Fox is ringing in the new year with several of its biggest stars.

Empire's Jussie Smollett and Yazz, along with the series' executive music producer Timbaland, will perform on the network's Pitbull's New Year's Revolution, Fox announced Wednesday.

Additionally, Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and World's Funniest Falls host Terry Crews will co-host the live telecast with daytime star Wendy Williams.

Other newly announced performers include Puff Daddy and the Family, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Prince Royce, Austin Mahone, R. City, Pia Mia and Earth, Wind & Fire.

The special reunites Pitbull (real name: Armando Christian Perez) and Smollett, who performed together on Empire earlier this season.

This is the latest piece of Empire cross-promotion on Fox. Earlier this month, stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson hosted their own Christmas special. Smollett and Yazz also performed on Fox's Teen Choice Awards back in August.

Broadcast from Miami's Bayfront Park, Pitbull's New Year's Revolution kicks off at 8 p.m. ET (tape-delayed PT) before cutting to the local news at 10 p.m. The event then returns at 11 p.m.-12:30 a.m.
