Goodbye 2018, hello 2019! Check out how these stars kicked off the new year.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner

Kendall and Kylie partied with some of Hollywood’s biggest names all the way into the New Year – including Chris Brown, LeBron James, Niall Horan, Idris Elba and Kate Beckinsale – at a party that Drake was hosting.

Just last month, Kendall and Kylie’s brother-in-law Kanye West reignited their famous beef with Drake, but it looks like the Kendall and Kylie isn’t letting that affect them.

The sisters were reportedly spotted at Drake’s private star-studded New Year’s Eve bash at Delilah in West Hollywood.  ET reports that Kendall was photographed with rumored boyfriend Ben Simmons outside the venue, and Kylie and her beau Travis Scott were spotted at celeb hotspot Craigs before heading to the party.

They didn’t stay long though. “Ben and Kendall arrived around 11:30 p.m. and stayed for about two hours,” an eyewitness told E!. “Kylie also arrived a little before midnight but only stayed for about 30 minutes. Both sisters were inside the party at midnight.”

And at midnight, guests were showered with gift boxes – containing bottles of the Drake’s new champagne, Mod Sélection Champagne.

Demi Lovato

Demi headed to the mountains over the holiday – and toasted the new year with some Martinelli’s sparkling apple cider.

She shared a snap of the bottle on Instagram Stories with the hashtag “#Sobriety.”

She wasn’t alone either. The 26-year-old pop star was photographed out and about in Aspen, Colorado with rumored boyfriend Henry Levy.

It’s been five months since Demi was rushed to the hospital following her drug overdose. And the “Sober” singer expressed how thankful she is for her second chance and wrote a note of gratitude on Instagram stories.

“So grateful for the lessons I’ve learned this year. I will never take another day in life for granted, even the bad ones. Thankful for my fans, friends, family and everyone who supported me through this year. God bless.”

Taylor Swift

Tay celebrated New Year’s Eve with some of her closest friends – IN COSTUME.

The 29-year-old songstress, who’s known for her epic 4th of July parties, just threw a costume party for the books to usher in the New Year. The star-studded bash was attended by Blake Lively, her hubby Ryan Reynolds, Gigi Hadid, Iris Apatow, childhood pal Abigail Anderson, and more.

The “Look What You Made Me Do” singer invited her pals to come as their childhood heroes, and dress up they did. Tay channeled her inner mermaid and went as The Little Mermaid’s Ariel; Gigi totally rocked as Mary Poppins; Blake was adorable as Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz – complete with basket and Toto; among other spot-on costumes.

She shared a group photo of them in costume, together with some highlights from the party, on Instagram. She also listed their characters in the caption. “Mary Poppins, Audrey, Ariel, Ms. Frizzle, Cinderella, Gwen, Mr. Toad, Avril, Nancy Drew, Posh Spice, Rizzo, Frida Kahlo, Steve Irwin, Dorothy.. This new year we decided to dress up as our childhood heroes. Sending you all love and hope going into 2019 💗
