The rocker and R&B star will perform live from New Orleans at Allstate Fan Fest.

Sheryl Crow and Usher won't be ringing in 2020 from the crowded chill of Times Square, but they will be bringing a bit of the Big Easy to this year's party for Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

As a part of AllState Fan Fest in New Orleans, Crow and Usher will perform live as a part of the central time zone celebration of the national New Year's event, which will be hosted by Billy Porter. 

“We in New Orleans pride ourselves on being both a welcoming city and a world-class destination, which makes us the perfect city to welcome the New Year – and a world-class TV production to showcase our festivities for the world to see,” said Mayor LaToya Cantrell in a statement. “We are beyond excited to welcome a Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award-winning entertainer in Billy Porter as our new host. We want everyone to join us to watch the Fleur de Lis drop and help us usher in a New Year and a new decade.”

Seacrest will reprise his hosting duties for the 15th year in NYC alongside co-host and Lucy Hale. Ciara will host the festivities for the West Coast soiree in Los Angeles, which is set to feature performances from Green Day, Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion, Dan + Shay and more.

Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest will kick things off at 8 p.m. on Dec. 31 on ABC.
