Miley Cyrus in talks to lead Lorne Michaels-produced New Years Eve special for NBC…possibly ending Carson Daly’s 17-year run as host










Miley Cyrus could rock in the new year with NBC.

The 28-year-old We Can’t Stop singer is in talks to host a Lorne Michaels-produced special, but details of the event are still being captured, according to Vulture.

Leading NBC’s New Years Eve gig would end The Voice host Carson Daly’s nearly 17-year run as presenter.

Insiders say Miley’s New Year’s Eve celebrations will be organized as a “multi-hour, multi-city event with musical performances from numerous artists,” including Cyrus himself.

While some have suggested that Cyrus might ring the bell in Miami in 2022 rather than a traditional Times Square moment, another insider told Vulture that nothing is final yet.

SNL head honcho Michaels will serve as executive producer, but he isn’t expected to take on the night of show-running duties as he does on the long-standing sketch show.

NBC’s plans to party in the US indicate a major shift in their NYE programming.

Carson Daly has hosted the Peacock’s celebrations every year since 2004, with the exception of a break in 2017.

NBC’s redesign of NYE seems like a step to compete with ABC’s December 31 flagship Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.

The special was the best entertainment show of all of last year’s TV shows, attracting double the number of viewers in second place: the Oscars.

As the reigning champion of the genre, ABC’s New Years show is usually packed with hot talent.

Last year’s New Years Eve featured performances by headliners Jimmie Allen, Cyndi Lauper and Billy Porter, Machine Gun Kelly and Jennifer Lopez, as well as sets from Nelly, Brandy Norwood, Lewis Capaldi, En Vogue, Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, Ella Mai, Maluma, Saweetie and Miley herself.

NBC is probably hoping that Cyrus and Michaels will help their network attract their own share of high profile talent to their year-end party.

This year could also mean a shift in the network’s streaming strategy.

NBC and local affiliates recently negotiated their terms to allow content to be simulcasted with traditional broadcasts.

The first four episodes of SNL will be streamed live on Peacock, starting with this weekend’s episode hosted by Owen Wilson.
