Taylor Swift spent Thanksgiving Day with her extended family, playing with toy drones. (Turn down the volume.) Yet she didn’t get the entire holiday off! During Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade broadcast, Swift stayed inside a studio to perform 1989 smash hit “Shake It Off.” (Only CBS showed this live rendition, while NBC featured the Great American Marching Band’s spirited cover instead.)

Being pop music’s BFF and all, Swift appeared happy to be there. When the “Blank Space” star wasn’t acting as Diana Ross to her troupe of backup singer-dancers — how fitting, given recent events — she eyed one of her saxophonists and spanked the ass of another, right when she was getting down to that sick beat. Watch Swift perform “Shake It Off” for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade up top (turn the volume back up), then see her holiday snapshots below.
