Lady Gaga will be spending Thanksgiving with Katie Couric.

People magazine reports the singer will sit down with Couric in a holiday special, A Very Gaga Thanksgiving, airing on ABC on Nov. 24. The 90-minute special will provide an inside look into the private life of the pop sensation.

Gaga will perform eight songs, including “Marry the Night,” “You and I,” “The Edge of Glory,” and a duet with Tony Bennett of “The Lady Is a Tramp.”

In addition to singing, Gaga will have a sit-down conversation with Couric at Gaga’s alma mater, Sacred Heart Catholic School in Manhattan. They will discuss her music career, relationships, and being in the spotlight.

“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.”

Gaga also gets into the holiday spirit by enlisting the help of chef Art Smith to make a Thanksgiving meal of deep-fried turkey and waffles.
