The novel coronavirus has been the biggest story of the year, shutting down industries and forcing many to stay home. However, with the new year only a few days away, some are looking into making things work.

This week, Ryan Seacrest spoke to new sources about the upcoming edition of "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve," which is set to take place in Times Square.

In his appearance, Seacrest explained that the show's organizers understand the significance of the times and the fact that the event will be a tad different.

With the novel coronavirus still out there, gatherings of people have been discouraged. So, there is little doubt that Times Square will be less packed than it used to be.

Despite the lack of a crowd, Seacrest explained that the producers of "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" have a lot planned. In part, the host said:

This year's edition of the event is already looking to be one of the biggest ever, with several acts set to perform and thrill fans as they head into 2021. Despite not being able to attend the event, Seacrest is assuring fans that they will have an epic experience no matter what.

Beyond the performances, Seacrest claimed that this year's event would also pay tribute to healthcare workers.

Similar to editions in the past, this year's "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" will take place in New York and Los Angeles at the same time.

Reports have revealed the order of performances, with names like Jennifer Lopez, Billy Porter, and much more set to grace the stage on the night. A statement from ABC Studios on the event reads:

"Seacrest is returning to host the event for a 16th year, and he will be joined by Porter and Lucy Hale in New York. Ciara will host from Los Angeles."

Lopez appears to be the headlining act, and she has been working tirelessly to bring her best to the show. Yesterday, paparazzi caught the singer dressed in a green ensemble as she made her way to rehearsals for the show.

Beyond the performances, Seacrest claimed that this year's event would also pay tribute to healthcare workers. The host explained that there would be a special segment to honor and celebrate these essential workers.

Singer Ciara also reminisced about a memorable New Year's Eve she spent with her husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Even with the novel coronavirus, it will be great to see the lifted spirits of many as they look to ring in the new year.
