Transcript for Ryan Seacrest on Mariah Carey's return to NYE
Back now with a guy who gets my vote for the coolest guy, Mr. New year's eve himself, Mr. Ryan Seacrest who will host Dick Clark's new year's rockin' eve. The coldest guy. Everybody is telling me how to stay warm. I haven't been in this temperature before. You're going to feel it. We cannot wait to see what you have up your sleeve. Mariah Carey is coming back. A little uncertainty. It didn't go as planned. Did not go as planned. You must be so excited. Listen, I've known her a long time. She is an old friend of ours. New year about new beginnings and she's a legendary iconic artist so we're excited to have her back to do it again. She's going to do a couple of songs, one of which will be "Hero" right before midnight outside in that cold. That will be hard to sing those high notes. Was this her idea to come back.

To take it down I need help. Could you help me take it down, at my height I can't take it down. I think we're the same height. Stand on my shoulders. The love fest is going on between these two? At least a cooperation pact. We have so much to talk about. A million people in times square
