Let Ryan Seacrest and ABC have New York: Armando Christian Perez, aka Pitbull, will be heading to Miami this year to host a New Year’s Eve show for Fox.
Produced by Endemol LIVE, the new live entertainment division of Los Angeles-based Endemol, and Pitbull’s Honey I’m Home shingle, “Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution” (working title) promises to “spotlight some of today’s most talented artists and will feature hot live performances and a countdown to 2015.” The party begins at 8 p.m. ET New Year’s Eve (with a tape delay for CT and PT airings) before taking a break for the nightly news at 10 p.m. and then resuming the bash at 11 p.m.
“Pitbull is one of the most charismatic entertainers in the world. We are thrilled he has chosen Fox as the home from which to launch his ‘New Year’s Revoltion,’” said Simon Andreae, EVP of alternative entertainment at Fox. “This event will be packed with chart-topping acts and can’t-miss surprises. With Pitbull in charge, it’s sure to be the hottest party on the planet.”
