Lady Gaga to premiere Thanksgiving special on ABC
Lady Gaga doesn’t look like the type to sit down over turkey and all the trimmings, but the singer couldn't resist treating her Little Monsters to her first holiday special.
Gaga will premiere the aptly titled “A Very Gaga Thanksgiving” on ABC. The 90-minute Thanksgiving day special was conceived and directed by the singer and promises to offer a glimpse into her private life.
She will perform eight songs in front of a small audience of close friends and family. Beside the hits, Gaga will perform “The Lady Is a Tramp” with Tony Bennett, “Marry the Night,” “You and I,” “The Edge of Glory” and the holiday classic “White Christmas.”
“We all know Lady Gaga is a phenomenon,” Couric said in a statement. “This is a chance to see more of who she is beneath the wild costumes and staged musical numbers .... Lady Gaga as a high school student still bruised by being excluded from the party, Lady Gaga as a devoted daughter and caring sister, Lady Gaga as a 25-year-old woman embracing fame and fortune that seemed to come overnight. She will impress you, delight you and surprise you.”
“A Very Gaga Thanksgiving” airs Nov. 24 at 9:30 p.m.
