Ringin’ in the New Year with Latino Musicians…

From Selena Gomez to Carlos Santana, several Latino musicians helped ring in the New Year with high-octane performances on some of the night’s most-watched “say goodbye to 2011” television programs live from New York City’s Times Square and Hollywood.

2012 Fireworks

In case, like me, you weren’t near a television this New Year’s Eve to catch the star-studded shows, including Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on ABC and MTV’s NYE in NYC 2012, here’s a look at some of the night’s hottest performances:

Demi Lovato, “Give Your Heart A Break”
Selena Gomez, “Love You Like a Love Song” & “Hit the Lights”

Pitbull, “I Know You Want Me” & “Give Me Everything”

Justin Bieber & Carlos Santana, “Let It Be”

Diego Torres, “Creo en América”

A Shirtless New Year’s Eve for Posey?

Tyler Posey isn’t afraid to lose his shirt when it comes to making his next TV appearance a smash…

In the latest promo for MTV’s NYE in NYC 2012 special, the 20-year-old part-Mexican Teen Wolf star, who will co-host the festivities, teases potential viewers with a topless notion:

“I hear if there’s a full moon, a certain shirtless werewolf may run through Times Square naked,” vows Posey while doing push-ups in the clip for the television special, which will include appearances by Selena Gomez, J. Cole, Jason Derulo and Mac Miller. Demi Lovato will serve as Posey’s co-host.

When someone off-camera tells him there won’t actually be a full moon on December 31, he quickly says, “Oh, he’ll probably take off his shirt anyway. I hear he’s been doing lot of push-ups lately.”

MTV’s NYE in NYC 2012 special will air live from Times Square this Saturday, December 31 at 11 pm ET.

Gomez & Lovato to Celebrate New Year’s Eve with MTV…

It looks like Latweena sensations Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato will be spending New Year’s Eve together…

The two amigas—both 19-years-old part-Mexican singers/actresses—will ring in 2012 together as part of MTV’s live New Year’s special.

Gomez and Lovato will both perform during the special, according to MTV. Other performers include Jason Derülo, J Cole and Mac Miller. In addition, Lovato will co-host the night’s festivities with MTV’s Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey.

NYE in NYC 2012 will air live from MTV’s Times Square studios at 11:00 pm EST.

Meanwhile, fans will have the opportunity to bid to be a part of the studio audience with proceeds benefiting the Famine War Drought Relief (FWD), to help with the crisis in East Africa.

Gomez and Lovato go way back; the dynamic duo met on the set of Barney and Friends when they were just kids.
