This was my 5th year hosting at the Hard Rock Café, and it was my best year yet. The energy from the crowd was uplifting, a pair of newly weds had their first dance in the middle of the Times Square revelers, and the performances from Daya and Jessie J were mesmerizing. The only thing that was missing were glowsticks…no wait, I brought those too. If you love New Years Eve, subscribe to my YouTube channel.
