The cranberry sauce won't be the only thing shaking this Thanksgiving. For the second straight year, ABC is airing a concert special by Beyoncé to funk up your Turkey Day.

I Am...World Tour documents an 11-month tour that saw Mrs. Jay-Z perform in 32 countries to over a million fans. "It's an honor to be able to come into people's homes on such a big holiday," says Beyoncé.

The opening moments of the show — with audience members across the globe crying and passing out — establish the scale of the extravaganza that follows. Over the years, Beyoncé has racked up a boatload of hits, and I Am... covers everything from her early smashes with Destiny's Child to her version of Etta James' "At Last," best known as the first dance at the Obama inauguration dinner.

Through rapid, cross-continental cuts, "Irreplaceable" becomes a global sing-along, and the staging of "Single Ladies" features hilarious clips of fans performing the video's signature dance steps. I Am... also includes rehearsal footage: "This isn't just a cut-down version of the concert film," says Beyoncé. "We wanted to make the special and the DVD two different experiences for the fans to enjoy."

I Am... World Tour airs Thursday at 9:30/8:30c on ABC
