'Lady Gaga and The Muppets' Holiday Spectacular', which will air on Thanksgiving night, features GaGa's duets with Elton John and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and an appearance from Kristen Bell.
ABC has announced a holiday special featuring Lady GaGa and The Muppets. Mother Monster and the cute puppets will team up in the 90-minute special, "Lady Gaga & The Muppets' Holiday Spectacular", slated to air Thanksgiving night, November 28 at 9:30-11:00 P.M. ET on the network.
"I was so excited when ABC called me about doing a holiday special this year," GaGa says in a statement. "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!"
Kermit the Frog adds, "What an incredible opportunity! We have a long history with Ms. GaGa, so we jumped at the chance to do a holiday special with her. We won't even mind if she mistakes some of the Muppets for pieces of her wardrobe - again."
The holiday special will include a duet between GaGa and Kermit the Frog, a performance of GaGa's hit "Applause" with special Muppet guests, and duets with Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and RuPaul. Kristen Bell is tapped to appear in a special sketch as well.
The said Thanksgiving special will additionally feature a new sneak peek to upcoming Disney movie, "Muppets Most Wanted", in which the "Born This Way" songstress makes a cameo appearance. The family-comedy movie will hit theaters across the nation on March 21, 2014.
