Drake, Fergie, La Roux, Avril Lavigne heading to 'New Year's Rockin' Eve'
Ne-Yo, Train, Jennifer Hudson and others also on slate for the Dick Clack/Ryan Seacrest show
Ryan Seacrest will have a couple friends on hand to ring in "New Year's Rockin' Eve" this year. Fergie and Jenny McCarthy are on slate to co-host the Dick Clark production, with acts like Drake, Avril Lavigne, La Roux, Ne-Yo, Train, Jennifer Hudson and others scheduled to perform and appear.
ABC's "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacres 2011" will run for about three-and-a-half hours over NYE (and early-morning New Year's Day). This will mark the sixth year the "American Idol" host will helm the variety show; he'll be holding down the fort in New York with McCarthy while Fergie will play hostess in taped segments from Los Angeles.
The Black Eyed Peas singer co-hosted four other "Rockin'" NYE shows before.
