Tonight is the annual celebration, the 2017 Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular, which takes place in New York. The show airs at 8 p.m. ET on NBC and features several A-list performers. This means that America’s Got Talent fans will have to wait another week to watch a new episode, since the fireworks show is taking over its usual time slot. Matt Iseman, Kristine Leahy and Akbar Gbajabiamila are hosting and the West Point Band, along with the West Point Glee Club are on board for the event as well.
Check out the celebrities who are appearing as performers during tonight’s show.
Currently, Jennifer Lopez is juggling motherhood, her residency in Las Vegas, filming for her television show Shades of Blue, and her relationship with boyfriend A-Rod. And Billboard reports that Lopez is set to debut a new single at the Spectacular tonight. It is a new Spanish-language single, titled “Ni tu ni yo,” alongside Cuban duo Gente de Zona. And, the album that this song comes off of is actually produced by Lopez’s ex-husband and baby daddy Marc Anthony.
Country band Lady Antebellum is on board to perform and the trio recently returned to the spotlight after a little hiatus. Recently, band member Charles Kelley told Indy Star that: We’re a country band, but let’s be honest. We’ve always known we were a contemporary pop-country band. That’s what we love. We love R&B, we love funk, we love rock ’n’ roll, we love country. That’s our generation of listeners, too. They’re a mixtape generation.
Country star Brad Paisley is one of tonight’s performers and recently it was announced that the singer has a Netflix comedy special, titled “Comedy Rodeo” coming out. And, it looks like David Hasselhoff will be making an appearance in it.
Hailee Steinfeld is a greatly successful actress as well as a music artist and she is performing tonight. She first became known for her leading role in the movie True Grit, alongside big names from Matt David to Jeff Bridges, to Josh Brolin. Most recently, Steinfeld received a Golden Globe Award nomination for her part in the movie The Edge of Seventeen. Just a couple months ago, she released a new single called “Most Girls”, so she will most likely be performing that song.
Sheryl Crow is a music icon and currently, she is touring as a member of Willie Nelson’s Outlaw Music Festival, with artists including Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Sturgill Simpson, the Avett Brothers. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Crow said she has big plans for her upcoming album, which is set to be released in 2018. She explained: I called Keith Richards and I called Willie. I called Stevie Nicks. I called Neil Young. I called Don Henley. Joe Walsh. All these people I’ve loved so much … and I said, ‘Will you come record with me? I really just want to have a musical experience that sums it up for me.’ And so I have this record in the can, that I think will come next year, of just collaborations.
Puth recently revealed that he has a new album due out this fall and it’s titled “Voice Notes”. He told TODAY that the reason for the title was: I’m really bad at writing music notes down. When I have an idea, I just record it on my phone and then I go to the studio and break it down.
