There's no doubt Ke$ha will continue being crazy and foul-mouthed in 2011, but don't expect her to be a mean girl.
"Not become a d---bag?" said the "We R Who We R" singer, wearing bright turquoise lipstick and glowing 2011 glasses.
"You can do that," Seacrest said, moving on to talk to Brian Litterel of the Backstreet Boys, who said his resolution was to read more and spend more time with loved ones. Joey McIntyre from New Kids on the Block--who is expecting a second son-- vowed to act more like an adult.
Ke$ha began her glitzy, energized performance riling up the crowd with, "thank you for an incredible year. Now let's make 2011 our b--ch." The pop star's performance of "TikTok" included straddling a Santa Clause and beating a bunny pinata.
"It's been wild," the singer told Seacrest, adding that 2010 was almost as wild as she was. "It's been an incredible year,"
Taio Cruz, Willow Smith, Drake and Jennifer Hudson were also a part of star studded line-up for the annual New Year's bash in the busiest intersection of the city, with Black Eyed Peas' Fergie reporting from L.A. While Seacrest reported with the stars on stage, Jenny McCarthy was imbedded in the crowd.
"I wish I could wake up every morning to this!" The former Playboy model exclaimed. "It's electric!"
Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve has been a New Year's tradition on ABC since 1972, according to TV Guide. The "American Idol" host took over the annual show in 2005, shortly after Clark suffered a stroke. Despite difficulty when speaking, the 81-year-old T.V. man has only missed the show one year, when he was ill.
A crowd of an estimated 1 million joined Clark as he announced the final seconds of 2010. PopEater's Nicki Gostin argued his speech, although noticably slurred, was a huge improvement from last year when he incorrectly counted down the numbers.
After "1," Clark belted out "Happy New Year" along with the millions of other tuning in to ABC and smooched his wife, Kari Wigton.
"None of us would be here if it weren't for the legend," Seacrest said on stage with Ke$a and the two boy bands.
