Here’s What Happened When Pop Star Charlie Puth Rocked the Plaza

By A.J. Katz 

Pop star Charlie Puth rocked the Plaza this morning as part of Today show’s annual summer concert series, presented by Citi.

TVNewser was in attendance.


Puth, 26, was joined by the Today show team of Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, Craig Melvin and Carson Daly at various times throughout his performance, which lasted roughly a half hour.

In between songs like, Attention, How Long, and The Way I Am, Puth admitted to the Today co-hosts live and on camera that he was running on very little sleep, “but I’m still here!” In a fun moment, live and on-air,  just as Roker was about to throw to the local stations, Puth shouted out his signature catch phrase: “And now here’s what’s happening in your neck of the woods…” Puth is apparently a fan of NBC’s morning show.

Upcoming Citi Concert Series on Today performers include Julia Michaels (July 27), Keith Urban (August 2), Jason Mraz (August 10) and Cole Swindell (August 17).

This is the Today show’s 23rd annual summer concert series. The program’s annual series began on Rockefeller Plaza back in 1995.
