Times Square's New Year's Eve celebration will be beaming to the world online via MSN Video this year, Microsoft said.

The live event in Times Square on Dec. 31 begins at 7 p.m. It will include a multistream, multicamera look at numerous performances and celebrations happening in and around the New York City Times Square location.

Three live co-hosts will help online viewers navigate through numerous events and performances in and throughout Times Square. The specially assembled team, positioned for maximum coverage in Times Square, includes Romeo, host of "Romeo on the Radio," which is featured on New York's No. 1 radio station, Z100; award-winning comedian Angela LaGreca, who is seen and heard every morning on "The View"; and Brandi Williams, entertainment reporter and host of "Ultimate Poker Challenge." Romeo, LaGreca and Williams will guide viewers throughout the MSN Video site (msn.com/newyears), assisting them along the way to create their own New Year's Eve program.

The live webcast will include an "all-access backstage pass" to Little Steven's Underground Garage Live at the Hard Rock Cafe, where Steven Van Zandt ("The Sopranos," Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, Sirius Satellite Radio's "Little Steven's Underground Garage") will perform and present the evening's New Year's Eve music performances. Throughout the evening viewers will be able to watch live performances by The Woggles, The Charms, The Chesterfield Kings, The Troggs, The Mooney Suzuki and The New York Dolls.

"We are very excited to be producing this one-of-a-kind view of the ultimate New Year's Eve experience live from Times Square, the most historic and thrilling place to ring in the New Year," said Steve Sterling, executive producer of the MSN Video Times Square New Year's Eve Celebration.
