The "start your new year right" meme started earlier this month, before gaining widespread attention. It picked up some steam thanks to Phil Collins.

"This year we are anxious to see Mariah come back," Seacrest said. "We are really not in control. This is so different than doing a show on stage or in a theater or in an arena. You are in Times Square … [Read more...] about Ryan Seacrest ‘Anxious’ Over Mariah Carey’s Return to ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’
