Paul Anka Performs New Year's Eve In Time's Square


This year, the iconic Times Square New Year's Eve ball has gotten a bit of a makeover. 

Organizers unveiled a new bow tie lighting pattern that will sparkle over Times Square. The pattern is made from two triangles shining together to make the shape. If you didn't know, Times Square was once known as "the bow tie."

The new design ties Times Square to this year's sponsor partner the Fontainebleau, which just opened a new hotel in Las Vegas. The brand is also celebrating the 70th anniversary of its Miami Beach resort.

"The original architect Morris Lapidus is who was known for wearing bow ties and putting bow ties in the floor of our lobby in Miami Beach, which we've carried through in the design of our new hotel in Las Vegas which just launched," explained Fontainebleau Development president Brett Mufson. 

The connection comes through even clearer with a planned performance by Paul Anka, famous for his own classic hits like "Put Your Head On My Shoulder" and "Lonely Boy", and for writing Frank Sinatra's signature song "My Way".
