One just wasn’t enough for Beyoncé. After millions of fans licked their Thanksgiving plates clean while watching her dance her tail off on her intimate Las Vegas I Am…Yours turkey day special last year, Queen B is coming back for seconds. Documenting the international leg of her 2009 concerts, ABC will premiere the broadcast version of Beyoncé’s I AM…WORLD TOUR in another primetime special at 9:30pm EST/PST this Thanksgiving.
I got to check out a screening of the concert movie a few weeks ago. Look out for plenty of behind the scenes footage–some even shot by Beyoncé on her laptop. As someone who’s known to be one of the strongest women in a business, it’s interesting to see what she’s like when the curtain is pulled back. You’ll see Beyoncé distraught–even in tears at times–when talking about how much she misses home and specifically her husband, Jay-Z. So much so that she starts a “Day-Z” countdown, marking the days left before she can fly back across the Atlantic to briefly see him.
Still, the shows go on in their high-heeled, wonderfully choreographed glory. Kanye West and Jay even pop up on stage for a bit. Produced and directed by Beyoncé for her Parkwood Pictures, Beyoncé’s I AM…WORLD TOUR will be exclusively sold through Walmart starting Nov. 26.
Check out a preview of the special after the jump.
