NEW YORK, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Pitbull and Hot Chelle Rae have joined the lineup for "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2012" in New York, ABC announced.

The artists will join previously announced performers Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber for the traditional holiday program.

Jenny McCarthy will report live from Times Square with hosts Clark and Seacrest, while Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas will emcee the Los Angeles-based portions of the special.
