Lady Gaga joining The Muppets for Holiday Special

Kermit the Frog and Lady Gaga

Kermit and co. have made a new best friend. Lady Gaga is to join The Muppets in ABC’s 90-minute special Lady Gaga & the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular.

When asked about the exciting opportunity to sing alongside Pepe the King Prawn, Gaga said “I was so excited when ABC called me about doing a holiday special this year, I knew it just wouldn’t be a complete night of laughter and memories without The Muppets! Can’t wait to see the gang again and I hope Miss Piggy’s still not mad about Kermit. We’re just friends!”

Following the controversy of Gaga’s Kermit outfit three years ago, Kermit commented that, “We won’t even mid if she mistakes some of The Muppets for pieces of her wardrobe again.” He’s a very forgiving man/frog.

The special will feature songs from Lady Gaga’s new album but more importantly, there will be special duets and sketches with The Muppets and appearances by Kristen Bell, Sir Elton John and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Meanwhile, The Muppets will return to the big screen in Muppets Most Wanted which opens in March 2014.
