NGQxNmY5YiZvZj*w Ryan Seacrest: Beyonce coming to New Year's Rockin' Evevideo platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

Ryan Seacrest is once again hosting Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve from Times Square (in addition to a pre-party show where they celebrate the 40 years that it has been running). He tells “Extra,” “Make sure you tune in, it’s a big party.”

“They’re expecting more people than ever … Justin Bieber, Pitbull doing his big hit of the year and Lady Gaga all together in this little area in the middle of Times Square … we try and celebrate some of the biggest artists of the year,” says Seacrest

The finely-coiffed Seacrest also teases a guest appearance by Beyonce. He says, “You will see Beyonce on the show. I can’t tell you too much, but if you’re a Beyonce fan, man she’s looking good these days, you’ll want to see Beyonce. So tune in for that.”

We cannot help but speculate that it will be Beyonce live from St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital with her new baby, as birth rumors are flying on the ‘net right now.

What do you think, Zappers? That’d be a fun surprise, no?

Be sure and tune in for the pre-show, New Year’s Rockin’ Eve: The 40th Anniversary Party, which airs from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET, then the live Times Square 2011 New Year’s festivities start, on ABC.
