The twosome will ring in 2018 from Times Square in NY on CNN's "New Year's Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen" on Sunday, December 31.

Andy added, "I've been friends with Anderson for twenty-five years. We've traveled the world together and performed in 30-plus cities with "AC2" and it's all led to this one huge night!"
