Dick Clark Productions and ABC announced that BTS will be performing live at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest on December 31st. The South Korean septet, comprised of V, SUGA, Jin, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, and Jungkook, will be performing alongside event headliner Post Malone, Sam Hunt, Alanis Morissette, and the cast of the Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill.
With YouTube sponsoring the event, Rockin’ Eve will also highlight the biggest YouTube trends of the decade.
“We are so lucky to have Post Malone performing for the world right before the iconic ball drop,” Mark Bracco, executive producer and executive vice president of programming and development for Dick Clark Productions, said in a statement. “Add to that superstars like BTS, Sam Hunt and Alanis Morrissette, and it promises to be a memorable New Year’s Eve in Times Square.”
This isn’t the first time BTS has participated in the annual New Year’s Eve program. In 2017, while they were in Hollywood, the group pre-recorded their performances of Mic Drop and DNA for the event, which aired during the countdown show going into 2018. That made BTS the first South Korean group to appear on the iconic show.
Unfortunately for BTS’ ARMY in South Korea, the group’s appearance at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve will prevent them from attending Gayo Daejejun, the annual year-end event of the South Korean broadcaster MBC.
Besides Seacrest, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve will also be hosted by Lucy Hale. The 5 ½-hour show will air live on December 31st, starting at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
BTS’ official time slot in the program has not been confirmed yet.
