Carly Rae Jepsen and The Wanted are set to perform at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The international pop sensations have signed up to sing at the 86th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday November 22, and 'Call Me Maybe' singer Carly is thrilled to have been invited to take part in the popular event.

She told MTV News: "I've been watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade since I was a little girl, and never thought that I would be there on such a fun day, on a float with all those fantastic balloons and New Yorkers lining the street.

"I am so excited to perform and give my support for the great city as it recovers from Hurricane Sandy."

The British boy band and the Canadian starlet will be performing alongside Cody Simpson. Other acts rumoured to be taking to the stage include Flo Rida, country singer Colbie Caillat and chart-topping duo Karmin.

The parade is being hosted by 'Today' show anchors Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie and will air on Thanksgiving Day.

Stars including Olympic Gold Medallist Gabby Douglas and Jimmy Fallon will be joining the musical acts, travelling through the streets of New York on giant floats.
