Celebs are getting their party on this New Year's Eve.

Of course, NYC's biggest bash takes place in Times Square, and a bevy of the hottest names in pop music will be on hand to perform before the ball drops - Taylor Swift, Psy, Carly Rae Jepsen, Train and Neon Trees.

The ladies of that bunch should take note: Last year, Lady Gaga doled out a midnight smooch to Mayor Michael Bloomberg in Times Square, begging the question: Any takers for 2013?

Nas is also hitting the stage this NYE, playing a 9 p.m. concert at Radio City Music Hall. Afterward, New Yorkers can party alongside the rapper as he hosts a soiree at Meatpacking District hotspot The Dream Downtown, where tix start at $150/head and include an open bar.

A little further uptown, "Jersey Shore" star Vinny Guadagnino is hosting a party produced by Joonbug.com at AMC 34, which is being transformed from a movie theater to a nightclub, complete with a dance floor, open bar and chow. General admission tickets are $55 each.

Meanwhile, several stars are hitting Sin City to ring in 2013, hosting ticketed soirees that are open to the public.

Kim Kardashian is hosting at the club 1OAK (though there's no word yet if her beau Kanye West will join her), Nicki Minaj is at Pure, Ice-T and wife Coco are at LAX and Brandy is hosting at LAVO.
