Macy’s has issued an official statement regarding what they call “technical difficulties” during some of the performances by music artists during the NBC telecast. Most notably Rita Ora.
During today’s NBC broadcast of the #MacysParade several recording artists experienced technical difficulties that negatively impacted their performance. We apologize and want fans to know these issues were out of the artist’s control.
