached No. 1 globally on Spotify. Follow up single "Lips Are Movin" is quickly following the footsteps of "All About That Bass" and is rocketing up the charts. Trainor's hotly anticipated full-length debut Title [Epic Records] (pre-order) hits shelves on January 13th just prior to the launch of her just-announced "THAT BASS" North American headlining tour. Trainor is a 2014 American Music Award nominee for "New Artist of the Year" and is also up for two People's Choice awards and LOGO a New Next Now award.

"Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2015" is produced by dick clark productions with Ryan Seacrest, Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan serving as executive producers, and Barry Adelman and Mark Bracco are co-executive producers. Larry Klein is producer.
