Ariana Grande to perform at Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks


We hope Ariana Grande is still finding some time to get R&R somewhere in her hectic schedule, but as the performances and appearances pile up, it doesn’t look likely! The chart topper is currently on a whirlwind tour promoting her hit “Problem” with Iggy Azalea, and she just added a major gig to the list: NBC’s Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular!

The coveted Independence Day concert will be hosted by Nick Cannon on Friday, July 4 (duh) in NYC, and will feature performances from Ari, Nashville superstar Miranda Lambert, R&B legend Lionel Richie, and country cutie Hunter Hayes. Not a bad lineup, if you ask us!

This is the perfect get for Ariana, who is in the midst of polishing up her sophomore album for release a little later this year. Hey, we began the year with the 20-year-old on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, might as well celebrate our country’s birthday with her, as well!

Perhaps she will premiere her follow-up single there? C’mon girl, give us some new material for our BBQ playlists this summer! And for now, we will just keep watching that gorgeously-shot, mod-inspired video for “Problem.”

Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular airs on Friday, July 4 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
