This year, TikTok brought some much needed light to a tough 2020. All year long, people turned to TikTok to laugh, share poignant moments from their lives, connect with others, and express themselves creatively. To celebrate the TikTok community, we launched The Year on TikTok, as a recap of the countless ways TikTok brought happiness across the world in 2020. But, despite how much joy we found through TikTok this year, 2021 can't come fast enough. As we say #bye2020 and #welcome2021, we’re so excited to continue celebrating the countless communities thriving on TikTok, which is why we’re throwing an epic New Year's Eve party - virtually, of course.

To ring in the New Year -- from our couches -- TikTok will host an unforgettable countdown lookback of the top global TikTok moments of 2020, both from an Australian POV and a global perspective.

On 31 December at 9:30pm AEDT on the TikTok account, TikTok darlings Brittany Broski and Lil Yachty will kick off the global LIVE festivities, which will feature musical performances, creator sketches, Year on TikTok: Top 100 trend explainers, and special segments for social causes.

Throughout the show, you can expect LIVE performances by Jason Derulo, Saweetie, Aly & AJ, Tai Verdes, and more. For even more fun, there will be special appearances by Cardi B, Mick Fleetwood, Liam Payne, Charli & Dixie D’Amelio, plus others. Excited? Us, too.

But that's not all! The Aussie TikTok community will also be treated to a uniquely antipodean new year's eve special, in the lead-up to the global countdown.

Kick-off your celebrations with the TikTok AU NYE LIVE show, streaming all day on the TikTok Australia page on December 31. Relive all the highlights of 2020 on TikTok in Australia with an epic LIVE show hosted by Angus O'Loughlin, Flex Mami, Dylan Alcott and featuring appearances from Aussie creators including Jimmy Rees, Aimee Massie, Chebbo, Mia Rodriguez and more.
