ANDERSON COOPER, CNN ANCHOR: And we are back live in Times Square. Sanjay Gupta is just jumping and breaking --

ANDY COHEN, TV HOST: I love Sanjay Gupta.

COOPER: He's great.

COHEN: That was so cool. That was really cool.

COOPER: You are with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen.

COHEN: Are they rehearsing the ball drop again?

COOPER: Just so you know what's happening, every hour in Times Square they count down that hour.

COHEN: Another, to (inaudible) or time zone?

COOPER: No. No. No. Just to give people here something to do because...

COHEN: Well, certainly they need more to do than that because there are a lot of cold people around. I feel alternately exhilirated and absolutely miserable.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: I can't decide, I mean, I'm actually quite pleasantly warm in my heated clothes which I know was--

COOPER: OK. Good. Mine is starting to heat up.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: We have Keith Urban coming up in this hour; a little bit later, Dave Chappelle and John Mayer.

COHEN: How cool is it for Dave Chappelle and John Mayer --

COOPER: Celine Dion. It's so cool.

COHEN: I know.

COOPER: He just had his two (inaudible) specials just dropped on Netflix. Is that what the tapes say, dropped on Netflix? COHEN: I don't know.

COOPER: I know. They came out today in Netflix.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: More musical stylings of Wolf--

COHEN: Blitzer coming up.

COOPER: Yes, I mean, who knew about Wolf.

COHEN: We also have a lot of party games.

COOPER: We got a lot of party games, (drinking) games for folks at home. Every time Andy says a celebrity oh, we just had a bunch of celebrities so probably a lot of drinks right there.

COHEN: Yes. Yes.

COOPER: So, yes, and then, of course, the big culmination, the stroke of midnight the ball drops and the whole place goes wild.

COHEN: By the way, I love our Britney headsets, don't you?

COOPER: Yes. I knew you would like that. Have you ever seen her in concert?

COHEN: No, I have not. I would like to.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: We are going to do a little clubhouse play house now.

COHEN: OK. Fine. So, explain.

COHEN: OK. Clubhouse playhouse, it's something that we do on Watch What Happens Live where we kind of reenact famous scenes or moments in pop culture, the Housewives or whatever, so first one...

COOPER: OK. From this past year?

COHEN: From this past year. Now, there's a woman named Danielle Bregoli who I'm sure that you covered on 360 a lot, right?

COOPER: Yes. No.

COHEN: She's the "cash me outside" girl.

COOPER: Unfamiliar. Cash me outside?

COHEN: OK. This really happened at the end of 2016 but it made a mark in 2017.

COOPER: OK.

COHEN: 2017 was her year. She's 14 years old.

COOPER: Really?

COHEN: She appeared on an episode of Dr. Phil. The title was "I Want to Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried to Frame Me for a Crime."

COOPER: Wait, this is real?

COHEN: This is real.

COOPER: This happened?

COHEN: I thought Dr. Phil was a little more classy. Anyway, since then, she has gotten a daily show (inaudible) got a lot of time.

COOPER: You got a lot of time.

COHEN: Well, I do a daily show.

COOPER: Well, I know.

COHEN: She now has a multimillion dollar record deal.

COOPER: Are you serious?

COHEN: She changed her name to Bhad Bhabie and she's got like over 10 million Instagram followers; it's crazy. And, I mean, I was really going off on her for most of the year and then I realized she's a 14- year-old girl and it's not nice...

COOPER: Right.

COHEN: To pick on a 14-year-old girl because I was like she has no talent, what's the deal, but she -- oh, thank you -- she actually paid off her mom's...

COOPER: That's right.

COHEN: ... That's so much better...

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: ... her mom's mortgage for Christmas so that's nice.

COOPER: So, what is her claim to fame? I don't know if --

COHEN: Oh, here's the deal. We're going to reenact this iconic scene from the Dr. Phil episode. I will play Danielle.

COOPER: Oh, OK.

COHEN: OK. The "Cash me outside" girl.

COOPER: OK.

COHEN: And then you play Dr. Phil.

COOPER: Oh, OK. Well, hold on let me get my glasses on. Hold on.

COHEN: OK. So wear your glasses; you need your glasses. OK. So, I'm going to start. This is actual dialogue from the Dr. Phil show.

COOPER: OK.

COHEN: "Jail ain't nothing, that's what I always do and they don't catch; ain't nobody going to catch me."

COOPER: "Cause you're too street-wise?"

COHEN: "Yes. And all those ho's laughing like something funny."

COOPER: "Did you say the ho's are laughing?"

COHEN: "Yes."

COOPER: I'm Dr. Phil.

COHEN: Yes, you're Dr. Phil.

COOPER: OK.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: "So the audience are a bunch of ho's?"

COHEN: "Cash me outside, how about that?"

COOPER: "I don't understand what that means."

COHEN: "Cash me outside, how about that?"

COOPER: "Catch you outside, what does that mean?"

COHEN: "What I just said." OK. We have the clip. OK. This is funny.

COOPER: I don't know what it means.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DANIELLE BREGOLI, RAPPER: Jail ain't nothing, that's what I always do and they never catch me; ain't nobody going to catch me.

DR. PHIL, TV HOST: Cause you're too street-wise?

BREGOLI: Yes. And all these ho's laughing like something funny.

BARBARA BREGOLI, DANIELLE'S MOTHER: She's talking at the audience that they're laughing at her.

DR. PHIL: Did you say the ho's are laughing?

BREGOLI: Yes.

DR. PHIL: So the audience are a bunch of ho's?

BREGOLI: Yes. Cash me outside, how about that?

DR. PHIL: Huh?

BREGOLI: Cash me outside, how about that?

DR. PHIL: Catch you outside? What does that mean?

BREGOLI: What I just said.

(END OF VIDEO)

COHEN: Tens of millions of Instagram followers, that's what it took. Then what does that say about our world today, Anderson?

COOPER: She now has a...

COHEN: A record deal. She's known as Bhad Bhabie now.

COOPER: Bhad Bhabie.

COHEN: Bhad Bhabie.

COOPER: Did you work when you were a kid?

COHEN: Did I work when I was a kid?

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: I did work when I was a kid. I had a paper route. I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. I had a paper route.

COOPER: In Clayton, I believe.

COHEN: In Clayton, Missouri. Thank you. Nice that you know, that's nice. And I had a paper route and I loved it. And why don't you tell everybody what you did for a job, because it is my favorite thing.

COOPER: No.

COHEN: Yes, Vanderbilt boy, you're so relatable. What did you do?

COOPER: I was a child model.

COHEN: He was a child model.

COOPER: I was a Ford model.

COHEN: And did you have any of those, at the Ford Modeling we have -- look at that. Oh my God, poor Anderson has to do spring looks today after school. He's so tired. COOPER: I would call up -- after school -- I would call up the agency

and see what go-sees there were and I would go on go-see.

COHEN: OK. We have more newspaper ads -- you were a very cute kid.

COOPER: That was a members-only ad, I believe.

COHEN: Really?

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: You made good.

COOPER: I made $75 an hour.

COHEN: There you are on To Tell the Truth.

COOPER: Yes. I was Wally Naughton, the world's youngest bear trainer.

COHEN: How did that happen?

COOPER: I don't remember. My dad somehow knew somebody and so my brother played a young tennis player and I was Wally Naughton who was the youngest bear trainer.

COHEN: Your parents loved costuming you because you are so (inaudible).

COOPER: I wore costumes pretty much every day of my childhood. Yes. No. That's another ad, that's --

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: For modeling, I think I was like 11, 12, 13. Yes.

COHEN: The timeline is all coming into sequence.

COOPER: Yes. Yes. I'm sure your paper route was really tough though.

COHEN: It was.

COOPER: Yes. In the mean streets of Clayton.

COHEN: Yes, it was.

COOPER: I've been to Clayton. It's a lovely community.

COHEN: It is.

COOPER: I know.

COHEN: So...

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: All right.

COOPER: All right. Fine. I don't know.

COHEN: My face hurts.

COOPER: Yes. Yes. Yes. No.

COHEN: The funny thing is when we said we were going to do this, you kept saying to me it's so cold, it's so cold.

COOPER: Right. You can't understand.

COHEN: But that was before we knew that this was going to be the coldest New Year's Eve on record since like 1962.

COOPER: Right. Yes. I don't know. We should check in with Amy Sedaris in a little bit to find out --

COHEN: Yes. And we're going to have the back (inaudible) she's smoking it up --

COOPER: (inaudible) spotted by the way so in New Orleans which is one of my favorite cities in the world, certainly in America...

COHEN: Wow. I didn't know that.

COOPER: Yes. Stick with me. See, I know some pop culture things.

COHEN: Oh, they're saying Housewives live.

COOPER: Yes, they say Housewives live. They're like, hey, what are you doing here without Dorinda?

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: I'm like I don't know what that means.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: It's a thing.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: Yes. So, it has been a heck of a year on your show, on Watch What Happens Live.

COHEN: Yes. We had a great year.

COOPER: You've had so many great moments this year.

COHEN: We've had a great year and I brought five of my favorite moments that I think that you're going to love because they generated a lot of conversation in the pop culture water cooler world.

COOPER: I feel like every day when I come into my office and I go on the computer that like viral moments have happened from your show.

COHEN: Well...

COOPER: That's what it's about I guess. That's what this is.

COHEN: Yes. It's kind of hard. OK. So, this first one is I dropped my card but I think it is JLo and Ray Liotta playing Plead the Fifth. And take a look because Ray Liotta was very -- he was feeling the (inaudible) that night.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

COHEN: Of all of the leading ladies you've worked with, who was the worst kisser?

JENNIFER LOPEZ, ACTRESS: Who is the worst, he remembers.

RAY LIOTTA, ACTOR: Sigourney.

COHEN: Sigourney.

LOPEZ: This is the worst case in the world.

COHEN: OK. I actually thought he was going to Plead the Fifth on that one to tell you the truth. OK.

Who was the most overrated actor back in the '80s and '90s? You can't say yourself, like what actor was like the buzz that was the most overrated in the '80s and '90s.

LIOTTA: As an actor?

LOPEZ: As an actor.

COHEN: Yes.

LIOTTA: Clint Eastwood probably.

COHEN: OK. Clint Eastwood. Interesting. Maybe your favorite...

(END VIDEO CLIP).

COHEN: I mean, we are all JLo. I couldn't believe. You do have an option to plead the fifth in that game.

COOPER: Wow.

COHEN: It's crazy. Here's the moment where you were on the show and Olivia Wilde was on with you and...

COOPER: Really? You're playing this again.

COHEN: Yes. Let's take a look.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

COHEN: Olivia, you were going to ask Anderson and I trivia questions about each other.

COOPER: Yes.

OLIVIA WILDE, ACTRESS: What is Anderson's biggest turn-on?

COHEN: One, two, three, Latinos.

WILDE: That's real friendship, real friendship.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

COHEN: I actually thought you were not going to speak. Wow. Right. This next one was really when Pink came by the Clubhouse. I love Pink.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: I'm a huge fan of Pink and I asked her about her relationship with Christina Aguilera because there had been talk that they didn't get along in the day, OK?

COOPER: OK.

COHEN: But they do now and they've really famously made up and I think they may be doing a duet this year of something.

COOPER: OK. COHEN: They're working together which is I'm so down for, I'm a huge

Xtina fan. But here's what Pink had to say about the early years with Xtina, OK?

COOPER: OK. Let's watch.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

COHEN: In August, you made some news when you said that you made amends with your alleged feud with Christina Aguilera.

PINK, SINGER: Yes. Yes.

COHEN: How did you two reconcile, and looking back, what was the biggest issue between the two of you?

PINK: We were super young and super new at the whole thing and I think I'm an alpha and she's an alpha and I'm used to taking my altercations physical and she is used to having them verbal and we just are very different. We are very different. And we were very young and new and you have to learn how to, like women have to learn how to support each other. It's not taught to us on the playground.

COHEN: Pink, did you try to get physical with her?

PINK: Actually, she swung on me in a club.

COHEN: In a club.

PINK: Hilarious.

COHEN: Because you're a Philly girl. Because you're a Philly girl, right?

PINK: Yes. I was like what's happening right now? What's happening?

(END VIDEOCLIP)

COOPER: She swung on her?

COHEN: Swung on her in a club.

COOPER: Wow.

COHEN: I almost fainted.

COOPER: Have you ever been punched?

COHEN: No, I've never got -- yes, you just punched me about a minute ago.

COOPER: That was not a punch.

COHEN: Yes. No. Have you ever been in a fight?

COOPER: I got kicked around and punched a little in Egypt but not in a--

COHEN: Yes. This next one was huge, headlines everywhere. This is Patti LuPone who does not give -- she's amazing. I love Patti LuPone. Just take a look. This speaks for itself, whoa.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PATTI LUPONE, ACTRESS: The only thing that Madonna has ever said to me was, I'm taller than you.

COHEN: What did you think of her role in Evita?

LUPONE: Well, I was on the treadmill and I would -- when MTV used to have videos, right?

COHEN: Yes.

LUPONE: And I saw I believe it was Buenos Aires and I thought it was a piece of -- Madonna is a movie killer. She's dead behind the eyes. She cannot act her way out of a paper bag. She should not be in film or on stage. She is a wonderful performer for what she does, but she is not an actress. Bang.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

COOPER: Well, that's not nice.

COHEN: No.

COOPER: I love Madonna.

COHEN: We love Madonna. She (inaudible) pop culture moments from Watch What Happens Live. Here is my...

COOPER: I want Madonna to go on tour again.

COHEN: Me, too. I'm sure it'll happen.

COOPER: I hope so.

COHEN: Yes. Here is my friend John Mayer who is going to be joining us in a little bit with Dave Chappelle from Watch What Happens Live. Take a look.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

COHEN: Did you watch any of Katy Perry's 96-hour live stream?

JOHN MAYER, SINGER: Yes, I did.

COHEN: You did. And what did you think?

MAYER: Well, I think you'd have to watch all 96 hours to come up with a final verdict.

COHEN: To make the full -- yes. Yes. MAYER: I thought it was like yes, she -- when I say that I'm like

that's her thing, man.

COHEN: Yes.

MAYER: Like just to go big and bold and, yes, I checked in with it, like it's definitely odd to watch your ex-girlfriend to sleep.

COHEN: Right.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

COHEN: That was amazing.

COOPER: I didn't understand that.

COHEN: She did this live stream for like 96 hours when her album came out, like she lived in kind of a Big Brother house.

COOPER: Oh, really? Well, I didn't know that.

COHEN: And you could just go online and watch Katy Perry in the house.

COOPER: As you pointed out, in addition Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman who are going to be joining us shortly, John Mayer is going to join us live later with comedian Dave Chappelle who just, two new concerts just got released on Netflix and he's had an incredibly busy year and I'm really happy he's joining us tonight.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: We could not be prouder to have them all joining us. Coming up next, Keith Urban is going to join us with Nicole Kidman. Right now as we go to break, a special shout out to our friends at the Marriott Marquis for the amazing rooftop shot as hundreds of thousands of people get ready to ring in the New Year here at Times Square.

COHEN: That is amazing.

COOPER: CNN's New Year's Eve live coming right back.

(COMMERCIAL)

COOPER: That was the scene in London, England ringing in the New Year a couple of hours ago. Nice to see.

COHEN: Gorgeous.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: I'm so into The Crown, by the way.

COOPER: Oh my God, The Crown is really good. I like binge-watched it all.

COHEN: It's the best.

COOPER: Yes. Let's bring our royal watcher, Richard Quest, up here.

Richard?

COHEN: Hey, Richard.

COOPER: How are you doing?

COHEN: We need (inaudible) on the royal wedding.

RICHARD QUEST, CNN INTERNATIONAL ANCHOR: What would you like to know?

COHEN: Everything.

COOPER: So, it is going to be like the last royal wedding we saw?

QUEST: No, of course. Don't be ridiculous.

COOPER: Why?

QUEST: Because that was Westminster Abbey and the heir to the throne.

COOPER: Oh, they're not doing Westminster Abbey?

QUEST: No. It's St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. And it's going to be a much smaller event. It's still going to have a couple of thousand people but it won't be as big and, of course, there's a big fuss at the moment over what Prince Harry said.

COHEN: About whether Obama will be invited to the wedding?

QUEST: No. About Meghan Markle's family.

COOPER: I don't know, what.

QUEST: He said that because Meghan Markle spent Christmas with the queen and Harry said that she spent it with a real family, in other words the royal family. And now her family...

COOPER: Oh. What does that mean? You've got the --

QUEST: Ticked is not the word, the father, the brother, the --

COOPER: Oh. Have they said something?

QUEST: Absolutely, (inaudible).

COOPER: No.

QUEST: OK. What Prince Harry said was, well, it was nice of her to have a real family.

COOPER: Oh my God.

QUEST: And now her father is saying well, she's got a real family, why am I wearing a hat and you're not, real man don't wear hats.

COHEN: They do, I'm freezing.

COOPER: Well, I didn't know that happened.

COHEN: That is major that happened.

QUEST: I'm bearing gifts.

COOPER: What is that?

QUEST: What you mean? Don't you sneer at my cupcakes.

COOPER: They're very nice. I don't know-

QUEST: Look at these cupcakes.

COHEN: They're impossible to eat right now.

COOPER: I mean, they look wonderful. Unfortunately they're frozen because they're out here.

COHEN: I brought pizza through Times Square. By the time I got in the hotel we were in--

QUEST: All these people here are having pizza delivered.

COOPER: Is that right?

QUEST: Excuse me, Dominos will deliver. You tell them whereabouts in the crowd you are and they deliver. You're cold, aren't you?

COOPER: Thank you. Wow.

COHEN: And they see 360.

QUEST: And they see 360.

COOPER: There you go. Thanks.

QUEST: (inaudible).

COOPER: We're going to be hearing from Richard throughout the night who's being a very good sport in helping us talk us to talk to folks in the crowd, one highlight thing happened just moments ago and it might need some explanation. Are we doing this or where are we going, do you know? I'm not even sure.

All right. We don't have a lot of big musical performances. We have Keith Urban coming up in just a second and Wolf Blitzer is doing some songs throughout the evening.

COHEN: Oh, I love him.

COOPER: And here's another Wolf Blitzer hit. Wolf? WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: Anderson and Andy, good evening once again.

I'm Wolf Blitzer and this is another edition of Wolf Blitzer Sings the Hits of 2017.

Andy, Watch What Happens Live when I harmonize on this Selena Gomez hit. I'm not surprised. I sympathize. I can't deny your appetite. You got a fetish for my love. I push you out and you come right back. Don't see a point in blaming you. If I were you, I'd do me too."

That's right. That was Fetish by Selena Gomez, featuring Gucci Mane, that's a classic. I'm Wolf Blitzer. And this has been Wolf Blitzer Sings the Hits.

COOPER: There you go.

COHEN: That was...

COOPER: The more you know.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: I'm very excited about who's about to join us. An amazing musician.

COHEN: A real musician.

COOPER: Yes. A real musician. We want to go live now to Nashville where we have a special guest joining us. The chart-topping Grammy winner, mega star Keith Urban is joining us along with Nicole Kidman.

Thank you so much for being with us, Happy New Year.

KEITH URBAN, NEW ZEALAND COUNTRY MUSIC SINGER: Happy New Year, Anderson, you too Andy and you too Wolf. I wish I actually got to hear you sing.

BLITZER: Oh my God, yes. It's surreal.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No. Believe me, you don't want to do that with Wolf Blitzer. We are so excited to broadcast one of your concerts--

URBAN: Hey (inaudible).

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, exactly. You're right. You have to close for a long, long time.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes.

COOPER: What are you both looking forward to most in 2018?

URBAN: We're looking forward to what, baby?

NICOLE KIDMAN, AUSTRALIAN ACTRESS: I'm...

COHEN: Did we lose it?

COOPER: Oh, (inaudible).

COHEN: I was dying to know what she was looking forward to, Nicole Kidman is an angel. I mean I'm looking forward to more Big Little Lives, this is a cliffhanger.

COOPER: Okay. We'll go back to them in just a second. We'll get that worked out. We want to take a moment to pay tribute to some people who might not be household names, but whose work means the world to so many, our CNN Heroes.

The year maybe coming to a close but there are still time to help them get a great start for 2018. If you saw our Heroes program, you know how amazing they all are. And this year, they're all small organizations who can really use the help, Subaru continues to make dollar for dollar matching contributions up to $50,000 to each CNN Hero.

They'll be doing it through next Sunday, to make a tax deductible contribution just go to cnnheroes.com and click the "Donate" button.

COHEN: By the way, you still have two and a half hours in this year to make your charitable contributions.

COOPER: All right. We're going to take a quick break. We're going to bring back Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman.

COHEN: I can't believe that this happened.

COOPER: We'll be right back.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

COOPER: Hey, Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, back here in Time Square. Let's go back to singer Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman who are joining us.

Keith? Nicole? Are you both there? Yes, you are. I'm so sorry for that.

COHEN: All right, guys.

COOPER: That's so ridiculous...

URBAN: Yes.

COHEN: It was a cliffhanger. What are you most looking forward to in 2018?

URBAN: Well, staying on the satellite. That's the first thing I'm looking forward to.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes.

URBAN: And what are you looking forward to?

KIDMAN: I'm just looking forward to all working together to make this world a better place.

COOPER: Yes.

KIDMAN: Unity and being together.

COOPER: Absolutely.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: Yes.

KIDMAN: Helping each other.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: Yes.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Operating on a higher plane.

COHEN: And more Big Little Lies.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes.

COHEN: And more Big Little Lies.

KIDMAN: Actually, yes, we will be having more Big Little Lies.

URBAN: Yes.

COHEN: Yes.

KIDMAN: Yes, there will be.

COHEN: Yes. I got to say you both have...

KIDMAN: We'll be getting back down to it in March. Yes.

COHEN: You both have had such great years. Nicole, Big Little Lies was so amazing. The Beguiled is my favorite movie of the year. You were so, so good in that movie. And I just think it's such a great movie and I hope everybody goes out and sees it in the new year.

KIDMAN: Thank you. Well, that's all Sofia Coppola.

COHEN: What did the two of you...

KIDMAN: The darling Sofia.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: What did the two of you give each other for Christmas? What did you give each other for Christmas?

KIDMAN: It's just kind of cool. It folds up.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh those are great. KIDMAN: Very cool, and he really wanted it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes.

KIDMAN: Yes, right?

URBAN: I gave Nic a backpack, some amazing jewelry, and then things we can't talk about.

KIDMAN: And...

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh.

COOPER: Do you all make New Year's resolutions?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Nice.

KIDMAN: Yes. I sort of do. I think them. And I mean...

KUNIDENTIFIED MALE: That's about as far as they go.

KIDMAN: So you're talking to -- what is the degrees here? It's minus 10 or something...

URBAN: Yes, we lost the signal before because once it goes below 80 degrees Fahrenheit minus, the signal drops out.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes.

COHEN: Oh, please, you don't want to talk to us about cold.

KIDMAN: And we were in Sidney for Christmas and we're in Nashville for New Year's Eve.

COHEN: And (inaudible) something. What is it?

COOPER: Amazing.

URBAN: Yes, something like that. Yes.

COHEN: Yes. It is. I have no genitalia.

COOPER: A what?

COHEN: I have no genitalia anymore. It's gone.

COOPER: I-- Jesus. Wow.

COHEN: I don't.

COOPER: Please.

COHEN: I realized it--

URBAN: We'll have to change the spelling of your name now, my God.

COHEN: I'm sorry. I apologize for that. Sorry.

COOPER: Keith, it's already New Years in your home country in Australia. So it's...

URBAN: Yes, it is.

COOPER: That's an amazing one.

URBAN: Yes, yes. We saw the fireworks on the bridge, amazing.

COOPER: 2018?

COHEN: Yes. It was incredible

KIDMAN: Pardon?

COHEN: I apologize my face is frozen so I can't really talk correctly.

KIDMAN: Yes.

URBAN: I know.

COHEN: We are actually freezing alive right now--

KIDMAN: And look at us.

COHEN: Is what's slowly happening. What is the temperature there that you're complaining about it so much? Is it...

URBAN: All I can say is there's only one ball dropping tonight.

KIDMAN: Okay.

(LAUGHTER)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Wow.

COHEN: Keith Urban.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: All right.

KIDMAN: He's getting bad. I'm taking over the microphone now.

COHEN: I love it.

KIDMAN: He's kind of gone way too far and it's freezing cold.

URBAN: Okay.

KIDMAN: And it's freezing cold weather.

COHEN: I have a question for you guys.

KIDMAN: And I have to say, playing guitar in subzero conditions is hard, so give him (prop). UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Okay. Yes. That's good enough.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Wow, thank you.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes.

KIDMAN: Yes.

URBAN: What's the question?

COHEN: You gave Nicole the advice at I think the Oscars to clap with her hands like this, so that she wouldn't damage her jewelry. And did you ever that that became like such a meme? Everybody was talking about it. Did you ever expect that that would become such a thing?

URBAN: Answer that one, baby girl. I mean it's called a logical clap when you don't want to slam your hands together with rings, but what do you want to do? What do you want to...

COOPER: It makes sense.

KIDMAN: I wish that there was more important things to be concerned about or that people were focused on more important things than that sort of clapping, that would be what I would say.

URBAN: Yes. That's right.

COOPER: I agree with that.

COHEN: Okay. Yes, yes.

COOPER: I agree with that.

COHEN: Well, I agree too.

COOPER: We want to wish you both -- we want to wish you both a very...

KIDMAN: But Anderson, can we just show you this beautiful Nashville crowd?

URBAN: Can you guys see the crowd?

COOPER: Absolutely.

COHEN: Yes.

URBAN: I'm telling you Nashville is the place to be.

COHEN: Wow.

URBAN: Oh, my gosh, I just dropped this out.

COHEN: Oh my God, it's 16 degrees in Nashville, by the way.

COOPER: Andy and I were in Nashville -- Andy and I were in Nashville at the Ryman a couple of months ago.

KIDMAN: It's fun here.

URBAN: I can't hear anything now.

COOPER: It's a great, great city. It's a great city and we wish we were there.

URBAN: Can you answer for me?

COOPER: We wish you the best. And we hope you have a very happy and healthy and productive new year. Thank you both so much.

URBAN: Thank you.

COOPER: Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman.

COHEN: Happy New Year.

KIDMAN: And you too. Much love.

COOPER: Happy New Year.

URBAN: Happy New Year to everybody watching. We love you guys.

COOPER: All right. Thank you.

URBAN: Peace and blessings.

KIDMAN: Bye.

COOPER: Thank you. Thanks very much. That was very nice of them to join us.

COHEN: Amazing. That was so cool that Nicole Kidman joined.

I think she just shaded me a little bit.

COOPER: Oh yes. She did. Yes.

COHEN: I guess she's not coming on my show.

COOPER: And more important-

COHEN: Ay yay yay, mama mia.

COOPER: I mean you know--

COHEN: Well, why was that such a bad question about the clapping?

COOPER: Yes, I -- well. It was--

COHEN: You know what? I don't judge your questions and you don't need to judge my question.

COOPER: All right. Speaking of star power, Andy sees plenty of it on Watch What Happens Live.

COHEN: Probably not Nicole Kidman.

COOPER: Not Nicole Kidman.

COHEN: Minus Nicole Kidman.

COOPER: Who else that has not come on?

COHEN: There are many people. But a lot of them this year did come and they shared their resolutions for the New Year. Take a look.

COHEN: I hope you remove the word sweetie from your vernacular.

COOPER: Really? Well, just reduce the use of it, sweetie.

COHEN: Sweeties.

COOPER: I know, sweetie.

COHEN: The funny thing is Andy is doing this, now all of Andy's friends, myself included, use it all the time as well.

COOPER: I know and I got it from Kristin Johnson (ph).

COHEN: Okay.

COOPER: Yes, totally.

COHEN: Here is another one. Try to be a little more low-key while traveling. Okay. What you need to try -- okay, go on.

COOPER: Yes. And the gesticulating with your hand.

COHEN: All right.

COOPER: Lower that down.

COHEN: Okay. You need to deal with your mood swings.

COOPER: I'm a moody traveler.

COHEN: Dark and quiet, stormy nights. Stop pretending you're on your phone, so you don't have to talk to people. Stop stealing my bits from the Housewives reunions. You ended that debate with Hillary and Donald Trump by using my thing which was having them say something nice about each other, which is what I do, when it's going scorched- earth at a housewives reunion and...

COOPER: You think I took that from you.

COHEN: It was a town hall, so that actually came from the audience.

COOPER: Got it.

COHEN: Okay.

COOPER: Yes, yes. COHEN: One of your open houses. You know what my resolution actually

is...

COOPER: What?

COHEN: I want to get off my phone -- I would like to not spend so much time on my phone, like it's...

COOPER: Well, you're on your phone all the time.

COHEN: As are you.

COOPER: No, no, but you tweet, I've pretty much stopped the Twitter.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: And...

COHEN: I would like to take a hammer to my phone and then put it in the fire and then mail it to Apple. I would. Why does Apple have to own me?

COOPER: Well, it's true.

COHEN: It's true.

COOPER: Yes, it's true. It's all, well, I won't get into it, but it's all geared to (inaudible) out of this year. It's all geared to -- I've lost it.

COHEN: No, you haven't--

COOPER: This is what happens.

COHEN: I am dealing with my gloves. I am freezing right here and you got me into this by the way.

COOPER: Let me tell you, I should have - this is my fourth resolution. I would like Andy not to lose focus so much. He just totally shuts down and you saw it happen. You saw it.

COHEN: You know what? My resolution -- actually, you know what my resolution is?

COOPER: What?

COHEN: To get Nicole Kidman on --

COOPER: Well, I don't think you helped. I don't know why you asked that question.

COHEN: I felt that this would be a lighthearted interview.

COOPER: I thought it was so nice to even show up and do it.

COHEN: I know. COOPER: I don't expect it.

COHEN: Oh, my God.

COOPER: Now, you made her feel bad. I mean, I don't know.

COOPER: Yes. What are we talking about now?

COHEN: Instagram.

COOPER: Yes. You do Instagram stories all the time.

COHEN: I love Instagram. I love Instagram stories and...

COOPER: What's funny about Andy is that no matter where he is, he is having fun like he is one of those people...

COHEN: I'm not having that much fun right now as it turns out. I am literally -- my moods, actually speaking of mood swings. I am by second, second in a different mood right now. It is very cold, but we are going to go through the most liked...

COOPER: Yes, but what I'm saying is that...

COHEN: Oh.

COOPER: ... when you are -- anything you do, you make a joyous thing of it.

COHEN: I try to make a party...

COOPER: You walk the dog and you have funny Instagram stories about it.

COHEN: Well, thanks, yes. I try to.

COOPER: We're in an airport for our -- when we're traveling together, which we do like every couple of weekends.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: And like he always enjoys everything he does. It's very nice.

COHEN: Thank you. I appreciate that.

COOPER: It's like what Oprah said about you. What did Oprah say? You carry delight. I mean Oprah said that about you.

COHEN: Honestly, honestly.

COOPER: (inaudible) about you. Yes.

COHEN: So here were the most liked pictures on Instagram of the year. Beyonce's twins pregnancy announcement was the most liked photo on Instagram, 11.2 million likes. COOPER: Wow. Okay.

COHEN: Selena Gomez is all over the top 10. I love Selena Gomez. Her post about her -- she has. Her post about her kidney transplant was the second most liked, 10 million-plus likes. Beyonce's twins birth announcement was the third most liked, 10 million likes. Cristiano Ronaldo's twins being born was the fourth most liked. I love Cristiano Ronaldo.

COOPER: I did not know he had twins.

COHEN: Yes. Now, here are some of our favorite Instagrams of the year. Now, I love this picture of the Hollywood legends watching the eclipse. It was Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen, Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda. It's like the Mount Rushmore of Hollywood.

COOPER: I feel like there's a movie in that.

COHEN: Well, they were shooting a movie.

COOPER: Oh, they were.

COHEN: Yes. They were.

COOPER: Okay.

COHEN: I love that so much. The eclipse was my favorite day of the year.

COOPER: It was very nice.

COHEN: (inaudible).

COOPER: And Jane Fonda, that too, she's great, I like her very much.

COHEN: The eclipse was my favorite day of the year. It was so joyous.

COOPER: It was joyous.

COHEN: It was communal. It was humbling.

COOPER: I know. I know. And I really regretted not actually going and seeing it myself.

COHEN: Oh, I was on a beach. My friends (Graciela) and Amanda, we had the best...

COOPER: Oh, you did?

COHEN: Oh, we saw it. It was amazing. Oprah's bountiful garden. I love Oprah's bountiful garden. She is always Instagraming about her bountiful garden. And she has the greatest produce out of this garden.

COOPER: Wow. (inaudible) garden. COHEN: It's bountiful. Here is Britney Spears' painting, which I love. This is a video with some classical music behind it. They wound up selling the painting for like 10 grand. And I was like, I would have -- I would spend it.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: That's the --

COOPER: Oh, I didn't see that.

COHEN: Did you see Lady Gaga with all five former living U.S. presidents at that--

COOPER: I did see that. Yes.

COHEN: That's an amazing, amazing photo.

COOPER: I know.

COHEN: Like that's the ultimate photo to catch, right?

COOPER: Do you think the presidents knew it was going to happen or she just kind of like wandered in? Was it supposed to be just the presidents or do you think she just kind of...

COHEN: I don't speculate on Lady Gaga's Instagraming. I don't do that.

COOPER: All right.

COHEN: Yes. You should be ashamed of yourself for speculating. Actually, did you see the Lady Gaga documentary?

COOPER: I did. It was really good.

COHEN: It was so good.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: Did you love the moment where Donatella Versace meets George and Barbara Bush at the Super Bowl?

COOPER: I don't remember. Oh, yes, yes, yes.

COHEN: It's so amazing. It's such a random celebrity-

COOPER: Well, you love a random celebrity guest.

COHEN: I love a random.

COOPER: You like a random mix of, I mean, that's what he's trying to do on Watch What Happens Live, a random mix.

COHEN: Yes, exactly. Totally. Yes, totally.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: Oh, my God I am...

COOPER: It's cold.

COHEN: I'm chattering.

COOPER: Yes, it's cold.

COHEN: Wow.

COOPER: It was a good -- yes.

COHEN: You know the good news is that we are not allowed to pee for more four and a half hours.

COOPER: Well, it's the last thing you think about because you're so cold.

COHEN: Again, I have not --

COOPER: Don't need to say that again.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: Don't need to say that again.

COHEN: I have no capability to do that. I have no liquid in me.

COOPER: Okay.

COHEN: I've also got to say -- I've been here for 15 years.

COOPER: The crowd is mellow yes.

COHEN: The crowd is deathly quiet. And they're all here. Normally every like 20 minutes or 10 minutes, people are like wooo. There is none of that. No.

COOPER: They're handing out now things to try to -- that the crowd can play with.

COOPER: Cheering them up?

COHEN: Yes. Like -- yes, they're giving -- oh, they're passing out all these balloons for them to play with.

COOPER: To play with yes.

COHEN: (inaudible). And by the way it works. It seems to be working actually.

COOPER: Yes, well, I think--

COHEN: Everybody is shaking is, so they shake the balloons.

COOPER: Right, yes, yes.

COHEN: It's like Amy Sideris said.

COOPER: People like to toss the balloon around.

COHEN: That's true. Yes.

COOPER: Yes. So much from here and around the country and the world, we have correspondents all over the United States and the biggest names of this year, John Mayer, Dave Chappelle are going to join us. Try not to insult either of them. And Celine Dion, Celine Dion.

COHEN: I will respect Celine Dion.

COOPER: I mean.

COHEN: I will.

COOPER: Plus all the great moments, we're here in Time Square, the ball, Imagine, New York, New York, the fireworks and more, stick around her on CNN's New Year's Eve live, we'll be right back.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

COOPER: Welcome back, New Year's Eve Live.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: The crowd has balloons. They're all kind of popping up a little bit I feel like.

COOPER: Yes, yes, the balloons helped.

COHEN: Maybe dropped a couple of degrees.

COOPER: It is. Also, it's 4 minutes to 10, so they're going to count down to 10 o'clock in a few minutes.

COHEN: But there's nothing happens.

COOPER: Nothing happens, but it gives, it revs people up here.

COHEN: Good point. Are the people dumb?

COOPER: Nobody is dumb, it just -- there is nothing else for them to do. They've been penned in, so they, the group, Times Square. They try to entertain people as much as possible.

COHEN: They count down every hour?

COOPER: Every hour they count down.

COHEN: How quickly does this place clean out?

COOPER: That's--

COHEN: 12:07 are we talking?

COOPER: 12:15, 12:20, it's cleared out. 12:20, 12:25, it's -- like when we leave...

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: ....at 12:30.

COHEN: There will be no one.

COOPER: Except some very shady characters.

COHEN: Oh, good.

COOPER: Yes, yes.

COHEN: Are you seeing anybody? Now, it's the time.

COOPER: By the way, that's Andy's other...

COHEN: Well, I stole that from Amy Sideris.

COOPER: Okay.

COHEN: Everything is stolen. Now, it's the time on New Year's Eve where we play trash or pass, okay. So trash means good riddance. Pass means it's green lit for the New Year. Anderson and I are going to make these decisions jointly. They are elements that have happened...

COOPER: And you could play along with us at home.

COHEN: Well, sure, absolutely.

COOPER: Whether you want this thing to be trashed and disappear. Okay, 280 characters on Twitter.

COHEN: I am so over Twitter right now, I mean it's a vat, it's a cauldron of hate.

COOPER: It's toxic, toxic.

COHEN: So yes, trash. Just what we need, more words on Twitter.

COOPER: Yes, yes. I'm totally -- yes, trash.

COHEN: The eclipse.

COOPER: Oh my God.

COHEN: Magical. I want every day to be an eclipse.

COOPER: I know.

COHEN: There were moments when the eclipse happened like that people were screaming and were crying.

COHEN: Where were you?

COOPER: I was in my office.

COHEN: Oh, my God.

COOPER: I know.

COHEN: Sometimes...

COOPER: But I was watching it on CNN and our coverage was really good. We had a really good --

COHEN: Yes, I don't doubt it. Yes.

COOPER: To be in it.

COHEN: I know.

COOPER: Yes, I mean, I (inaudible).

COHEN: Mariah Carey working out in heels. Now, I feel that there should be an every year occurrence.

COOPER: Of course, why...

COHEN: Okay. Good.

COOPER: Why wouldn't she work out in heels?

COHEN: Okay, good, all right. What about RompHims, the male rompers? Now, I am over these. I do happen to have one.

COOPER: You have one.

COHEN: I have a couple as a matter of fact.

COOPER: I remember, by the way, you rocking a male romper.

COHEN: RompHim. Yes.

COOPER: (inaudible), yes.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: (inaudible) but a romper, yes. I remember you had one before I even heard about them.

COHEN: Yes. Yes.

COOPER: Oh. That's, but I'd say trash.

COHEN: Yes.

COHEN: What about, did you actually ever wear it out somewhere? I mean that's (inaudible).

COHEN: No. I kind of wore it at home.

COOPER: Right, and so you Instagrammed it.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: Yes. Show off your legs.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: He's very proud of his legs unlike my Chicken Little.

COHEN: Is love dead, Anderson? We had so many couples breaking up last year.

COOPER: I know. It was sad actually.

COHEN: Sad.

COOPER: Nice couples.

COHEN: Yes. So we don't want -- we want love to live.

COOPER: We want love to live.

COHEN: Yes. The Mooch, do we want more Mooch next year?

COOPER: I think the Mooch is here to stay.

COHEN: You think the Mooch is here to stay.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: He was on CNN I think earlier tonight.

COOPER: Really? (inaudible) in every interaction, he's been nothing but nice with me.

COHEN: Okay. Well, I didn't say that he was...

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: Fidget spinners.

COOPER: I feel like they're going to disappear anyway. I don't think we need to make a ruling on that.

COHEN: Yes, yes.

COOPER: I don't understand them.

COHEN: Yes.

COOPER: Yes.

COHEN: The Katy Perry, Taylor Swift feud. Done. I think it's truly done and we will not hear a word about it in 2018.

COOPER: Okay.

COHEN: That's my hope.

COOPER: Okay. Are they friends or?

COHEN: No. I mean, who knows. It's too complicated. Hairy chest bathing suits, did you see those?

COOPER: What is that?

COHEN: These are -- okay, bathing suits that have -- oh now, they're counting down. This is the fake countdown? Everyone does get very excited. They're counting down to 10 o'clock?
