The Fourth of July is just around the corner, which means it’s time for fireworks, barbecues, beer and a whole lot of red, white and blue over the upcoming long weekend.
If you’ve got no plans, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun. Macy’s annual fireworks show is heading back to New York City’s East River, and as usual, the event will be broadcast on TV, featuring performances from 5 Seconds of Summer, Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce, Pitbull and more.
Additionally Mickey Guyton will be hosting A Capitol Fourth, which will feature performances by Cynthia Erivo, Jake Owen, Darren Criss, Yolanda Adams, Andy Grammer, Gloria Gaynor, Rachel Platten and more.
Meanwhile, CNN’s The Fourth in America special will include star-studded performances from AJR, Ava Max, Alessia Cara, Avril Lavigne, the B-52’s, Def Leppard, the Doobie Brothers, Gloria Estefan, Jason Derulo, Jimmie Allen, Journey, The Lumineers, Machine Gun Kelly, Maren Morris, Old Dominion, Pitbull, Santana, Third Eye Blind, T-Pain, Willie Nelson and more.
