The confirmed roster of talent that is set for the Parade include: Lauren Alaina, Jimmie Allen and Noah Cyrus, Ally Brooke, Sofia Carson, CNCO, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, Karol G, Tori Kelly, Patti LaBelle, Ella Mai, Miss America 2020 Camille Schrier, the cast and Muppets of Sesame Street, Leslie Odom Jr. Keke Palmer, Dolly Parton, Pentatonix, Bebe Rexha, Jordin Sparks, Sebastian Yatra and Brett Young.
Last but not least, Santa Claus will be the main headliner for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and according to the New York Times "is in good health despite the fact the coronavirus has even made it to the Arctic".
