[via press release from FOX]


Special Performances by Hoobastank and Evanescence

In an exclusive World Broadcast Premiere ONLY seen on FOX, multi-platinum artist Usher, who walked away with 11 Billboard Music Awards last week including "Artist of the Year," unveils his new mini-movie "Caught Up" during the network's annual New Year's Eve special. Usher's never-before-seen 20-minute mini-movie will feature four of his hits, including "Seduction," "Caught Up," "Red Light" and "Take Your Hands," and a cameo by AMERICAN IDOL's Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest returns for his third time as host and first time as executive producer of NEW YEAR'S EVE: LIVE FROM TIMES SQUARE WITH RYAN SEACREST, live from the future home of the Hard Rock Cafe New York. This year Seacrest takes the party to the Big Apple, interviewing celebrities and musical acts from one of the hottest parties in Times Square, as well as reviewing the nation's favorite songs from "America's Top 40." The special will also feature performances by Hoobastank and Evanescence. Tune in to NEW YEAR'S EVE: LIVE FROM TIMES SQUARE WITH RYAN SEACREST Friday, Dec. 31 (11:00 PM-12:30 AM ET Live/PT Tape-Delayed) on FOX.

This January, Seacrest reprises his role as host of FOX's No. 1 hit AMERICAN IDOL. With his successful broadcasting career, it's no wonder E! Online named 29-year-old Seacrest one of the "20 Young Guns Under 30 Who Hold Hollywood's Future in Their Hands" and why he was voted one of People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful." With AMERICAN IDOL, his radio shows "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" and "American Top 40" ("AT40") and the many specials and award shows he presents throughout the year, he is able to reach millions of American eyes and ears. Seacrest's morning show, "On Air with Ryan Seacrest," has broken ratings records for parent company Clear Channel and continues to be the No. 1-rated morning radio show among women 18-49. The show broadcasts daily from 5:00-10:00 AM in Los Angeles.

Usher has been at the forefront of the R&B music scene, selling over 15.6 million albums in the United States. Usher's current album "Confessions" spent nine weeks on the Billboard 200 chart and has sold 6.5 million records in the United States alone. In its first week of release, "Confessions" sold 1.2 million copies, making it the biggest sales week of the year for any album. Usher recently re-released his hit album "Confessions" and a new track titled "My Boo" featuring Alicia Keys; the single has already gone to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Aside from his music career, Usher has also starred in such films as "She's All That" and "The Faculty."

NEW YEAR'S EVE: LIVE FROM TIMES SQUARE WITH RYAN SEACREST is from Ryan Seacrest Productions in association with Tall Pony Productions. The special is executive-produced by Ryan Seacrest, Anthony Eaton and Dave Broome.
