Hosted by the “Timber” singer and produced by Endemol, the special will air live on Wednesday, December 31 from 8:00-10:00 pm ET live (CT/MT/PT tape-delayed).

The project is aimed at potentially launching a New Year’s Eve franchise for Fox with Pitbull similar to ABC’s Rockin’ Evewith Ryan Seacrest and NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly.

The show will feature performances by Pitbull and various musicians, DJs, and celebrities and will take place in his hometown of Miami, FL.

“The world needs to get ready to un-mute New Year’s Eve, because we are taking the party from the Big Apple to the Pineapple,” says Pitbull in a statement about his new project. “New Year’s Eve is officially in Miami and hosted by yours truly, Mr. Worldwide. P.S. Whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but whatever happens in Miami never happened, Daleee!”

Carey made the announcement on New Year’s Eve, during her performance on New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly. The title of the track is currently unknown.

Carey has also revealed that her long-delayed album, The Art of Letting Go, will be released in the very near future.

“The album is coming this spring,” she told the audience at the event. “New single, Valentine’s Day.”

Originally slated to be released last July, the album was postponed because Carey still wanted to add some good songs.

“I’d rather not exclude meaningful songs. I want to give you this album as it’s meant to be heard,” she said in June.

The Art of Letting Go will include “Triumphant (Get ‘Em),” which was released back in 2012, lead single “#Beautiful” which features a guest appearance from Miguel, and title track “The Art of Letting Go” which premiered on Carey’s Facebook page in November.
