Elton to be seen on New Year’s Eve special

British pop star Elton John has joined the roster for U.S. TV's New Year's Eve with Carson Daly program, NBC announced Monday.

John's performance of his iconic hit Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me at his Elton John's New Year's Eve Party show at the 02 arena in London will air via satellite on the Carson Daly special.

I can't wait to spend New Year's Eve with my biggest fans in America and the United Kingdom. This will be a fantastic night. I can't think of a better way to see in 2009, John said in a statement.

Also part of the musical lineup for Daly's program are Katy Perry, Ludacris, The Ting Tings and T.I., the network said.
