-Welcome back, everybody. We're hanging out with Miley Cyrus and Pete Davidson! [ Cheers and applause ] Two of the best out there. Thank you so much for being here. You two are hosting a live New Year's Eve show on NBC. It's called "Miley's New Year's Eve Party." Why did you decide to do a New Year's Eve party? -So, one thing I think that gets focused on at New Year's time is what's to come, being optimistic, being hopeful about all these things that haven't happened yet, that we have no proof are going to happen. And we kind of erase everything that did happen and we forget to honor it and look backwards too and look at the -- even these last, you know, year and a half, two years has been rough, but there's these micro moments of happiness I'm sure all of us can find. Mine was -- I'm recently an auntie. So I have a little nephew now. [ Cheers and applause ] -Yeah, that's great news. -You know, even though this year has been hard, the last year and a half has been hard, you find those things that were positive in the year before. And you still are gonna look forward to what hasn't happened yet but I think just honoring both sides of that. So I wanted to bring that approach. And I also wanted to do something that's obviously traditional but I knew that we would do it in a way that is unique and unconventional. And we did that with starting by going to Miami. -So you're doing it from Miami? -From Miami. -That's going to be a party. -I don't like to be cold. That's why I'm in this. I packed for your studio. -Yes. -And so that was one of the things I thought all these other shows, people are going to have on big coats. Everyone is going to be shaking and freezing and then I'm going to have no clothes on per usual. [ Laughter ] He'll be funny and I'll be naked, and together, we got a show. [ Cheers and applause ] -Oh, my God. That's a promo right there. -It's perfect. -You've done Times Square before on New Year's. -Yes. -I remember seeing you perform. -So I had -- Yeah, I was a little scarred from that because this was in my day of wearing the Hannah wig. -Yeah. -And it rained and then it was, like, hailing and snowing, and actually, you know, like, when you've seen the -- like, a kid getting their tongue stuck to the telephone pole or something. That happened but with my wig. It got iced to my skin. It got frozen to my head from it being so cold outside. -How did you get it off? -I had to wait until it melted. -Holy moly! -My mom just was like... [ Heavy breathing ] ...on my head until I could get the wig off. -Oh, my gosh. -Yeah. -Pete, how did you get the [bleep] off your shoulder? [ Laughter ] -I went... [ Cheers and applause ] -That's interesting. -That's not exactly what happened. -Miley, you're also overseeing all the musical performances. -Yes. -Which I think you have, like Questlove, have a encyclopedic brain when it comes to music. -Yeah, we share a lot of the same love for the same artists too, which is why I was so excited to perform with the Roots, but, yes, because I -- -You love music. You know everything. -I was telling you that I actually have my Spotify -- You know, they tell you what you've been listening to throughout the year and who you listen to the most. It said that I listen to 97% more music than the average user. -Human. -Yeah. So I listen to a lot of music all the time and I'm just constantly discovering. But what's fun is to discover something that's older that I can kind of reinvent and introduce to my audience who wouldn't know some of these songs. So I'm -- That's one of the things I'm most excited about is this show is -- yes, it's kind of a variety show because there will be so much variety and artistry and I don't think one genre is better or more genuine than another. I think that there's a space for all of it and I want to celebrate and honor all of it. -Mix it up. -Yeah. -Pete, last time you were on our show, you told me that you were taking singing lessons. -Ha! [ Laughter ] -Are you still taking the lessons? -Yeah, yeah, kind of, yeah. -Yeah. And will you, maybe, sing on New Year's Eve? -Absolutely not. No. [ Laughter ] -Even by midnight? Closer to midnight? No? -Maybe, maybe. -Alright, okay. Alright, very good. Pete Davidson, Miley Cyrus.
