Tate Stevens Takes Phillip Phillips’ Place on FOX New Years Live!

Due to a scheduling change, Phillip Phillips will no longer be playing Fox’s New Year’s Eve Live!, but while the special loses an American Idol winner, it adds an X Factor champ, Tate Stevens. Whoo hoo. Hm.

Marlon Wayons has been added as host to the 90 minute broadcast, originating from the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Lifehouse and Carmen Electra will also perform. Fox’s cameras will also cut to the ball drop in New York City’s Times Square at midnight.

So instead of Phillip performing “Gone Gone Gone”, we’ll have Tate Stevens regurgitating one of his boring X Factor covers instead? Ugh. Do I really need to cap this?
