Rosie O’Donnell‘s upcoming variety special will feature musical guests Ne-Yo and Alanis Morissette, PEOPLE has learned.

The one-hour NBC special, Rosie Live, aims to bring back the variety program format reminiscent of The Carol Burnett Show with comedy sketches and musical numbers.

Ne-Yo and Morissette will perform live from New York’s Little Shubert Theatre. The program will air the night before Thanksgiving, Nov. 26.
