No matter what you have planned for your own 2013 experience, there is one thing you can count on: it will not be free of Taylor Swift. The 22-year-old singer/songwriter will officially be performing at the upcoming incarnation of the annual New Year’s Rockin’ Eve show, hosted for the first time by Ryan Seacrest (who is inheriting the position from the late Dick Clark). Seacrest himself confirmed Swift’s inclusion in the show on Twitter:
Confirmed: @taylorswift13 will perform on New Years Rockin’ Eve! Unconfirmed: Who she’ll kiss at midnight.

The young performer has earned a spot performing at the American Music Awards, and continues to release mystifying and question-raising numbers like “Red” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (the latter of which spawned a hilarious Breaking Bad-related parody).
