After riding the Lego turkey-dragon at Thursday’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, NCT 127 made their debut appearance on NBC’s Today show Friday morning (Nov. 29).
During the broadcast, the boy band performed their recent English-language single “Highway to Heaven” as well as their song “Superhuman.” The group also performed the English versions of 2017’s “Cherry Bomb” and “Regular” for the audience of their fans, known collectively as NCTzen, cheering them on in the Rockefeller Center plaza.
NCT 127 are the final performers to be featured in this year’s Citi concert series on the NBC morning show.
During the interview segment of the broadcast, Johnny, who was born and raised in Chicago, talked about how the group was the first K-pop act to perform during the iconic Thanksgiving Day parade, saying that it was exciting to see their fans and meet celebrities they look up to, like Jimmy Fallon and The Black Eyed Peas.
“We had a great time,” he said.
After hearing that some fans slept outside overnight, NCT 127’s resident Canadian Mark, noted, “I just want to say a big thank you to everybody that came out today. Especially to all our NCTzens. It’s really, really cold but they showed up. Thank you so much, it really means a lot.”
