Justin Bieber Cancels Thanksgiving Day Parade Performance

Beliebers will be crushed to learn that our favorite Canadian pop-star will not be performing at the Thanksgiving Day Parade as planned due to “personal reasons.”

In fact, the Purpose singer canceled both his appearance on the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and his performance in The Thanksgiving Day Parade on CBS.

Production sources tell ET that the 21-year-old pop star was scheduled to shoot his parade performance on Tuesday evening in New York City after appearing on the “Late Show,” but abruptly canceled both for undisclosed personal reasons.

He did make his apologies known to the Late Night Host on twitter:

And even a personal plea to @StephenAtHome

I guess with an album drop (Purpose) breaking a Billboard record previously held by Drake and The Beatles, and a world tour at the helm, sometimes you just need to slow down a sec. We forgive you Biebs, but the show must go on!

This year’s lineup includes stars such as Mariah Carey, Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson, Panic! At The Disco, Prince Royce, and more. Fans can also catch Miss America 2016 at the parade this year, as well as, Questlove with the cast and the Muppets of “Sesame Street.”

The Radio City Rockettes will kick off the event that will feature theatrical productions from “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Finding Neverland,” “The King & I,” “On Your Feet!” and “Something Rotten.” Fans can also catch a sneak peek performance of NBC’s “The Wiz Live!” which premieres on Dec. 3 at 8 p.m.

The parade will be broadcast 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET live on NBC.
