Though CBS’s Thanksgiving Day Parade coverage is secondary to NBC’s, CBS is giving Swiftionados a reason to tune in on Thanksgiving morning. CBS announced that The Thanksgiving Day Parade on CBS will feature performances from Miss “Welcome to New York” herself.

The special, which broadcasts “portions of the 88th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade,” is hosted by Kevin Frazier of Entertainment Tonight and Thea Andrews of The Insider, and runs live 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET. CBS also boasts performances from the casts of Matilda and Pippin.

The official Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade lineup announced by Macy’s and NBC includes Idina Menzel, KISS, Meghan Trainor, Nick Jonas, and Quvenzhané Wallis. NBC’s broadcast is also promising a preview of Peter Pan Live!, so pick wisely.
