Phillip Phillips Will Ring in the New Year By Performing on FOX’s NYE Show
American Idol host Ryan Seacrest has met his match when it comes to competition as we bid adieu to 2012. While he’s hosting the iconic Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2013in New York City’s Times Square, Idol winner and undeniable heartthrob Phillip Phillips will be performing on FOX’s star-studded New Year’s Eve Live! at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas (with Prince Harry as the exception) but, luckily for us Phillip fans, this one will be televised, airing Monday, December 31 at 11 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.
Alongside the majorly successful Idol winner will be a feature performance from the rock group Lifehouse and Carmen Electra, who released her latest single, “I Like it Loud,” featuring Bill Hame (other performers TBA).
Phillip Phillips knows firsthand what a difference a year makes. Since winning Idol last season, he has released his debut album, “The World From the Side of the Moon,” to rave reviews and massive sales. The album itself debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, while his AI coronation song, “Home,” has seen sales of more than 2.5 million, making it the most successful of any former Idol winners. Who need resolutions with a year like that?
