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.
