Beyoncé & Taylor Swift Square Off Again On Thanksgiving
Beyoncé isn’t the only female singer rocking a blockbuster Thanksgiving television special.
Taylor Swift has announced her own primetime musical show, Taylor Swift: Speak Now, also set to air Nov. 25 on NBC.
While Beyoncé’s I Am.. World Tour set, airing on ABC, takes her around the world to perform songs ranging from her time as lead singer of Destiny’s Child to her own solo megastardom, Taylor Swift’s hour-long special finds the country singer performing songs from her third album, Speak Now, in various locations.
The two specials aren’t in direct competition, though. Beyoncé’s, which features appearances by Jay-Z and Kanye West (who first infamously crashed Swift’s 2009 ‘Best Female Video’ VMA win to declare Bey’s “Single Ladies” vid deserving), airs at 9:30 p.m. EST. Swift’s runs from 8-9 p.m. EST.
Luckily, the only interruptions either starlet has to worry about is the traditional airing of Turkey Day football games. —John Kennedy
