It's almost time to say goodbye to 2015, and while this year was filled with lots of excitement, 2016 is shaping out to be even bigger thanks to the buzz around this year's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin Eve. The annual show is way more than just a televised event. It's more of a party as the celebrations across the globe are flashed across our screen. Each year the program becomes bigger and better, and we have several reasons why we can't wait to tune in to the special.

1. The World Premiere of Taylor Swift's "Out of the Woods" Music Video
There's no secret that Swift delivers some of the most entertaining music videos. From her host of celebrity friends making cameos in "Bad Blood" to her hilarious acting in "Blank Space," the performer always puts on a good show in her videos and "Out of the Woods" is guaranteed to be no different.

2. One Direction's Last Performance in the U.S. Before Their Break
One of our favorite boy bands is sadly gearing up to take a break in 2016. Seeing Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson together on the stage in Los Angeles one last time before their hiatus is sure to be unforgettable.

3. Carrie Underwood Is Performing Right Before the Ball Drops
There's nothing more exciting than counting down to ten before the clock strikes midnight. Except for doing it right after watching Underwood bring down the house. The sassy country singer is slated to get the crowd pumped just before the ball drops.

4. Ryan Seacrest, Jenny McCarthy, and Fergie Will Host
For the tenth year in a row, Seacrest will do the honors as a host for the evening. He's definitely a pro, and he'll get a little help from McCarthy and Fergie, with the singer moderating the show from Los Angeles.

5. Reports on Celebrations Around the World
Not only will we get to see what's going on in Times Square and at the Billboard Hollywood Party in Los Angeles, the show will also give us a glimpse at what's happening all over the globe as everyone prepares to ring in a happy new year.

Tune in to Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve live on Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. ET.
