We know, we know…we haven’t even had a chance to celebrate Christmas and we’re already moving on to New Year’s Eve!

But as many of you may know, our morning show guru Carson hosts the big NBC New Year’s Eve special in NYC every year and he’s got a solid lineup of guests ready to ring in 2012 with him!

This year, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Drake[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cee Lo Green[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Tony Bennett[/lastfm] are swinging by and that’s not all!

It’ll be a mini-Voice reunion with not only Cee Lo, but also coach [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Blake Shelton[/lastfm] in attendance at Times Square.

Late night host [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jimmy Fallon[/lastfm] and British pop star [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jessie J[/lastfm] will brave the East Coast chill to take part in the festivities too.

But wait…there’s more! There will also be special appearances by news anchor Brian Williams, sports guru Bob Costas, and the hilarious Ricky Gervais.

Sounds like boss man Daly is excited for the big night. He shared:

There is no better place to be in the world on New Year’s Eve than in Times Square. I look forward to this night all year — to ring in the New Year with millions of people across the country — it’s a blast!

Carson will be live tweeting the whole time, so follow him on Twitter at @carsonjdaly to get behind-the-scenes access. Better yet, you can join in on the fun yourself by using the hashtag #NBCNYE.

Tune into NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly starting at 10pm on December 31st for all the action!

Personally, we can’t wait to see [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Drake[/lastfm] take the stage! Swoon!
