Watch: Ciara, Ashanti, TLC, Kelly Rowland, & More Perform at 2019 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

Published: Thursday 28th Nov 2019 by Rashad

In addition to courting some of Hollywood’s brightest music, movie, and sports stars, Macy’s annual Thanksgiving parade has become the holiday’s biggest event thanks to its inclusion of some of the nation’s most impressive high school bands and, of course, the larger than life floats.

This year being no different, Black Eyed Peas, Natasha Bedingfield, Debbie Gibson, the band Chicago, Idina Menzel, NCT 127, Ozuna, and Lea Michele were among the chart-topping artists on hand to provide entertainment at Thursday’s showing (November 28).  And, while they waved the flag high for their respective genres, R&B was in full effect as well with Kelly Rowland, TLC, Ciara, and Ashanti on hand to represent. While Rowland and Ashanti opted to turn render live rendition of holiday tunes, TLC and Cici broke out numbers from their respective discographies.

    So TLC does what they normally do: Lipsync. Ciara…pathetic. Dancer? I don’t see it. Just a bunch of flailing of her arms but she can dance right? No.

      You are correct. A bunch of has-beens. They should have booked Camila.

      ummm every single artist who sang (and rapped) at the Macys parade today lipped

      • Clarks00on November 28, 2019

        Every year all the artists have to lio sinc for this. I think artists are forced to lip synch for this gig

        @Aaron – Exactly my point idiot. It’s just another performance for them.

    I know Kelly said top of next year for the album… I wish she would put her name back out there at least featured on someone else’s track for now, released as a single. If it becomes successful it will be a good kick off for her own record.

    I’d love to hear her on a funky song with Bruno Mars for example.

    The Christmas thing is cute but after all these years… I want more !

      Good idea but she won’t do that because she’s independent and has no damn idea what she’s doing, nor does her husband who she hired without any management experience or her team.

      Nobody cares about that darkie Kelly Rowand. They only care about lightskin Beyonce. Kelly should beg Beyonce to be her background singer next album and next tour. Same goes for Normani. Normani should beg Camila to work as her background singer. When u are a dark female u really are not going to make it big in music. The 90s are long gone so now it is all about aesthetics and if you do not have he right look and complexion you will just end up a flop like Normani and whatever singles Kelly released this year.

    • YAS BIH November 28, 2019

      Exactly ?????? It’s nothing but Weird, Miserable, Broke, and Unloved trolls who Basically live on this site trolling black successful women who they could never be on the same level as. They are just bored and lonely seeking attention by any means reason why they are here spreading negativity instead of celebrating the holiday with their family.

      • FAF November 28, 2019

        They mad Bc Rihana was home stuffing her face

      • YAS BIH November 29, 2019

        ? You might be right I can’t think of a legit reason why they stay so mad.

    *rolls over after eating delicious African American soul food*

    TLC’s music is so classic. Ciara should really open her ears and hear the decline in her catalogue. She’s come too far for this. No more childish songs sis.

    • FAF November 28, 2019

      All her work is selling thank u & plz come again

      @Jai – “Ciara should really open her ears and hear the decline in her catalogue.” – LMFAO!
