The Wanted, Carly Rae Jepsen, Cody Simpson + More to Perform at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is an American tradition. And this year, a lot of the acts performing at the festivities are foreigners. Canuck Carly Rae Jepsen, Brits the Wanted and Aussie Cody Simpson will all hitch rides on floats in New York City to celebrate the Mayflower hitting land all those years ago.
“I’ve been watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade since I was a little girl, and never thought that I would be there on such a fun day, on a float with all those fantastic balloons and New Yorkers lining the street,” Caillat told MTV. “I am so excited to perform and give my support for the great city as it recovers from Hurricane Sandy.” Amen, sister!
In addition to pop stars and giant balloons, the parade will also feature Jimmy Fallon and the Roots, ‘Today’ hosts Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker, Olympians Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross and Jordyn Wieber and more. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will air at 9 AM ET on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, on NBC.
