Our Favorite Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Performances of All Time


Its not really Thanksgiving unless you start the day by watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...and its not the Thanksgiving Day Parade without performances from our favorite musicians! Let's take a trip down memory lane and relive some of our favorite performances from years past.

ARIANA GRANDE

Before Ariana had her signature pony tail (which is gone now...RIP), she was one of Nickelodeon's biggest stars. Why they chose to have her perform on a float with a TERRIFYING Dora the Explorer, I'll never know, but she still sounded great!

SHAWN MENDES

Remember when Stitches was Shawn's biggest hit? Yeah, its hard to remember back that far, but Shawn performed his first big hit at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2013!

SABRINA CARPENTER

Before Sabrina was headlining our River on the Rooftop, she was starring as Maya Hart on Disney's Girl Meets World and basically being the cutest human on the planet. All the way back in 2014, Sabrina performed "Middle of Starting Over" at the parade!

PANIC! AT THE DISCO

In 2015, something truly magical happened - Panic! at the Disco performed Victorious alongside the freakin' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

MILEY CYRUS

Remember sweet, young Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana? Here she is performing alongside Bolt at the parade in 2009 and as Hannah Montana in 2006. Her first performance in the parade was actually on her 14th birthday!

JONAS BROTHERS

And last, but CERTAINLY not least - my favorite performance of all THE JONAS BROTHERS! My little teenage heart really couldn't handle this and I probably broke down in tears during their performance.
