See How Celebrities Spent New Year’s Eve and Welcomed in 2016

From Demi Lovato to Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande

Like everyone else, celebrities brought in 2016 on Thursday night. Well, maybe not quite like everyone else.

Here’s a look at how a few of them celebrated New Year’s Eve.

Pop princess Ariana Grande and her brother Frankie marked their family celebration with a selfie.

We love you and hope your 2016 is ALREADY off to a GRANDE start! 🎉🎉🎉 #newyearseve #2016 #happynewyear

She also posted a funny video with fellow celebs Billie Lourde and Keke Palmer doing what sounds like a helium-fueled take on R. Kelly’s 2003 R&B classic “Ignition.”

Actress Diane Kruger, meanwhile, didn’t really have too much cause for celebration. Two days ago, she announced on her Instagram that she was suffering from an undisclosed illness and appeared far from better on the big night.
