Thanksgiving goes hand in hand with Macy’s annual parade. This year marks the 95th event, with a plethora of celebrity appearances and a lineup of star-studded performances.
On Twitter, K-Pop fans are disappointed that the music group BTS is not on the artist list. But, was BTS supposed to be in Macy’s Thanksgiving 2021 parade? We unpack everything we know.
Were BTS supposed to be in the Thanksgiving parade?
With all the talk from BTS on Twitter, fans wondered if the group was supposed to be part of Macy’s fashion show in 2021.
In short, it doesn’t look like there was ever a plan for BTS to perform at the event – but fans really, really wanted it.
One fan tweeted: “They should have had bts in the Thanksgiving parade wtf r they do rn.”
Another wrote: “My mom was like AND IF BTS ARE AT THANKSGIVING PARADE, give up you are a stan bc I wasn’t even thinking about that.”
Someone else took to Twitter: “What if BTS performed in the Thanksgiving parade.”
The boys went to the US recently, so the idea of ââa BTS performance wasn’t too far-fetched. Hoping they will make an appearance next year!
Has a K-Pop group ever participated in the parade?
In 2019, NCT 127 made history as the first K-Pop group to perform at Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.
The group drove through New York on a LEGO tank, performing fan-favorite âHighway to Heavenâ.
Likewise, girl group aespa is performing at Macy’s event this year, according to reports. Meaww reports that the aespa fashion show performance will be their very first live international performance. Exciting!
Who performs at the Macy’s event?
Besides the aespa, parade watchers can expect to see Carrie Underwood, Jon Batiste, Nelly, Andy Grammer and Foreigner.
Kelly Rowland, Jimmie Allen, Kristin Chenoweth and Rob Thomas will also join them.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
