Who’s Performing at the 2022 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and How You Can Watch

12 days ago American Songwriter

It’s hard to remember a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as star-studded as the one airing tomorrow, Thursday (November 24). But now that the event is back and perfected after 2020 and 2021, it makes sense big names would want to come out and show their tail feathers.

This year’s annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade—the 96th annual—kicks off on Thursday at 9 a.m. Eastern Time in New York City.

The show is available on NBC at 9 a.m. Eastern Time/Pacific Time. Or to see a live streaming broadcast, fans can watch the parade on the Peacock app from 9 a.m. to noon in all time zones.

Anchors from the Today show will host the event: Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, both of whom are returning from last year. Famed television personality Al Roker was set to be a part of the broadcast, but sadly he recently revealed he’s been hospitalized for blood clots. At this time, it’s unclear if he will be back in time for Thursday.

Performing this year are a slew of big names, from Mariah Carey to Dionne Warwick to Trombone Shorty. Check out the full list below:

Also set to make appearances at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade are late-night talk show host and noted musician (and Dolly Parton collaborator) Jimmy Fallon along with The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon house band, The Roots.

Broadway lovers will be able to see a performance from Lea Michele and the folks from Funny Girl. In addition, the casts of The Lion King, Some Like It Hot, and A Beautiful Noise will also perform numbers from their shows.

So, too, will the Radio City Rockets.

The Grand Finale

As American Songwriter reported earlier this week, Mariah Carey is set to conclude the festivities, singing her holiday classic, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” She will do so before the main event as Santa Claus and his sleigh land by Macy’s on 34th Street in the Big Apple.

“My childhood dream is coming to life!” the pop star wrote in a post on Instagram, which features a countdown to the Nov. 24 holiday celebration. “I’m going to be opening for the one and only, SANTA CLAUS, at this year’s @macys Thanksgiving day parade!”
