Yes, Singers Lip Sync on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
If you are watching the 2016 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, something that you might be wondering is why it appears the singers are lip syncing. Well, that’s because they are!
Nearly all performers in the parade have been lip syncing instead of singing live for years for multiple reasons, the biggest one being that floats are moving throughout the parade and having singers perform live would be a logistical nightmare.
Another reason is the cold weather that performers frequently have to face during the parade. It currently is a cool 45 degrees in New York City, while some years the weather is much colder than that.
