Howie Dorough is ready to ring in the New Year with a bangin’ performance…
The 46-year-old half-Puerto Rican singer and his Backstreet Boys mates will take the stage for Fox’s third annual Fox’s New Year’s Eve with Steve Harvey: Live from Times Square special.
Dorough and the Backstreet Boys join a lineup that includes LL Cool J, DJ Z-Trip, the Chainsmokers, the Lumineers, Florida Georgia Line, Tygaand The Killers, along with celebrity appearances by Gordon Ramsay, Will Arnettand Jenna Dewan.
Maria Menounos and NFL ex-player Rob Gronkowskiwill co-host the evening, which will feature a performance by Angel Moralesand his fellow Village Peoplemembers as the group tries to set a world record for the largest YMCAdance.
The evening also will feature a WWE match with Roman Reigns.
The Fox party starts at 8:00 pm live from Manhattan, with a tape-delayed edition for the Mountain and Pacific time zones.
The 28-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/singer has agreed to a recurring role on Marc Cherry’s Lifetime series Devious Maids.
Rivera will portray Blanca, a new maid in the neighborhood who has landed a job with the seemingly picture-perfect Beverly Hills family. But she soon discovers a terrible secret–something that could change her life forever.
It’s Rivera’s first major acting commitment since wrapping the final season of Glee.
Additionally, Rivera, who is in talks for a book deal, has reportedly been asked back on ABC’s morning talk show The Viewand will do several more episodes as co-host this month. She previously did two appearances in November and two more last month, with virtually all producing soundbites that have gone viral, boosting The View’s social media presence.
There had been speculation that the producers of the embattled daytime talk show may have bigger plans for Rivera, and her return for more guest co-hosting is further in the fuel that.
