SEOUL -- Girl band NewJeans will become the first K-pop girl band to interact with American fans through a popular New Year's Eve show hosted by the United States 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 said on December 14 NewJeans will appear on New Year's Rockin' Eve. The five-member band will perform two songs from its mini-album "Get Up" -- "Super Shy" and "ETA." Other participants in this year's show include American singer Post Malone and Ivy Queen, a Puerto Rican artist. Previously, South Korean artists including Psy, BTS, J-Hope, and TXT (Tomorrow X Together) have performed on the annual program.

NewJeans, which debuted in July 2022, is known for its exceptional dance performances and outstanding singing skills in many genres such as R&B and hip hop. 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.

The girl group was formed by ADOR 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.
