LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Country-pop star Taylor Swift will ring in the New Year in the United States as the headline act on TV special "New Year's Rockin' Eve," which will feature a two-hour tribute to late host Dick Clark, organizers said on Friday.

Swift, whose new album "Red" racked up more than 1 million copies in first week U.S. sales, will perform live in New York's Times Square on December 31, just before the ball drops to bring in 2013.

The New Year's Eve music special for ABC television was hosted for four decades by legendary TV and music producer Clark before his death in April at age 82.

This year the show will be helmed again by Clark's recent co-host - "American Idol" host and radio DJ Ryan Seacrest - under the title "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest," ABC and dick clark productions said.

The evening will kick off with a two-hour tribute to the host of TV dance show "American Bandstand" that will feature clips of Clark's long career, and remembrances by musicians and industry celebrities.

The 5-1/2 hour show will also feature other musical guests, yet to be announced, and report on New Year celebrations around the globe. (Reporting By Jill Serjeant; Editing by Eric Walsh)
