ET Canada’s ready to ring in 2015 with a bang and one epic lineup!
Canada’s countdown show will see four-time Grammy-winning artist Keith Urban take the stage for the biggest New Year’s Eve party this side of the 49th parallel.
Rick Campanelli recently sat down with Keith’s wife, Nicole Kidman, and got the goods on how excited the actress is to spend her first new year’s eve on Canadian soil.
Despite the freezing temperatures, Nicole said, “I’ll be in the audience with my full ski gear on, cheering!”; The “Paddington”; actress kept mum on her husband’s performance plans, but did tell Rick that she’s never been to Canada for New Year’s Eve but that her family “is always looking for new adventures.”; Watch more with Nicole below!
The multi-Country Music Award-winning artist might be headlining the show, but he’s not alone. Homegrown talent (not to mention Taylor Swift’s personal choice for a tour mate), epithetically-renowned Shawn Mendes will be “the life of the party”;, opening our show with fellow Canadian, Lights! Nick Jonas is sure to make every other show “jealous”; as he rounds out our list of performers for the evening.
Lights shared her excitement with Erin Cebula, saying, “I’ve written so many songs in Niagara Falls,”; adding that she often collaborates with a writer who lives in Fort Erie, but said she “always stays in Niagara.”; The reason that the Toronto-born, B.C. resident always comes back to the falls? “It’s very powerful,”; she said. “Amid all the shiny lights, there’s this incredibly powerful force, rushing at all hours of the day and there’s something really inspiring about that.”; Watch more with Lights below.
Just in case you thought the excitement stopped there, Nick Jonas has revealed he’s “thrilled”; to be joining the star-studded lineup and perform for his “Canadian fans on one of [his] favourite holidays.”;
The two-and-a-half hour spectacular will be hosted by Cheryl Hickey, Rick Campanelli and Sangita Patel with the live broadcast beginning at 10 pm ET on December 31 on Global!
