If you are looking for something a little younger and more hip for New Year’s Eve than Dick Clark’s star-studded spectacular that features guests like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm], then turn your attention to MTV’s New Year’s extravaganza.
The MTV show will feature performances by up and coming young stars, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]J. Cole[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mac Miller[/lastfm],[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Jason Derulo[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Selena Gomez[/lastfm] and perhaps even by host, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Demi Lovato[/lastfm].
[photogallerylink id=130453 align=right]Both J. Cole and Mac Miller have broken their personal bests in regards to record sales, each topping the album charts at different times this past year. While Cole recently reached the Gold mark on his album and lead single, “Work Out,” Miller was busy setting the indie standard when his debut album, Blue Slide Park, sold more than indie artist since 1995.
MTV touts their upcoming show as “the party of year. LIVE on MTV.”
“As another year comes to a close,” they write “we’re preparing to blast into 2012 with an explosive night of musical performances, special guests, and plenty of surprises,” according to MTV’s site.
Likely guests include the cast of their new shows (and old, a la Jersey Shore). AMP artists galore are expected to attend.
This year’s show also asks viewers to cast their votes for their Favorite Song of 2011 starting Wednesday December 15th and goes through December 29th.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, usher in the new year with MTV, if not Dick Clark is only a click away. And for the New Years pros, just watch both!
“Can’t Get Enough” by J. Cole ft. Trey Songz
