Today is the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, and our Quebec Queen Céline Dion got to perform at it... or at least inside - near it.\nIt seems our sweet Céline is getting quite a bit of backlash for not having lip-synced on a float like other performers in the parade.\nRead many confused reactions by Americans on Twitter below!\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nIf you are American then you know that today marks the iconic Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you are Canadian... now you know. The parade is an annual tradition that dates back as far as 1924 and has been presented by the department store Macy's since the beginning.\nEvery year, New York City comes to a halt to host one of the oldest parades in the United States and one of the largest parades in the world.\nThe day is marked by three hours of impressive floats, massive balloons, and performances by some of the best entertainers out there.\nThis year, Macy's and NBC, who has been airing the televised version of the parade since 1952, invited our girl Celine Dion to do her thing as part of the parade.\nNormally, I would assume this is a fantastic choice, especially cause she's just released a hot new album. But, apparently, there are some people in the States that were left a little confused and even unimpressed by this Céline Dion performance.\nIt all started when she began to sing and it became clear she was... not at the parade.\nHere's a clip of the beginning of Céline's performance where you can see she is very clearly not at the parade, not on a float, not bundled up - nothing.\n[NEW VIDEO] @celinedion - Imperfections - Live Macy's Parade Thanksgiving NBC ➡️ pic.twitter.com/RY43OeWqz4— CelineDionFansFrance (@CDionFansFrance) November 28, 2019\nShe is clearly at a soundstage, somewhere else, performing to a separate audience than the people standing out on the street watching the actual parade go by.\nceline dion said ya like i'm gonna perform out in the cold on the streets like some "normal" person. y'all can film me from inside. and NBC said Yes Ma'am.— lauren (@heswiredin) November 28, 2019\nMiss Celine Dion said I will be INSIDE and SINGING LIVE at this parade 😂😂😂— Big Mac🧜🏻♀️ (@ShortAndSweetMJ) November 28, 2019\nThe tweets above make a point I'm tempted to believe. Céline is big on singing live, and she's sharing new songs right now, so she probably wanted to give a real show like she's used to.\nWhich means no floats and no lip-syncing.\nIn my opinion, this is hilariously Céline and that's why we love her. But some Americans were not so sold on the way of notre Reine.\nnorthing says american Thanksgiving like Quebecoise pop superstar Celine Dion at the Macy's parade pic.twitter.com/KINvUc4CjW— boz well (@boswellhutson) November 28, 2019\nYour Thanksgiving was last month @celinedion and you're not even on a float. Off my TV. #MacysParade— Kevins Head (@kevinshead) November 28, 2019\n@Macys @NBCNews Celine Dion? For Thanksgiving? You know she is Canadian, right? More about the show then the parade these days. #MacysThanksgivingDayParade #Thanksgiving— W Ream (@UAwoody) November 28, 2019\nSome even felt she shouldn't be performing because she's Canadian. To which I say, be careful what you wish for.\nIf you can't accept our Céline at Thanksgiving, we will withhold our Bublé at Christmas.\nThough I have to stay I understand that some viewers were jarred and confused by the sudden switch from the parade to the soundstage.\n#MacysThanksgivingDayParade obviously Celine Dion is too good to be lip singing out in the cold on a parade Float— Derek Brad (@DerekBrad) November 28, 2019\nGoing to echo @swaggajack and say, does Celine Dion performing inside really count as being a part of this parade? I won’t stand for half assed participation. You need to lip sync outside like EVERYONE ELSE Celine. #MacysDayParade— Chris (@HeatBuckets) November 28, 2019\nAnd, honestly, we can't know that this was Celine's decision and not a decision by Macy's or NBC to sell more tickets. So please, be gentle with her.\nREAD ALSO: Disney Is Filming A "Home Alone" Reboot In Montreal This Winter & Here's How To Get A Part\nEither way, I don't know why people can't just accept the Thanksgiving gifts given to them and appreciate the angelic voice of Celine Dion floating through the television airwaves, for goodness sakes.\nI just put on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade but I guess it's a Celine Dion concert now?— Robin Benway (@RobinBenway) November 28, 2019\nThe only arguments I will accept are that this performance was a little... outside the norm of the regular parade experience.\nWhy am I watching a prerecorded Celine Dion stage performance when I'm supposed to be watching a parade? She too good for a float?#MacysThanksgivingDayParade #Thanksgiving #MacysDayParade— Kyle Andrews (@StarletteNovel) November 28, 2019\nSo is the Macy’s parade now indoors in a studio? Turned on #NBC and see Celine Dion NOT outside, no balloons, what IS this? Did I sleep until Rocking New Year’s Eve?— Scott (@wehoscott) November 28, 2019\nAnd a lot of people really did seem to be most annoyed at this new approach Macy's and NBC were taking to the whole show, as opposed to just being directly pissed at Céline.\nIt seems that the frustration was coming mostly from this weird choice to pre-tape or shift to this indoor performance in the middle of the whole parade.\nDoes it technically count as a #MacysDayParade performance if #CelineDion wasn't actually in the parade, and it was a pre-taped performance in front of some other audience?#MacysParade #MacysThanksgivingDayParade— TurtleSoup16 (@TSoup16) November 28, 2019\nWhy didn't they just have her perform at the beginning or something, and then take the festivities outside?\nI also wondered if perhaps she wasn't able to sing outside in the cold because she was so recently ill, and is meant to continue with a world tour after today.\nAll-in-all it seemed that a lot of viewers were just disappointed to not be seeing the balloons and marching bands.\nI haven’t watched the Thanksgiving Day parade in a while but in the 30 min that I’ve been watching, I’ve seen Celine Dion sing and interviews with celebrities not actually at the parade. The only time I’ve seen actual parade footage it was right before a commercial break.— Rob W (@RJW2001) November 28, 2019\nEvery year dozens of marching bands participate in the parade and marching along with the Broadway performers, singers, special guests, balloon handlers, and floats.\nThese are the things that the parade has become known for worldwide, so it makes sense that a lot of families were confused when they sat down to share this tradition with the younger generation and were faced with...\nWell, Céline Dion.\nSo far on the Thanksgiving Day Parade they've had Celine Dion, Ciara, The Black Eyed Peas, and TLC. Coming up? Ashanti. Did I wake up in 2002???— Melanie 🏳️🌈 (@openingnupward) November 28, 2019\nHopefully, Macy's and NBC caught the drift of the audience this year and they smarten up and show more parade coverage next year.\nAnd maybe leave Céline here, with us - where she's properly appreciated.
