Lady Gaga will ring in the holidays by out-Muppeting The Muppets

Thanksgiving night is always weird. Turkey-hangovers, family-hangovers, hangover-hangovers. And the only thing on TV is whatever Christmas marathon TBS is doing. Home Alone on loop, most likely. And this year, Thanksgiving night is going to get even weirder, because Lady Gaga is teaming up with The Muppets — one of whom she skinned and wore on the red carpet! — for a 90-minute holiday spectacular aptly titled Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular. But that’s not all. Check out this weird confluence of guest stars: Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, RuPaul, and Kristen Bell. I know, right? Weird. But also kind of awesome.

Yesterday, Kermit the Frog stopped by The View to preview the upcoming holiday special.

And today, ABC released some promo photos of the festivities.

MISS PIGGY, LADY GAGA, KERMIT THE FROG“Come near him with a pair of scissors ever again and we’ll
see who’s wearing whose skin as a suit.”

LADY GAGA, THE MUPPETS‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through the castle
My monsters were having a Yuletide hassle
The tree was all trimmed in ghoulish things
Like werewolf fangs and vampire wings

LADY GAGA, THE MUPPETSHere comes Gaga Claus
Here comes Gaga Claus
Right down the Portal of the 12th Dimension of Queertar!

LADY GAGAI see you when you’re sleeping
I know when you’re awake.
I know if you’ve been bad or good
Because I’m an omnipresent lightning god

LADY GAGA, KERMIT THE FROGI really can’t stay.
Kermit, it’s cold outside.
I’ve got to go away.
Kermit, it’s cold outside.

The neighbors might think…
Kermit, it’s bad out there.
Say, what’s in this drink?
No cabs to be had out there.

Anyhoodle, Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular airs on Thanksgiving at 9:30 p.m. EST on ABC. In addition to dueting with Kermit, she’ll also sing with all the guest stars mentioned above (except KBell.) And she’ll perform a few songs from ARTPOP. Will you be watching?
