What better way to ring in the final moments of 2013 than with a performance from the year’s breakout R&B star Ariana Grande. Yep, Ariana will be hangin’ with Ryan Seacrest at the West Coast party — along with some other big-name acts — for the annual Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014 on ABC on December 31.

It seems only right that the chart-topper would finish out her musical reign over the holiday season. Once you’ve nailed the Thanksgiving Day parade and Rockefeller Center tree lighting, you’ve got to complete the trifecta with a NYE performance. Plus, it’s her last chance to serve up those uber-catchy Christmas singles she’s released over recent weeks!

The other performers joining Ariana to chum it up with Seacrest for the celebration include Robin Thicke, Jennifer Hudson, Daughtry, and Jason Derulo, among others. That’s right, two American Idol alums on one stage! What a coup.

Wait, and what if JHud and Ariana were to sing together? That’s almost too much vocal power to handle! If it doesn’t happen on New Year’s, it better happen some time in 2014, all we’re sayin’.

Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014 airs December 31 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Will you be tuning in this NYE? Sound off below.
