Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve with Ryan Seacrest brought the New Year in with a bang. If you were too busy partying and celebrating with friends, check out the top moments you missed from the biggest New Year’s Eve party around!
1. One Direction performed for the first time before their major hiatus.
The boys are taking a well-deserved break, but before they do, they performed at the annual Billboard Holiday Party. The boys performed their hit songs “Perfect”, “Drag Me Down”, and “History” off their latest album Made In The A.M. Although it’s tough to see them off the stage for a bit, something tells us that they’ll be back stronger than ever.

2015 was the year of Taylor Swift, and it looks like 2016 is going to be as well. Before the ball dropped, Swift released the music video for her latest single off 1989 titled “Out of the Woods.” See Swift in her natural element (literally!):
Since its release, the video has acquired over six million likes, four hundred thousand likes, and went to #77 on the iTunes Bestselling Songs list. Not a bad way to close out 2015, Taylor.
There were performances galore by some of your favorite artists. The night began with Nick Jonas and his performance of “Levels.” Looking fierce in a leather jacket and black jean combo, the second-to-youngest Jonas brother celebrated his last performance of 2015 with a roaring crowd.
Alessia Cara was the next to take the stage, singing her chart-topping song “Here.” By the end of the performance, nobody was asking her what she was doing there, as she looked like a natural onstage. The hype continued with Fall Out Boy’s performance of “Uma Thurman.”
The feels started when Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa took the stage to sing their song “See You Again”, featured in Fast and Furious 7. We know that Charlie Puth is definitely someone we’ll be seeing again in 2016, as he gears up to release his debut album Nine Track Mind.
Other notable performances included songs from Pentatonix, Demi Lovato, One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer, Andy Grammar, Carrie Underwood, Ellie Goulding, ToveLo, Rachel Platten and OMI.
Miss America paid a visit to Times Square to celebrate.
Miss America 2016, Betty Cantrell, paid a visit to New York City to ring in the New Year with visitors from not only across the United States, but around the world! We are totally loving her warm weather attire and newly debuted short hair, which she cut this holiday season to donate for a wig for cancer patients. You go girl, leading by example!
DJ Khaled gave us the major key for success.
DJ Khaled became a major Snapchat sensation when he began posting his motivational snaps to his millions of followers. During the night, DJ Khaled left a video about what he sees as the major key to success for 2016. What a great way to start out the new year!
