Default Cruise Ship Hosting Macy's July 4th Fireworks - Guess the Mystery Musical Performer!

A cruise ship, the brand-new Norwegian Epic, will serve as the host venue for the 34th annual Macy's 4th of July Fireworks.

During the event to commemorate the 234th birthday of the United States of America, the 153,000-ton, 4,200 passenger ship will also be the setting for a one-hour live national broadcast on NBC. Every year the broadcast features a musical performer; last year it was Rob Thomas and Jewel, and in previous years, big-name acts like Mariah Carey have performed.

We'd like to know: Who would you like to see perform on Epic during the 4th of July broadcast?

Vote in our poll -- and tell us why by posting below!

Lol. I'd love to see Aerosmith on a cruiseship. Seems Steven Tyler just got out of rehab, so ya never know.

Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson?

for real- I am more of a country person but I think the best is a singer/group who will really put on a great show and entertain across all ages

My personal choice would be Green Day, but I think Taylor Swift has a much broader appeal.
