As we get ready to raise our glasses of champagne and ring in the New Year with a stanza of “Auld Lang Syne,” it’s not only a time to look forward but also a time to reflect on the past. The ’00s brought us a lot of moments we won’t soon forget, including some seriously memorable New Year’s Eve bashes hosted by yours truly, MTV. We had such a good time partying over the past decade, we’re having a hard time picking a favorite moment. Do you have one? Let’s do a little recap to refresh your memory.
Way back in 2001, when boy bands like ‘N Sync and Backstreet Boys still rocked the charts, Lance Bass helped us ring in the New Year. A slew of stars watched the ball drop in 2002 including Jaime Pressly who co-hosted the night with Carson Daly. Willa Ford was there as was O-Town (remember them!?!), Mandy Moore and Ja Rule.
