Kelly Clarkson, Flo Rida and Ed Sheeran Wow the Crowd at Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular
While the actual fireworks display took place at New York City's East River, the performances seemed to come from different parts of the country. For instance, Kelly performed her hits "Heartbeat Song," which you can watch above, and a powerful rendition of "Invincible" at a venue in Nashville while Flo Rida and his special guest Robin Thicke partied it up in Manhattan with their new collaboration, "I Don't Like It, I Love It," a song that really got the crowd dancing. Flo Rida also kept the party going with a performance of "Going Down for Real," which you can watch below.
After showing his British pride at Taylor Swift's July 4 bash, Ed made his way to the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular to perform "Thinking Out Loud." And even though it was well-received by the audience, some attendees wondered how he was chosen due to the fact that he was from England -- the country that the U.S. fought to be independent from and now celebrate this holiday.
"Who asked @edsheeran to perform @ #MacysFireworks? Do we really need to keeping rubbing it in Britain's face that we dumped them? #4thofJuly," one viewer tweeted.
However, this wasn't Ed's first time at the Macy's summer celebration. He joined Taylor onstage in 2013 to perform their duet, "Everything Has Changed." In any case, we're more than appreciative that Ed made it out to the festivities.
But that wasn't all. Country stars Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley as well as legendary singer-songwriter James Taylor also performed. The night ended with a extravagant fireworks display that was the perfect way to cap off America's birthday.
