Those who flock to Times Square to see the ball drop on New Year’s Eve will see a familiar face leading the countdown: Lady Gaga. Mayor Michael Bloomberg picked the Mother Monster to helm the evening’s festivities, which are expected to draw over one million people.

Lady Gaga’s New Year’s Eve responsibilities don’t end at leading the countdown. She’ll also perform on “Dick Clark‘s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2012″ and appear on a telecast of the Japanese special “Kohaku Uta Gassen.”

Other notable figures who’ve led the New Year’s Eve countdown in Times Square include Bill and Hilary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani and Muhammad Ali.
