'American Ninja Warrior's' Akbar Gbajabiamila, Matt Iseman and Kristine Leahy to host
NBC's annual "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular" celebrates Independence Day in style with performances by Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, Hailee Steinfeld and additional acts to be announced. Akbar Gbajabiamila, Matt Iseman and Kristine Leahy from NBC's Emmy-nominated "American Ninja Warrior" join as hosts of the broadcast airing Tuesday, July 4 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT), with an hourlong encore presentation at 10 p.m.
The 41st annual Macy's 4th of July firework display over the East River will feature a massive pyrotechnic spectacle, igniting the skyline with more than 60,000 shells launched from five barges positioned in midtown Manhattan. It will be the country's largest firework display in over a decade and promises to be a must-see show from coast to coast. The awe-inspiring light show will be accompanied by the West Point Band and Glee Club and their musical tribute, "ANTHEM," featuring vocalists Heather Headley, Craig Campbell, Jamie Barton and the USO Troupe of Metropolitan New York.
"Our lineup of amazing musical acts and personalities will be the perfect lead-in to the incredible fireworks display the nation waits for all year," said Doug Vaughan, executive vice president, specials & late night programming, NBC Entertainment. "NBC is proud to partner with Macy's and these talented artists to create the ultimate destination to celebrate Independence Day."
