Phillip Phillips, Carmen Electra And Lifehouse Headline Fox's New Year's Eve Live!
Fox is finally getting its act together with its New Year’s Eve programming event. Called New Year’s Eve Live!, this year’s event will be broadcast from the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Like most of the other networks, Fox’s program will also boast a slew of singing talent, although New Year’s Eve Live! won’t be as impressive as a few of the other shows.
Over at ABC, New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest will feature some of today’s biggest names, including Taylor Swift and Carly Rae Jepson. While ABC seems to be throwing oodles and gobs of money into its New Year’s programming, Fox seems to be taking the opposite approach with the night, and will be spending money a little more conservatively. Still, the 2011 American Idol winner, Phillip Phillips, will be part of New Year’s Eve Live!’s lineup, and I’m sure fans will get to hear the young man’s hit single, “Home.”
After Phillip Phillips, the lineup gets weird, however. Lifehouse is slated to perform. While I wouldn’t mind hearing such classic hits as “Hanging by a Moment” and “You and Me,” the band will also probably play tracks from its upcoming album, Almeria, which is out next Tuesday. Carmen Electra will also be part of New Year’s Eve Live!. She won’t be hosting, however, as one might assume. She’s also set to perform musically. It sounds like a perfectly oddball night for a perfectly oddball Vegas crowd.
New Years Live! will air Monday, December 31 from 11 to 12:30 a.m. ET. Elsewhere, the event will be tape delayed.
