INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR TAYLOR SWIFT TO HEADLINE FOR ONE MILLION FANS LIVE FROM TIMES SQUARE ON "DICK CLARK'S NEW YEAR'S ROCKIN' EVE WITH RYAN SEACREST 2013"

A New, Live Two-Hour Special Featuring a Tribute to Dick Clark, Hosted by Jenny McCarthy and Fergie, Kicks off the Night at 8:00 p.m., ET on ABC

Ten-time American Music Award winner Taylor Swift will headline "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2013," performing live in front of a crowd of an estimated 1 million people in Times Square just before the ball drops on MONDAY, DECEMBER 31 on the ABC Television Network. She headlines the biggest party of the year, fresh from the record-breaking success of her blockbuster new album, "RED."

Lauded by The New York Times as "one of the most important pop artists of the last decade" and by Rolling Stone as "one of the few genuine rock stars we've got these days," Taylor Swift is a six-time Grammy winner and is the youngest winner in history of the music industry's highest honor, the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. With the 2012 release of her album "RED," she is the only female artist in music history (and just the fourth artist ever) to twice have an album hit the 1 million first-week sales figure. She holds the record for the biggest digital sales week ever for a song by a woman, and for the second-largest song sales week overall, as well as the worldwide iTunes record for highest ever first-week album sales.

"I remember meeting and listening to Taylor Swift perform before she even had her first single. I was blown away by her talent and just knew that she would be a huge success," said Ryan Seacrest. "Taylor is truly this year's global star and is the perfect artist to ring in the New Year for us at the crossroads of the world."

The New Year's festivities kick off at 8:00 p.m., ET with a two-hour live special featuring a tribute to Dick Clark, hosted by Fergie and Jenny McCarthy, "New Year's Rockin' Eve Celebrates Dick Clark." The special celebrates, through clips and reminiscences, the legendary television personality and producer who rang in the New Year for four decades and launched and nurtured the careers of countless artists. Ryan Seacrest makes a special appearance.

Beginning at 10:00 p.m., ET, Ryan Seacrest will host "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2013" from New York, with Jenny McCarthy returning to interview the revelers in Times Square. Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas will return to host the Los Angeles-based portions of the specials. In addition to Taylor Swift, some of America's hottest artists and groups will perform throughout the night. The bi-coastal celebration will include over 5 1/2 hours of special performances and reports on New Year's celebrations from around the globe, and Ryan Seacrest will lead the traditional countdown to midnight from Times Square in New York City.

The complete lineup Monday night, December 31 on ABC is:

8:00-10:00 p.m., ET -- "New Year's Rockin' Eve Celebrates Dick Clark"
