It is official: Lady Gaga is teaming up with the Muppets. Kermit The Frog told the Los Angeles Times that Lady Gaga & the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular is official. The episode will air on November 28th on ABC and will include Gaga doing a duet with Kermit, while various Muppets will accompany Gaga on "Applause."
Kermit said, "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." He then referred to a coat designed by Jean Charles de Castelbajac that the singer wore in 2009 which was made up of a host of Kermit puppets: "We won't even mind if she mistakes some of the Muppets for pieces of her wardrobe - again."
Gaga added, "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!"
