Fans of the two stars appear to be surprised and excited for the duo to host the special, to say the least.
“Miley Cyrus and Pete Davidson hosting NYE will be peak chaotic energy,” one fan tweeted, as another wrote, “I don’t love Pete Davidson but learning that he and Miley Cyrus are hosting a New Year’s Eve party in Miami this year makes so much sense and I will be tuning in.”
The special will be broadcast live from Miami on the night of Dec. 21 from 10 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. ET on NBC. Peacock, NBC’s streamings service, will also show a livestream of the all-star celebration.
