Lady Gaga Battles Miss Piggy for Kermit’s Love in Thanksgiving Special

Check out a trailer for ‘Lady Gaga and the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular’

It’s going to be an awkward Thanksgiving for Kermit. In a new trailer for Lady Gaga and the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, the iconic frog is stuck in a love triangle between the Artpop singer and Miss Piggy.

Besides that bad romance, the 90-minute Thanksgiving special will also feature a pair of musical duets: Gaga will sing with both Kermit and rock legend Elton John. The event will also feature guest appearances from actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Kristen Bell.

Lady Gaga has a long history with the Muppets and a fairly extensive Kermit obsession: she showed up with the frog as her boy-toy at the 2009 VMAs, and even wore a dress made of Kermit toys on German television later that year. Gaga planned a cameo in Jason Segel’s 2011 film revival The Muppets, but her appearance wasn’t included in the final project for undisclosed reasons.

“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!” Gaga said last month in a statement. She was also quick to quiet the love-triangle drama. “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 and the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular will air on Thanksgiving night at 9:30 p.m. EST on ABC. It’s Gaga’s second holiday special, following 2011’s A Very Gaga Thanksgiving. Gaga will also be featured in the upcoming Muppets sequel Muppets Most Wanted, which is due in theaters on March 21st, 2014.
