Dat Lil' Chico is the new Dick Clark.

The Cubano rapper born Armando Christian Perez will host Pitbull's New Year's Revolution, an end-of-the-year fiesta broadcasting all across los Estados Unidos from Miami on Fox.

"The world needs to get ready to un-mute New Year's Eve, because we are taking the party from the Big Apple to the Pineapple," Pit says in an official statement. "New Year's Eve is officially in Miami and hosted by yours truly, Mr. Worldwide."

Robin Thicke says, "I know you want it." And by it, he means 2014.

Do you even remember what you did on New Year's Eve? If you had any fun, the answer should be an awkward "Umm, maybe?"

We here at Crossfade know how it goes, so we're here to remind you. In the case that you attended these superfancy events (but perhaps don't remember), you may recognize yourself in some of the pictures. In the case that you didn't, we can all just play pretend.

Here is a recap of how Miami welcomed 2014, in pics.

The Weeknd Rings in 2014 With Tainted Love Songs at the Delano South Beach

Via instagram.com/AbelXO

There are only two ways to properly celebrate New Year's Eve. Snuggled up all cozy with the family. Or drinking with strangers on South Beach, wandering the streets, looking for the next open bar.

Of course, we here at Crossfade chose the beach and the booze. Especially when we heard that The Weeknd would be doing a special 2014 countdown performance at the Delano Hotel.

We popped champagne, we did the damn thing, and son provided a beautiful soundtrack.

Pharrell and Afrojack's NYE 2014 Party at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach

Last year was a sequel of sorts to Pharrell Williams' deluxe coffee table book Places and Spaces I've Been, in that the influential producer-crooner made cameos in a number of 2013's most significant pop cultural moments, as if he were a music industry version of Woody Allen's Zelig.

His catalog has always been a mix of lawless bangers dappled with dirt and stardust (see Neptunes) and sex songs characterized by a put-on sensuality belying a freakier undercurrent (see his daring and underrated 2006 solo album In My Mind, which crossed polite come-ons with unfiltered id).

So it makes sense that perhaps his smoothest year, pop culture-wise, would be a song about exploring (questionably worded) boundaries with your lover on "Blurred Lines" and staying up all night to "Get Lucky."

Only 13 parties? That's sooo last year.

With the passing of NYE after NYE, it becomes necessary, if you're just as addicted to bubbly and ball drops as Crossfade, to increase the number of hotel galas, megaclub blowouts, and downtown throwdowns on your personal end-of-year itinerary. It's called self-improvement, party people.

So in the spirit of always raging harder, here are Miami's 14 best New Year's Eve 2014 parties.

NYE-Gone-Wild Stories From Miami

Photo by Laurie Charles
This wild Kitty and his friend end every year with a bang. Pun intended.

Oh, New Year's Eve ...

A time for reminiscing about the victories and failures of the past year, celebrating the fresh arrival of a new one, and, if you're anything like the party animals at the Vagabond, getting piss drunk.

It was the last Friday of 2013 and the downtown club was throwing a Sith-Mas holiday bash. As Darth Vader, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca made their arrival, Star Wars freaks shared some New Year's Eve memories. Or lack thereof.

Here are four NYE-gone-wild stories as told by Miami's Siths, Jedis, and fierce Kitties.

Hip-hoppin' on television.

Hip-hop will never die. And neither will "Rappers Delight," the song made famous in part by rap pioneers Wonder Mike and Master Gee.

As 2014 descends on Miami, The Stage will feature that pair, and their homie HenDogg, performing as Rappers Delight, alongside Suenalo, for a concert and party to bring in the New Year.

We here at Crossfade caught up with Wonder Mike, Master Gee, and HenDogg via conference call to find out what they think about Kanye West, Bob Sinclar, and the current state of hip-hop.

Tracy Young: "New Year's Eve Is for Amateurs"


It was just a few hours before midnight on New Year's Eve 2002, and the woman who'd DJed Madonna's wedding could not find parking. She had rejected multiple offers to play NYE parties in other cities, because she -- Tracy Young -- and her friends had decided that celebrating together on South Beach would be a better time.

But after fighting with SoBe's infamous traffic, turning down expensive hangout options, and ultimately missing the New Year's countdown, Tracy and crew realized they'd been wrong.

"I ended up at a friend's house, and I said, 'You know, we should create the NYE experience during the day,'" Young remembers. And thus, the world-renowned Genesis New Year's Day party was born.
