Dick Clark will be joined by the likes of Nelly, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, and Justin Timberlake as he rings in the new year with a trio of ABC television specials. For the 31st consecutive year, Clark will be stationed in New York's Times Square, where he will report on the action and keep his eye on the ball dropping to welcome 2003.

Clark's first special will be "Dick Clark's Primetime New Year's Rockin' Eve," an hour-long show airing at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Among the featured segments will be highlights of the top tours of 2002, with footage of Coldplay, John Mayer, and retiring country act Alabama. Also appearing will be correspondents Steve Doocy ("Fox & Friends") and Mario Lopez ("The Other Half").

Next up is "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2002, Part 1," an hour-and-a-half special that will air at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT. Ali Landry ("Spy TV") will co-host the show from Hollywood, and introduce performances by B2K, Kelly Clarkson, Elliott, Las Ketchup, Nelly, Rod Stewart, Third Eye Blind, Timberlake, and Uncle Kracker. Clark, Doocy, and Lopez will continue their coverage from Times Square.

Finally, "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2002, Part 2," will air at 1:05 a.m. ET/PT. Landry will once again be on hand for encore performances by B2K, Clarkson, Elliott, Nelly, Third Eye Blind, Timberlake, and Uncle Kracker, while Clark will wrap up the Times Square coverage.
