All around the world, excited people are making plans and putting together glittery outfits to celebrate New Year’s Eve. But then there’s us. We would much rather be parked on the couch in our comfiest PJs, heating up some frozen hors d’oeuvres (pizza bagels and spinach-artichoke dip, anyone?).

If your plans sound a lot like ours, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The five-and-a-half hour special will feature an international performance for the first time in the show’s 45-year history. And the guest lineup for this year is sounding pret-ty good.

Here’s what you can expect to see while ringing in the new year with Ryan Seacrest and Jenny McCarthy.

Yes, the queen of Christmas pop is riding her holiday popularity wave right into the 2017. In fact, she’s headlining the event in Times Square, singing a medley of hits right before midnight. (We can’t wait to see which sparkly, over-the-top ensemble she pulls out for this occasion.) DNCE, Thomas Rhett, and the cast of Gloria Estefan’s Broadway show On Your Feet! will also perform.

For the first time ever, the Dick Clark special will feature a central time countdown. The Pretty Little Liars star will host in New Orleans, joined by Jason Derulo and Panic! at the Disco.

According to Billboard, the ball-drop special will also feature a touching homage to the late George Michael.

So pop some bubbly, put on some footie pajamas, and settle in for a long night of pop music and sequins. 2017, we’re ready for you!
