In addition to the three main urban locations, Roselyn Sánchez was holding down the fort in Puerto Rico, where Dady Yankee would be performing ahead of a Spanish-language countdown.

As the special started this evening, Seacrest made sure to remind the audience at home that everyone on stage had been following strict COVID procedures leading up to the big night. 

‘The crowd might be scaled back,’ Seacrest said, referring to the audience, which was only about a quarter as large as pre-pandemic crowds, but he promised that the ‘energy and enthusiasm are as big as ever.’

In order to keep the performers and crowd as safe as possible, the entertainers were all required to take daily COVID-19 test 

Prior to Carey’s entrance, OneRepublic delivered the first performance of the night with a rendition of their song Counting Stars.
