Kelly Clarkson Sang Live During the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

"TBDBITL" was chosen from more than 100 band applicants and will be one of 10 marching bands in the 92nd edition of the parade.

There's also a chance NY could see a record low temperature on Thanksgiving Day: Accuweather is predicting a morning low temperature of 21 degrees and an afternoon high of 27.

Some of the balloons were flying just a few feet above the people who were holding their tethers.

Bystanders refused to let cold temperatures put a damper on watching the parade, breaking out the blankets and sleeping bags.

Amid the big balloons and floats during Thursday's famous New York City parade, actresses Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla kissed on a live NBC broadcast during a performance of the new Broadway musical "The Prom".

Spectators lined up as many as 15 deep in some places past year, and four activists briefly disrupted things when they jumped over barriers and sat down in the street to protest changes in US immigration policy.

Forecasters say it could be the coldest day in the parade's history.

Before the parade stepped off at 9 a.m., there were concerns that blustery winds in NY would ground the iconic balloons in the float.

The Ohio State University Marching Band tweeted photos of them on their way to NYC, and then some of them taking in the sights. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever".

NEW YORK-Diana Ross might be singing "Stop!" CBS News reported that the Thanksgiving Day parade balloons were last grounded in 1971.

Officials will be monitoring wind to see if giant character balloons such as SpongeBob and Charlie Brown can fly safely.

Officials had been ready to order the 16 helium-filled balloons to a lower altitude or removed entirely if sustained winds exceed 23 miles per hour (37 kph) and gusts exceed 34 miles per hour (54.7 kph).

Even with all the handlers, Goku briefly met his match when a strong gust of wind almost blew the giant balloon away early this morning.

Others in the lineup included Bad Bunny, Kane Brown and Ella Mai, Pentatonix, Rita Ora, Sugarland, Anika Noni Rose, Barenaked Ladies, Leona Lewis, Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke, Bazzi, Ashley Tisdale and Carly Pearce.
