NEW YORK (AP) — Carrie Underwood and the cast of “The Sound of Music” will give a sneak peek of what they’ve been rehearsing during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

They will appear in the first hour of the parade.

The Roots will appear with the cast of “Sesame Street.”

The Goo Goo Dolls, Fall Out Boy, Mannheim Steamroller, Gavin DeGraw, Kellie Pickler, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Ariana Grande, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts will also be in the parade.

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings will perform for the first time since Jones was diagnosed with cancer in the spring.

The parade will be shown Thanksgiving Day on NBC.
