America’s Independence Day featured red hot performances at Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks concert, which aired on NBC. Our faves Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and more rocked out for a night of fun and celebration!

Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular concert is a staple of America’s Independence Day. This year, the concert featured all-star performances by music’s best including Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus,  Hunter Hayes, Lionel Richie, Miranda Lambert and more! With host Nick Cannon, you knew it was going to be one epic celebration!

Macy’s 4th Of July Concert: Ariana Grande, Hunter Hayes & More Perform

Ariana Grande, 21, continues to prove it’s her year! The “Problem” singer performed her hit song at Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular.

Ariana dazzled on stage for both her “Problem” and “The Way” performance. This girl is seriously a rock star.

Just last week, Ariana took over MTV for a one-time revival of Total Request Live titled Total Ariana Live.

Before the wonderful display of fireworks that stretched across the East River in New York City, Ariana brought down the house in one crazy good performance. 

Ariana pre-taped her performance for the big show and looked absolutely incredible. She remained festive in a patriotic midi-skirt and white crop top. We adored her ultra-cute outfit!

But Ariana wasn’t the only one who performed for the holiday special. Some of country’s best, an American music legend and more also hit the stage!

Miley Cyrus Performs Classic ‘Party In The USA’ From Spain

It’s not the 4th of July without “Party In The USA.” Even though Miley was in Barcelona, Spain for her Bangerz tour, that didn’t stop her from having one amazing performance. In a very patriotic leotard and white cowboy hat, Miley brought back her classic “Party In The USA” in Barcelona.

The performance was totally Miley with a dancing Statue of Liberty, Mt. Rushmore and Liberty Bell. Oh, Miley!

Miranda Lambert & More Perform For 4th Of July

Country queen Miranda Lambert, 30, also rocked the stage for Independence Day. The hotter than ever star performed “Platinum” in a show-stopping rendition of her hit song. The country group Zac Brown Band also hit the stage for “Let It Rain.”

In addition to Ariana and Miranda, Hunter Hayes, 22, Enrique Iglesias, 39, and Lionel Richie, 65, hit the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular stage. The country cutie jammed on his guitar from the Grand Ole Opry for great performance of “Wild Card.”

Enrique rocked out with a sexy rendition of “I’m A Freak.” It was a great jam with an upbeat tempo. What a cutie!

Lionel, who was recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BET Awards on June 29, gave another breathtaking rendition of “Dancing On The Ceiling” and “All Night Long.”

Cyrus performance was lame – she obviously can’t sing without the use of pitch-corrector, background vocals, and that weird robotic auto-tune voice maker which makes everyone from Madonna to Britney Spears sound like they’re singing in a can from atop the space station. I guess none of these new singers today can actually sing, ergo they rely on the schlock-and-awe to fool the audience into thinking it’s a great performance.

Miley Cyrus is a dirty used up pig skank with no talent. The stench from her pants chased Liam off. Forever.

say randy…. have you ever thought twice before commenting…. Miley Cyrus IS NOT a used up pig skank…. what you just wrote was insulting and plain out rude but most of all down right nasty and disrespectful… and by the way, Liam was cheating on Miley in the first place and how dare you say that the stench of her pants chased him away… did anyone tell you that you should always think twice before commenting on others…. i would be ABSOLUTELY 100% thrilled if Miley was my girlfriend and i would treat her with a lot of LOVE, SUPPORT, RESPECT, LOYALTY, and i would DEFEND her when people talked trash about her….

Awesome show!!! There was only one thing that ruined it for me – Miley Cyrus being included. Not that the performance wasn’t okay. Just can’t stand the skank. I really try to find the beauty in everyone but just can’t find it in this case. Maybe one day when you grows up & gets it all together; I will be able to find that beauty that has to be in there somewhere.
Miranda Lambert was AWESOME!!!! So much beauty inside and out shining through that I had never really seen in her before. What an awesome & amazing girl!!!
