Pretty much nothing went right here. First of all, NBC announcers Hoda Kotb and Al Roker seemed to have no idea who Jacquie and Will were, at first mistaking Will for "Voice" coach Adam Levine and then, to make matters worse, jokingly calling Will an "Adam wannabe." Ouch. Eventually, Hoda and Al were made aware that the other two people on the float were in fact "Voice" contestants, but they still failed to mention either singer by name, at first.
And then there was the technical glitch that forced Hoda and Al to babble for more than five interminable minutes while Tessanne, Jacquie, and the "Adam lookalike" awkwardly waved and waited. For a moment, it didn't look like Tessanne would perform at all ("She's not singing?" Al barked incredulously), before, around the 5:30 mark in the video above, she finally got to belt a mere 47 seconds of her single "Tumbling Down." Sad trombone.
It seems this particular float's roses had their share of thorns.
