While all eyes were on the parade, viewers may have noticed the absence of The Today Show’s Al Roker who missed the event for the first time in 27 years after being hospitalized for a blood clot.
Among those wishing the rocker a speedy recovery were President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, who called into the show as they also thanked first responders and troops.
Tweeting Thursday morning, Roker shared a photo of himself watching the parade from the hospital, enjoying the event on TV like more than 20 million viewers as he noted that he would be released in time to have dinner with his family.
‘So much to be #thankful for on #thanksgivingday. Leaving the hospital and home for #ThanksgivingDinner,’ Roker wrote.
Despite Roker’s absence, the event went on without the popular emcee as Broadway singer Lea Michele opened the festivities with a performance of ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade’ from her Broadway show ‘Funny Girl’.
After other Broadway performances, the audience settled on Abdul’s energetic performance of his hit ‘Straight Up’, as the 60-year-old proved that he can still wow audiences.
Along with the iconic balloons, the parade also featured 28 floats, 12 marching bands, 700 clowns and several music stars who made their way on Thanksgiving Day.
The parade will begin on the city’s Upper West Side and end at the iconic Macy’s store in Herald Square, organizers said.
Attendance was predicted to include 500,000 more people than last year. The 2020 parade was a TV-only festival due to the pandemic.
