Buh-bye, 2015! Celebs — like us — are saying goodbye to the past, and they’re ready for a fresh start. Some of our favorite people showed the world how they’re welcoming the New Year — see how the stars celebrated tonight!
New Year’s Eve is one of the most magical nights of the year — anything can happen, whether it’s a special smooch at midnight or a crazy, fun party with your best friends. Selena Gomez, 23, is just one of the stars who couldn’t wait to meet 2016, and we’ve rounded up the rest of the greatest moments of tonight right here!
We have to start with Mariah Carey‘s stunning performance at Crown Casino’s New Year’s Eve Party in Melbourne, Australia. She was decked out in full-on NYE sparkle, and of course she sounded amazing! Aussie Rebel Wilson shared tons of snaps on Twitter and Instagram of herself celebrating with friends in Sydney — “super fun night” is right!
Then there was Nick Jonas‘ sexy performance of “Levels” during Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve. He looked smoking hot in a leather jacket as the exuberant crowd almost drowned him out with their cheering! The a capella superstar group known as Pentatonix also held their own and gave us that “Can’t Sleep Love”, and let’s not forget about that killer rendition of “Hey Everybody” by 5SOS!
Ellie Goulding wowed with “Love Me Like You Do”, and of course Demi Lovato brought the house down with her performances of “Confident” and “Cool For The Summer”. As usual, One Direction gave us, you know, perfection with “Perfect”. Meanwhile, Fergie wowed in a see-through gown covered in crystals as a co-host of the special.
There was also plenty of social media love from Young Hollywood — Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner both posted adorable #TBT pics of New Year’s Eve pasts, and Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens instagrammed a sweet selfie together. Finally, Selena Gomez — who looked amazing in a midriff-baring skirt — and her friends took a cute group shot where everyone was barefoot. Can you say NYE friendship goals?!
