Canadian singer Avril Lavigne will spend the last day of 2011 with fans in China.
Lavigne will headline a star-studded concert held by China's Jiangsu Satellite TV to mark the arrival of the New Year, the broadcaster has announced.
The show will be held on December 31 in the city of Nanjing where Jiangsu Satellite TV has its headquarters.
Lavigne will arrive in China on December 30, according to the show's chief director, Zhang Yedi.
The show's lineup also includes Chinese music heavyweights Jonathan Lee and Wakin Chau, as well as pop stars Nicholas Tse and Rene Liu.
As China's regional TV stations compete for audience ratings, inviting international stars to their New Year's galas has become a common practice. Last year, Jiangsu Satellite TV claimed to have invited Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle, who failed to show up in the end.
