MTV Orders Up ‘Miley-Sized’ New Year’s Special

MTV will wrap up 2008 with FNMTV Presents: A Miley-Sized Surprise…NewYear’s Eve 2009 featuring a live countdown from New York City’s Times Square and special live performances from Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus as she hosts the show from a lucky fan’s home.

After Miley surprises the lucky fan by showing up on her doorstep, they'll spend the day hanging out together, participating in activities for the fan's favorite charity, and visiting with friends, network officials said.

The party continues from MTV's Times Square studio, which will host performances from All Time Low, The Academy Is... and Kevin Rudolf. Emceeing from the MTV studios will be Aussie twin duo of Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, better known as “The Veronicas,” who will be on hand to interview the show's performers and revel in the night's festivities.

In addition, MTV and Pepsi are closing out the final hours of 2008 by engaging viewers in a live text-to-screen dialogue about how they plan to refresh themselves and the world in 2009. People in Times Square can text NYE to 66333 to submit messages that may appear on MTV's HD Times Square Screen, MTV 44 1/2, and TV viewers can text CHANGE to 66333 for the chance that their comments will appear on a crawl at the bottom of the television programming throughout MTV's New Year's Eve shows.

FNMTV Presents: A Miley-Sized Surprise...New Year's Eve 2009 is executive produced by Summer Strauch and Nancy McDonald. Matthew Parillo is executive in charge of production for the special.
