“Snooki” Ball to Ring in New Year's Eve for MTV

Snooki is friggin’ dropping from a ball in Times Square for New Year’s.

The pint-sized “Jersey Shore” starlet will cap a year of pop-culture dominance by being lowered from a ball to ring in 2011 as part of MTV’s “New Year’s Bash” special, The Associated Press reported.

Besides Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, other “Jersey Shore” castmates are set to crash MTV’s party as well.

They’ll lead the crowd in fist-pumping as part of an attempt to break a Guinness World Record, according to reports.

The hour-long Whitney Cumming-hosted event will also include “Shore’s” Pauly D as DJ, and feature two performances by Flo Rida.

"Jersey Shore" haters, and old-school ball drop enthusiasts, can take refuge over at ABC for Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.

The Ryan Seacrest, Dick Clark and Fergie-hosted event boasts performances by Ne-Yo, Willow Smith and Avril Lavigne, among others.
