From sexual badboy R. Kelly to cuddly amphibian Kermit the Frog, it seems Lady Gaga’s rolodex of collaborators knows no bounds. Today, ABC announced that Mother Monster and the Muppets will be teaming up for a 90-minute TV special dubbed “Lady Gaga & the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular”.
Along with holiday favorites and a duet with Kermit, Gaga will reportedly perform new songs from her album, ARTPOP. But she won’t be the only human being on the program — she’ll be joined by Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kristen Bell, and RuPaul.
This is not the first time the “Applause” pop star and the Muppets have appeared together. Kermit served as Gaga’s date to the MTV VMAs back in 2009, and of course, there was that time she wore the Frog as a dress on German TV. This also marks her second ABC holiday special, following 2011’s “A Very Gaga Thanksgiving”.
“Lady Gaga & the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular” airs on Thanksgiving Day (November 28th) from 9:30pm to 11pm ET.
