Lady Gaga is as likely to wear a turkey on her head as she is to eat one at Thanksgiving dinner. But the singer may surprise fans in a whole new way on Thanksgiving night, when she sits down with ABC’s Katie Couric for a holiday special, A Very Gaga Thanksgiving.

The special promises an intimate look inside the private life of the pop sensation, who will perform eight songs – including “Marry the Night,” “Yoü and I,” “The Edge of Glory,” “White Christmas” and “Lady and the Tramp” with Tony Bennett – in front of her own friends and family.

“We all know Lady Gaga is a phenomenon. This is a chance to see more of who she is beneath the wild costumes and staged musical numbers,” says Couric, who promises, “She will impress you, delight you and surprise you.”
