There are so many ways to celebrate the countdown to midnight on New Year’s Eve. You can go for dinner, head to a party, or spend an arm and a leg at a nightclub to ring in a new year.

Others, like Nicole Richie and Lady Gaga, use New Year’s Eve to perform at big parties that anyone can join — if they can afford the cover. Take a dive into the gallery to see ten of the best.
