SEOUL -- NewJeans has become the first K-pop girl band to interact with American fans through an annual special New Year's Eve show hosted by American broadcaster ABC. The program titled "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest" broadcasts the countdown event at Times Square in New York and showcases promising artists of the year.

The group's agency ADOR said on January 1 that NewJeans appeared on New Year's Rockin' Eve. The five-member band performed two songs from its mini-album "Get Up" -- "Super Shy" and "ETA." Other artists such as American singer Post Malone and Puerto Rican artist Ivy Queen also performed on the stage. 

According to ADOR, NewJeans is the only K-pop artist that celebrated New Year's Eve on the annual program. Previously, South Korean artists including Psy, BTS, J-Hope, and TXT (Tomorrow X Together) have performed on the American show.

NewJeans, which debuted in July 2022, is known for its exceptional dance performances and singing skills in many genres such as R&B and hip hop. The girl group was formed under the command of Min Hee-jin, a genius idol incubator who planned concepts for SM Entertainment groups such as Girls' Generation, f(x), and Red Velvet.

In August 2023, group members performed at the Lollapalooza Festival 2023, a music festival held in Chicago. Lollapalooza is an annual global event held in various countries including the U.S., Chile, and Brazil.
