The celebration is kicked off at 11 P.M. ET, featuring a flashback into 2010 in pop culture and a record breaking attempt.
MTV has assigned one of its juggernauts to ring in its New Year's Eve special. "Jersey Shore" star Snooki will climb into a ball that is lowered into New York's Times Square as part of "MTV New Year's Bash".
Snooki is not the only "Jersey" cast to appear at the live event. The Situation would lead the crowd for a serious fist-pumping in an attempt to break a Guinness World Record. Meanwhile, DJ Pauly D would be the official DJ of the night.
Rapper Flo Rida is tapped to perform two songs while Whitney Cummings is one of the comedians who would give their unique take on the music, TV shows, Internet happenings, relationships and douche bags who made 2010 an unforgettable year, MTV said.
The hour-long show will be broadcast live from the MTV studios in Times Square with Cummings as the host. There will be additional reporting of the festivities down below from "The Seven" hosts, Kevin Manno and Julie Alexandria. Beside waiting for 2011's arrival, the crowd can expect a sneak peek of "Jersey Shore" season 3.
