Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson & More to Perform During “Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular” TV Special

NBC will celebrate Independence Day with a bang during its annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular as Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson and Ricky Martin take the stage to perform in New York City.

The West Point Band (76 musicians) and Glee Club (70 singers) will also perform a number of patriotic tunes before teaming with Kelly Clarkson for a rendition of Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America” to celebrate the song’s 100th anniversary.

The two-hour broadcast will also feature a pyrotechnic show, with more than 75,000 shells lighting up the NYC skyline over the East River.

Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila return for the second year as hosts of the broadcast, which begins at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
