Mariah Carey will kick off 2017 with a bang as she is set to ring in the new year with a live performance in Times Square.

Mimi will be the headliner for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest and will take the midtown Manhattan stage moments before the ball drops to mark the new year.
