This one is called "I Am...World Tour," and features her storming stages around the world, performing all her biggest hits.  But it also features a rare behind-the-scenes look at the singer's life, through the use of footage that she captured herself on her computer video camera.

Beyonce says she wanted her fans to "get a better feeling" for the woman behind all the glitz and glamour, and to understand better what she calls "this battle between me onstage, which is Sasha Fierce, and who I really am."  Beyonce, who produced, edited and directed the special, says she's "honored" to be part of the nation's TV viewing on Thanksgiving night.

She says, "I know how many families get's such a beautiful holiday, so to think that my music can inspire and be the entertainment for Thanksgiving for ABC is incredible!"

"I Am...World Tour" airs at 9:30 p.m. ET on Thanksgiving.  Fans will be able to buy it on DVD Nov. 30.
