Fans of the Macy’s Parade are baffled by a random foreigner’s performance of ‘I Want to Know What Love Is.’

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade always has some interesting musical guests, but this year’s audience was perplexed by what appeared to be a random performance by the classic rock band Foreigner.

The band rode on a Macy’s float with a choir, robots, and dolls, performing their hit “I Want to Know What Love Is.”

It’s common for artists to perform their own songs during the parade instead of Christmas carols, but many viewers have taken to social media to express their surprise that Foreigner performed an old song from their catalog.

Director Eric Appel joked, “I’m not sure what was weirder, Foreigner’s performance or the Macy’s Parade NFT promo.”

Someone else joked, “It doesn’t feel like the holidays have begun until Foreigner appears in the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade… in a dollhouse.”

“Sincerely enjoy the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade’s time-honored tradition of lip-syncing performances.

Another sarcastically tweeted, “I ABSOLUTELY want to see Foreigner’sing’ a snippet of ‘I Wanna Know What Love Is’ at 10am.”

‘Don’t stop!’ says the narrator.

“Eh, who cares,” I thought as I watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Lip syncing is what they’re doing.

This is ridiculous: a foreigner.


While many viewers were surprised to see Foreigner at all, others noted that they were among the few celebrities they recognized.

“I turned on the Macy’s parade and have so far seen Foreigner and 3 Who The Hell Are These People?! I’m so old.”



Another Twitter user commented, “From what I saw of the Macy’s parade, I recognized Steve from Blue’s Clues, Foreigner, and Santa.”

“It’s possible that I’m out of touch with pop culture.”

For many fans, Foreigner’s performance, despite its perceived randomness, was the highlight of the parade, with the band belting out a classic during the big holiday event.

“By far the best part has been Foreigner on Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

“And it’s not even close,” one ecstatic observer tweeted.

“At the Macy’s Day Parade, Foreigner NAILED IT.

What a voice! He’s still got it! The audience erupted in laughter.

Another Foreigner fan yelled, “This is the America I love.”

“Either I’m getting old or this Macy’s parade is getting worse and worse with each passing year… but hey…

I was fantastic…
