Snooki's the belle of the ball.

Jersey Shore's one-name wonder plans to steal herself away from the clubs long enough this New Year's Eve to curl up inside a ball dropping in New York City's Times Square as the clock ticks down to midnight.

Watch out, Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest. You've got company.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, the pint-size star's stunt at MTV's Times Square headquarters on Broadway is part of the cable network's hourlong New Year's Bash. Hosted by funnylady Whitney Cummings, the special recalls the highlights of 2010 and features a performance by Flo Rida.

Snooki's castmates, among them Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, will be on hand to cheer her on. They will also lead the thousands packing the square in a mega-fist-pumping chant in a bid to break a Guinness world record for the largest number of people fist-pumping. (They've got records for everything, don't they?)

This is probably one ball the 23-year-old Snooki, aka Nicole Polizzi, can handle.
