TODAY fans were left cringing as Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and their co-hosts broke down in an awkward dance on Wednesday.
The show was overtaken by a marching band as viewers were given a preview of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

The band then marched through the control room and surrounded the boogieing co-hosts in the studio.
Hoda slapped the table in time and shook her fist in the air.
However, some viewers were not impressed to see their favorite co-hosts getting so into it.

“I just want to watch the parade going down the street and the big balloons,” complained one.
“I have to watch on another network, so we don’t have to watch all the bad lip syncing performances.”
Another simply described the dancing as “awkward”.
THANKS HE’S GONNA BE OK
Many Today fans are disappointed that the much-loved weathercaster Al Roker is unlikely to make an appearance on Thanksgiving.
The 68-year-old is battling blood clots in his legs and lungs and has been absent for two weeks.
However, he told his followers on Instagram last week that he is getting better.
“After some medical whack-a-mole, I am so fortunate to be getting terrific medical care and on the way to recovery,” wrote the meteorologist.
