Due to the pandemic, this year’s show will look a little different and will be closed to the public. However, viewers can expect to see the return of previous hosts including Ciara who will announce the Los Angeles festivities, and of course, the return of Ryan Seacrest who will be helped by Lucy Hale and Billy Porter in New York City.
“2020 has been a trying year for the world and I’m thrilled to have Billy and Lucy join me in ushering in a new year with fresh beginnings,” Seacrest said in a statement. “We look forward to making sure it’s a night for everyone to remember.”
