Plot Synopsis

Each year since 1967, New York City has celebrated Independence Day with fireworks and music.
On Thursday, July 4, 2019 from 8-10pm ET (live)/PT (tape), NBC broadcast all-star musical performances and the nation's largest patriotic pyrotechnic display. Co-hosted by WORLD OF DANCE judge Derek Hough and Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Ciara, the 2019 MACY'S 4TH OF JULY FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR featured musical performances by Luke Bryan, Khalid, Maren Morris and Brad Paisley, and more. Plus, the event features a dance performance by Hough and Ciara performing a musical medley. The 43rd annual event illuminated the sky over New York City with a barrage of color, light and sound from the Brooklyn Bridge, featuring more than 70,000 shells and effects from the bridge and from four barges positioned along the shores of Pier 17 at the Seaport District. The 25-minute display honors Independence Day and classic American Cinema and is highlighted by a host of new shells and effects in 28 colors including crackling rain shells, patriotic chasing crossettes, howling wolves, screaming dragons, silver twisters, diamond screamers and a dramatic 1,600-foot waterfall. The musical score is the basis for the fireworks choreography and this year it features patriotic classics such as "America the Beautiful" and "Stars & Stripes Forever," along with world-famous instrumentals from classic American films. From John Williams' famed title compositions for STAR WARS, SUPERMAN, and ET to Max Steiner's "Casablanca Suite" and Alfred Newman's "20th Century Fox Fanfare." With MGM's THE WIZARD OF OZ turning 80 this year, Macy's Fireworks pre-recorded score also features Jennifer Hudson performing its most beloved song "Over the Rainbow." The tribute marks the show's visual and emotional centerpiece. An hourlong encore presentation begins at 10pm.
