The countdown is on to 2010! Anderson is getting ready to head to Times Square to ring in the new year with Kathy Griffin. Don't miss our New Year's Eve special live from 11 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. ET on CNN.
Hundreds of thousands of people have already gathered in New York City's Times Square. About 3,000 pounds of confetti will drop along with the New Year's Eve crystal ball at midnight. We'll bring it to you live. CNN's Don Lemon and Poppy Harlow are also be in Times Square checking in with those in the crowd.
We'll also take you to Central Park where 360's Gary Tuchman is bravely bringing in the new year with the 4-mile Midnight Run - in the snow and rain. Gooo, Gary!
Also on our radar - the Key West shoe drop, or more precisely a giant red-heel drop. At the stroke of midnight, Sushi, whose real name is Gary Marion, will be lowered from the second-story balcony at the Bourbon Street Pub to ring in 2010. Once again, John Zarrella will be covering the Key West party.
And, we'll be checking in with 'N Sync alum Lance Bass, who will join us from Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
Get your New Year's hats and noisemakers ready. We're just a few hours away from welcoming 2010. Gather your family and friends around the TV and join us for the fun.
And, as we say goodbye to 2009 and hello to 2010, we want to thank you for being a 360° fan. We wish you all a happy and healthy new year!
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
