History with the Macy's Parade
CNCO made their Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade debut in the reimagined 2020 Parade. The band appeared and performed on Nickelodeon's Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles float, alongside the heros in a half-shell, Mikey, Leo, Donny and Raph. The band performed a rendition of their song, "Tan Enamorados," which was written by singer/songwriter Ricardo Montaner.
The group's Thanksgiving performance was pre-recorded on Tuesday, November 24th, 2020, as COVID-19 restrictions caused the Parade to be broken up and filmed over the course of three days.
