According to the network, Lady Gaga will be performing a few songs off of her new ARTPOP album, including a duet with Kermit the Frog. “What an incredible opportunity!” said Kermit the Frog. “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’s set to include a “dazzling rendition” of “Applause” performed with special Muppet guests. Lady Gaga will also duet with the non-Muppet guest stars and Kristen Bell (soon to be seen in the big screen adaptation of Veronica Mars) will appear in a sketch with Lady Gaga and the Muppets.
“I was so excited when ABC called me about doing a holiday special this year,” said Lady Gaga. “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!”
Lady Gaga & The Muppets Holiday Spectacular will premiere on November 28, 2013 at 9:30pm ET/PT on ABC. The Muppets’ new film, Muppets Most Wanted, will arrive in theaters on March 21, 2014.
