She's done the dressed-like-a-guy thing. She's done the egg thing. She's even done the no-makeup thing.

But she hasn't done the Times Square ball-dropping thing – until now.

Getting a (very) early jump on its New Year's plans, ABC announced that Lady Gaga will perform in Times Square on the 40th anniversary version of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2012.

Rockin' Eve will also feature performances from the West Coast, with Fergie once again hosting in Los Angeles.
