2024 ROSE PARADE OPENING SPECTACULAR PRESENTED BY HONDA
Performers: David Archuleta, Rush Davis, Cassadee Pope, Michelle Williams
An innovative, vibrant twist for the Rose Parade, showcasing not just one or two, but three recording artists representing diverse backgrounds and musical genres. The first artist featured is David Archuleta who draws in the audience with his astounding vocal range performing inside a seemingly infinite tunnel of roses as the performance transfers over to Cassadee Pope, who is leading a rock and roll carpool karaoke moment inside a car full of dancers! The energy transfers over to the iconic Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child, who is performing in what looks like the center of a giant rose, with dancers surrounding her with large flower petal fans creating a Busby Berkeley homage while the DJ, Rush Davis, takes the performance into a full street party with acrobatic trickers exploding to life around him.

MID-PARADE PERFORMANCE PRESENTED BY VISIT LAUDERDALE
Performer: Alexander Star
The Visit Lauderdale performance explodes to life with a colorful tribute to the South Florida vacation destination. Up-and-coming artist and Ft. Lauderdale native Alexander Star headlines this performance with an original anthem, “Laudy Dayo,” celebrating all that is Ft. Lauderdale. Accompanied by dancers performing high energy choreography, Star’s exciting and contemporary celebration of everything South Florida is not to be missed.

MID-PARADE PERFORMANCE PRESENTED BY EXPLORE LOUISIANA
Performers: Sean Ardoin, James Burton, Amanda Shaw
Come on down to Louisiana! Exploding onto the street with this larger-than-life glimpse into the spectacle that is Mardi Gras, Explore Louisiana hosts one of the largest performances in the Parade. Featuring three local celebrity artists from around Louisiana—Amanda Shaw playing the fiddle, iconic Elvis-band member James Burton playing guitar and Zydeco legend Sean Ardoin singing and playing the accordion—this performance is supported by an impressive cast of colorful characters.

MID-PARADE PERFORMANCE PRESENTED BY ENJOY ILLINOIS
Performers: Straight No Chaser
In an homage to U.S. Route 66, connecting Chicago to Santa Monica, this performance highlights several connections the Midwest & West Coast states have with one another. In a unique musical approach, the world-renowned a cappella sensation Straight No Chaser headlines this performance with nothing but their voices, celebrating everything Blues Brothers, synonymous with Chicago!

ROSE PARADE GRAND FINALE PRESENTED BY MANSION ENTERTAINMENT GROUP
Performer: Jordin Sparks
The 2024 Grand Finale highlights the connection between the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl Game® with an all-in sports-themed performance that is an homage to the world of college football. Headlined by Jordin Sparks performing a three-song medley, this performance takes on a sonic journey—from “Stadiums,” a bass-thumping homage to stadium sports, to her celebratory duet, “Celebrate,” which is the perfect New Year’s Day anthem, and closing with “No Air” an iconic and hopeful ballad to carry us into 2024.

WHERE FLOWERS AND FOOTBALL MEET—ESPN
