NBC managed to score a live performance from Sir Elton John for their New Years Eve special, titled New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly. Elton John won’t be flying across the pond to rock out in the middle of Times Square. Instead, the performance will air via Satellite from John’s Live New Year’s Eve concert at London’s 02 Arena.
According to NBC, “NBC's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly has added an exclusive performance from rock superstar Elton John. John will join an impressive line-up of Grammy-winning and nominated performers on this year's show, and will perform his iconic hit "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me." The unprecedented combination of Elton John, Katy Perry, Ludacris, The Ting Tings, and T.I. gives NBC a musical line-up with universal appeal not found anywhere else on New Year's Eve.
With all of the announcements coming out about which artists are performing on various New Year’s Eve TV specials, it’s going to be difficult to pick a channel and stick with it.
NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly will air Wednesday, December 31 on NBC (10-11 p.m.; 11:35 p.m.-12:35 a.m.).
