December 31 is fast approaching, which means many are preparing for New Year’s Eve festivities. Among those with special plans to ring in 2023 is Ciara, who will once again co-host Dick Clark‘s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. This time around, she’ll be overseeing festivities from Disneyland, which makes her even more excited for the gig.

“I think this is, like, the perfect way to mix up some things from my perspective, as this is my sixth year being one of the co-hosts of the show and Disneyland is my favorite place, it is one of my favorite places in the world,” she tells ABC Audio. 

Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve starts at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, with festivities going down in Times Square, LA and New Orleans. Ciara is one of many musical artists who are slated to take the stage.

“I’m going to give my fans a taste of ‘Better Thangs,’ which is my song featuring Summer Walker,” she reveals. “I’m also going to rock some of my song ‘Jump.’ … The cool thing is I’ve never performed these songs before, so it’ll be my first time rocking them on the stage.”

Ciara also plans to deliver “something exclusive,” which she says will exude “winning energy.” “It’s all about winning in 2023, so I can’t wait to give my fans something special and new,” she teases.

Her outfit for the night, she adds, will include an accessory fitting for Disneyland.

“We’re celebrating the 100th year of Disney and they have these really amazing platinum-dripping Mickey ears that I’m so excited to rock,” she says. “They’re very special and they’re also little heavy, so I’m looking forward to that.”
