As every year, one million people gathered in Times Square in New York City, USA, on New Year's Eve to watch the iconic Christmas ball drop as the clock struck midnight.

Ahead of the night's events, thousands of people lined up from early in the morning to get a good spot for the night's festivities. Thousands of people filled the Times, the largest square in the city.

Grammy award-winning singer Megan Thee Stallion, Flo Rida, Maria Becerra, Yng Lvcas, Paul Anka and many other artists performed at the New Year's Eve party in Times Square.

Rita Ora was one of the presenters and interviewers on stage. A million people piled into Times Square for hours, creating mountains of trash with massive amounts of confetti and New Year's accessories.

When the celebrations ended after midnight, the square was left to the cleaning workers.

200 sanitation workers were on hand to clean up the filth on the streets of New York City.
