Lady Gaga had already conquered the worlds of music, entertainment, and fashion, but now the new queen of pop music takes on a new challenge. This Thanksgiving Lady Gaga wants to also be thought of as holiday master of ceremonies. She’s like a Charlie Brown special, but with dirtier songs. The ninety minute special will bring together Gaga, The Muppets, and a bevy of big time celebrities. Here’s the opening of ABC’s synopsis of the holiday event.
On Thanksgiving night, NOVEMBER 28 (9:30-11:00 p.m., ET), the ABC Television Network will air the 90-minute special, Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular. The broadcast offers an avant-garde twist on the classic holiday variety show as Lady Gaga goes backstage with The Muppets, making a performance dream come true for the multi-platinum singer songwriter when they combine forces to sing holiday favorites and Lady Gaga hits.
So if you were looking for avant-garde holiday fare then you’ve come to the right place. If that doesn’t seem exciting enough then check out the actual lineup for the show. Some of these pairings before could only be experienced along with severe hallucinogenics.
The special features Lady Gaga performing songs from her new album, ARTPOP, available Monday, November 11 on Streamline/Interscope Records. Performance highlights include a duet between Lady Gaga and Kermit the Frog, a dazzling rendition of Gaga’s hit “Applause” with special Muppet guests, and performance duets with Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and RuPaul. Kristen Bell appears in a special sketch alongside the Muppets and Lady Gaga. In addition, Swedish Chef, Beaker and Animal will perform special Muppet renditions of the holiday classics “Deck the Halls” and “Jingle Bells.”
The special had me at “Lady Gaga duet with Kermit”. This is a great event for the whole family to watch because of the mass appeal of Gaga and The Muppets. Also with the special being on Disney owned ABC you can expect a wholesome and fun Lady Gaga. The artist who had dance sex with R. Kelly on SNL will not be in attendance that night. Check out the ABC promo for the Holiday Spectacular.
