Miley Cyrus may have parted ways with her fiancé Liam Hemsworth in 2013 but she had no trouble finding someone to lock lips with on New Year’s Eve. Girlfriend’s got a long list of likely contenders including bestie and twerking partner Cheyne Thomas as well as fellow frequent flyer and potential new flame Kellan Lutz.

But neither guy was the first to kiss Miley in the new year. That honor goes to none other than entertainment industry extraordinaire Ryan Seacrest.

Miley spent the evening performing on Ryan’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve special live in Times Square and when the ball dropped (a ball she, thankfully, wasn’t riding) the 21-year-old planted a big one on the 39-year-old Ryan.

“Yay!!!! They caught our NY midnight kiss! Happy New Years @RyanSeacrest & thank you for having me,” she tweeted on New Year’s Day along with a photo of the big moment. It’s a sweet pic with Miley, looking stunning in a sparkly gold outfit with floor-length white fur coat, holding Ryan’s face as they pucker up and usher in 2014.

Let’s hope the entertainment wiz’s rumored new girlfriend, model Shayna Terese Taylor, didn’t mind the holiday embrace. At least there’s no sign of Miley’s tongue.
