Will anyone else be there?

The entertainment lineup for the evening may be set, but don’t think that’s the only thing you’ll get to see throughout the night. Last year, after performances by musical legend Neil Diamond and contemporary artists Maroon 5, Backstreet Boys, Flo Rida, Macklemore, and others. During the televised event, Steve Harvey even hosted a romantic surprise wedding.

In other words – there are bound to be even more surprises this year, too. On the FOX website, the network confirms that additional performers and celebrity appearances may be added as New Year’s Eve inches closer.
