Last year, Mayor Bloomberg kissed Lady Gaga when 2012 arrived. This year, Bloomberg will be joined by 18 Rockettes for the Times Square New Year's festivities. Bloomberg told WOR radio host John Gambling that he'll "have to figure out" how to kiss all of them. Hey, it's a job—and guess Bloomberg's official Instagrammer will have to brush up on collages!

Bloomberg pointed out that the Rockettes are "a big part of the reason people come to New York City. Their Christmas spectacular has just been unbelievable over the years.”

The Rockettes are celebrating their 85th anniversary this year. Check out some photographs of them now and then (here's our previous look back), plus this video of their precision dancing:
