Joel to join ABC's New Year's Eve lineup

After the ball drops in Times Square, Billy Joel will be the first singer to welcome in 2014 on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest" on ABC, reports.

The telecast will go live to Joel's concert at Brooklyn's Barclays Center at 12:05 a.m. for one song from his New Year's Eve show.

"This should be one of our more memorable New Year's Eves," executive producer Barry Adelman said. "With Miley Cyrus at 11:40 p.m. and Billy Joel at 12:05 a.m., it should be a great, great night."

Blondie, Icona Pop, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Cyrus will perform in New York; Capital Cities, Daughtry, Jason Derulo, Fall Out Boy, Florida Georgia Line, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Enrique Iglesias, Robin Thicke and the Fray perform in Los Angeles.

Seacrest and Jenny McCarthy will be the hosts in Times Square; Fergie hosts the West Coast broadcast.
