Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular will not only feature great fireworks but a star-filled line up of performances that include performances by Selena Gomez and Pitbull.
Nick Cannon will serve as host to the Independence Day annual tradition that includes a performance by his wife Mariah Carey. Also on the performance roster is Cher, Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw.
Over 3 million spectators are expected to watch this year’s celebration with firework barges lined up from 24th Street to 50th Street in New York City’s harbor. The performances and fireworks will be televised tonight on NBC from 8-10 pm EST.
The show honoring the country’s 237th birthday will be capped off with a pyrotechnic display curated and scored by Usher. This is the first time Macy’s collaborates with an artist to conceptualize the fireworks and set it to music.
This is Macy’s 37th annual firework show and according to reports the largest in the nation. Over 40,000 fireworks will be lit tonight honoring America’s birthday.
