What's the perfect complement to a plate of turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce? A festive side of Carly Rae Jepsen, of course.

The "Call Me Maybe" singer is just one of the pop stars set to appear during the 86th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. As millions tune across America, the Today show's Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie will host the world-famous spectacle's festivities, which will include boyband The Wanted, rapper Flo Rida, pop-rockers Neon Trees, singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat, pop duo Karmin and many more in its star-studded lineup.

"Since the first broadcast in 1948, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has become a tradition for families across America," said Doug Vaughan, Senior Vice President of NBC's Special Programs and Late Night, in a press release. "This year we are thrilled to once again celebrate with some of the nation's best performers."

Marching down Broadway in Manhattan on Nov. 22, the parade will kick of the holiday season with plenty of giant bouncing balloons, built-up floats, marching bands, cheerleaders and the one-and-only Santa Claus.

In addition to the pop artists, the revelry will also feature on-the-street performances from some of Broadway's top musicals, such as Annie, Bring It On, Cinderella, and Elf. Additional big names slated to appear include Jimmy Fallon & The Roots, Whoopi Goldberg, Sandra Lee, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and classic acts like the Big Apple Circus and the Radio City Rockettes.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will air Thursday, Nov. 22, on NBC from 9AM - 12 PM, all time zones.
