It is not hard to see how the year 2020 was different from any year we have experienced. So, one can expect the New Year’s Eve (NYE)celebration in Times Square, where tourists and a few brave New Yorkers come to celebrate the wildest night of the year to be different in 2020.

 For the first time since its inception in 1907, the city’s famous New Year’s ball will drop in an empty Times Square. You can join a digital party by downloading the free “NYE” app, or sign in to, to see what’s in store. With this app you can take a selfie without being physically present in Times Square! There won’t be lack of celebrities and some great performances including J Lo plan to sing right before midnight. In the meantime, here is a look back at the five out of many memorable NYE Ball Drop moments!!

Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen‘s CNN co-hosting was called an “Awkward Banter” in 2017. This awkwardness made some viewers call out for a return of Kathy Griffin. Wel,l it seems ACx2 worked on their chemistry. Last year was memorable with Anderson Cooper talking, giggling, and making faces after taking a shot of tequila with 50 Cent and his co-host. Well guess who will be back this year?

Perhaps the Queen of Christmas, Mariah Carey loses her magic after Christmas? There were lots of technical difficulties during her 2016 performance which left her awkwardly pacing around the stage on Dick Clark’s “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.” Mariah called the experience “horrible” and fired her creative director over it. Mariah was back in 2017 and rocked that stage!

Whoever claims Mayor Bloomberg has no game should look back to NYE 2011!  Bloomberg and Lady Gaga kissed in 2011 and the world did not come to an end. Even though the moment caused many eyebrows to raise, Bloomberg, the billionaire mayor, said she’s “very charming,” but pointed out “I would be remiss if I didn’t also add to that that she’s best kiss of the night came after Diana,” referring to his longtime girlfriend.

Don Lemon got his ear pierced for NYE. The CNN anchor had an interesting start to 2017 in New Orleans. Instead of toasting like everyone else ( oh wait he did, many times), he ended up getting his ear pierced!

Maybe Don Lemon didn’t feel that great the next morning. Don was screaming the whole time asking the ear piercer to not get blood on his jacket!! Brooke Baldwin held his hand.

Taylor Swift and her boyfriend drama never ends. Taylor and Joe Jonas were awkwardly standing almost next to each other after on New Year’s Eve after a breakup.

It must be horrifying having to stand next to your ex and act like everything’s fine while millions are watching. He reportedly broke up with the “Bad Blood” singer in a 27-second phone call !!

Stay safe everyone! By next NYE thousands of revelers will be back standing in freezing Times Square. Happy New Year 2021!!
