Music performed: “Lost in the World”
With five acclaimed albums under his belt by November 2010, it was only a matter of time before Kanye West got to perform on his very own float. For the 84th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Kanye cruised through the streets of Manhattan on New York Daily News' Big Apple float. The float, which has been a part of Macy's holiday procession for over 25 years, is composed of a 30-foot big apple, miniature versions of the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Macy's, and the signature yellow taxi cabs. A perfect depiction of New York City's energy, the float served as an ideal platform for Kanye's lively performance of "Lost in the World."
