It may be on past her bedtime, but that's not going to stop Hollywood prodigy Willow Smith from whipping her hair at Dick Clark's annual New Year's Eve bash.
Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve has revealed its top guests to PEOPLE, and they include La Roux, Ne-Yo and Natasha Bedingfield, in addition to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's 10-year-old daughter.
Millions tune in every year to watch the iconic ball drop. Clark, 81, has served as producer and host of the ABC broadcast nearly every New Year's Eve since 1972.

Willow Smith may have become a household name overnight with the success of her catchy tune, "Whip My Hair," but that doesn't mean the charismatic performer is above the rules.
"I can't do whatever I want," Smith, 10, a self-proclaimed fan of Billy Idol and Lady Gaga, says in the December issue of W. "Mommy has to say it's okay."
But Smith doesn't complain about having to follow guidelines set by her famous parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Instead, she credits mom and dad for her rise to fame.

She may be new to television – but "Whip My Hair" singer Willow Smith got a warm (and safe) welcome from Ellen DeGeneres during a visit to her daytime show, set to air Tuesday.
Yes, the talk show host was bearing gifts for the young fashionista – specifically a customized neck brace, stamped with her image.
"Because you have such great style, I want to make sure if you do ever hurt your head, you will be in style," DeGeneres told Will Smith's 9-year-old daughter during the interview. "You can wear a neck brace."
Hopefully she'll never need it – but Smith obviously got the joke, and the young singer slipped on the accessory. Said DeGeneres: "You can wear that on all your tours."

She whips it – and whips it good!
PEOPLE has your first look at scenes from 9-year-old Willow Smith's music video for her infectious first single, "Whip My Hair." The daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith filmed the video in Sylmar, Calif., in September with director Ray Kay – who has also helmed clips for Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Beyoncé.
In the video, which debuts on BET on Monday (the single hits iTunes Oct. 26), the pint-sized singer – who is signed to Jay-Z's record label – gets playful with her wardrobe and some paint, and joins guest stars ranging in age from 1 to 85 who, you guessed it, whip their hair back and forth for the cameras.
