For years people have spent their New Year’s Eve watching Dick Clark’s New Year’s special. If you are one of these people than you know this show is hosted by the well known Ryan Seacrest and Anderson Cooper. During their years of hosting the show the two have pushed through the night in many different types of weather, but bringing in the year 2019 was a rough one.
Standing out in the pouring down rain for hours is hard especially when it is also cold outside, but the people attending Dick Clark’s New Year did just that. Thousands of people gathered in Time Square to watch the ball drop despite the rain. When asked if he regretted attending this year because of the rain Anderson Cooper stated that he had stood out for longer during hurricanes, and to him this was nothing.
Another big thing happening that night was the operas celebration of the new year. Emma Stone arrived soaking wet in a ball gown, but this did not stop her from having a great night. The night was spent eating a lobster and duck dinner, enjoying dessert, drinking champagne, and watching a beautiful firework display. They even put on a little performance for the people attending.
This years New Year’s celebration was a little different in terms of weather, but standing in the pouring down rain did not stop everyone from enjoying the night. Although some of the attenders said they would much rather be home in their pajamas watching the show on their television they still enjoyed the night. Dick Clark’s New Year’s special will be a show that is around for many years to come. Anderson Cooper and Ryan Seacrest plan to continue to host the show for many more years to come. They cannot think of another way they would want to spend their New Year’s Eve.
