New Year’s Eve is right around the corner — and the stars are ready!

Some of music’s biggest artists will appear on NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly television spectacular this year. The hours leading up to the ball drop will be broadcast live from New York City’s Times Square.

Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys and Pentatonix are set to take to the stage at the annual event to perform their biggest hits for the massive crowd.

“New Year’s Eve is always a thrilling night to broadcast live from Times Square,” Daly said in a statement. “The excitement of the ball dropping, great music and millions of friends and families coming together to celebrate is incomparable.”

“This will be my 14th year on NBC ringing in the new year in Times Square, and there’s no place I’d rather be.”

Mel B will host alongside Daly.

The announcement comes just a day after Pentatonix secured a Grammy nomination for their collaboration with Dolly Parton on her iconic track, “Jolene.”
