Of the more than 1,400 love stories submitted, Seth and Allie's stood out because of their true sacrifice. Due to military obligations, the couple has been forced to spend the majority of their first three years of marriage separated. Now, with Allie currently working towards a Pharmacy degree, and Seth away, training for a new assignment, the two of them will only have a brief moment to be together this holiday season. By the time Allie completes her academic program and is able to rejoin her husband, their "live-in" time as a married couple will total around five months over a span of six years of marriage.
"Our love for one another has helped us withstand the physical distance between us and will help us cope with the separation once again," said Allie. "Words cannot describe how thankful and appreciative WE are that we've been given this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have our New Year's Eve kiss together, in front of millions of people," shared Seth.
In addition to the NIVEA "Kiss of the Year" couple taking the stage tonight, one lucky musician will be getting, what could possibly be, the biggest break of her career. Tiffany Alvord , a twenty-year old singer-songwriter, was named the winning artist in NIVEA's first-ever contest to support aspiring musical talent. After receiving the largest number of fan "views" of her cover video of the song, "This Kiss," Tiffany was selected as the winner among nine other aspiring artists. Tonight she will have the opportunity to sing her heart out to her largest audience yet, of close to two million people.
