First Look: Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Lawrence, More Appear On “Late Night With Seth Meyers New Year’s Eve Special”

Kelly Clarkson [NBC]

This Thursday night, NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” will air its last late night episode of 2016.

It will not, however, be the show’s final episode this year.

NBC will air a “Late Night With Seth Meyers New Year’s Eve Special” at 10PM on New Year’s Eve. The special will feature appearances by Jennifer Lawrence, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Leslie Jones. Kate McKinnon, Shaquille O’Neal and presumably others will appear in a New Year’s Resolution segment, while Kelly Clarkson will take the stage for a musical performance.

In advance of the December 31 broadcast, NBC shared first look photos from the recent taping:
