Lady Gaga Gets First Thanksgiving Holiday Special

11/04/2021 10:16 AM ET

Lady Gaga Thanksgiving - Singer Lady Gaga is about to treat her Little Monsters with her first Thanksgiving Holiday TV special. This one is going to be a good one.

She will perform eight songs in front of a small audience of close friends and family. Beside the hits, the singer 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.” 

The mother monster will premiere the aptly titled “A Very Gaga Thanksgiving” on ABC. The 90-minute special was conceived and directed by the singer and promises to offer a glimpse into her private life.

Katie Couric will sit down with the singer at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Manhattan, her alma mater, for a revealing one-on-one conversation about her life and inspirations behind her hits. Gaga also got into the holiday spirit by recruiting chef Art Smith to help her prepare a Thanksgiving dinner of deep-fried turkey … and waffles.

“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.”

In her songwriting and performances, she takes influence from glam rock artists such as David Bowie and Queen, as well as dance-pop artists like Michael Jackson and Madonna. She is among the best-selling music artists worldwide and the best-selling digital artists in the United States. She has won many awards, including Grammy Awards and MTV awards, among others, as well as two consecutive appearances on Billboard magazine’s Artists of the Year, regular placements on lists composed by Forbes, and an appearance on the Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.

“A Very Gaga Thanksgiving” airs Nov. 24 at 9:30 p.m.
