Lady Gaga has teamed up with those lovable Muppets for a holiday show.
The show, titled Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, will air on Thanksgiving night (November 28).
Gaga will be perform songs from ARTPOP. She will also sing a special duet with Kermit. Some of the other Muppets will join her for a special rendition of “Applause.”
Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and RuPaul will also perform with Mother Monster. Actress Kristen Bell also appears in a special sketch with the Muppets and Gaga.
“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!”
“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.”
This special will air from 9:30-11pm ET on ABC.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has come a long way from his days on 3rd Rock from the Sun!
The actor covers the new issue of OUT magazine.
Gordon-Levitt, who makes his directorial debut with the movie Don Juan, opens up about the career struggles he experienced after his show wrapped in 2001.
On his vision for the movie Don Jon:
“I was interested in making a movie about how people treat each other like things, and all kinds of media can contribute to that. I’ve been working as an actor since I was a little kid, and I’ve been fascinated, and a little horrified, by the way people relate to images they see on screen. Sometimes I feel I am seen as a thing more than a person, and I don’t think that’s unique to actors. I think everyone is subject to that kind of pigeonholing.”
On his career after 3rd Rock from the Sun:
“I auditioned for lots of little movies and no one wanted to put me in their creatively challenging roles because they didn’t think I could do it. And I don’t blame them. I was known for being on a farcical television show.”
On being honest:
“I almost never lie anymore. I’ve learned that it’s not useful at all, and it actually just exacerbates the situation.”
Meghan McCain, daughter of John McCain, is throwing her hat into the talk show ring.
The activist will host her very own talk show, titled Raising McCain, on the new cable network Pivot when it launches in August.
The show will follow McCain on the road, and film her interactions with guests. “I keep telling people it’s like ‘Meet the Press’ meets ‘Jackass,'” McCain revealed at Pivot’s upfront on Wednesday.
MCain, who calls the show an “opportunity of a lifetime,” says the show will be “uncensored.”
The Pivot channel will target 18 to 34 year olds, and combine entertainment with social action, according to Pivot president Evan Shapiro.
“We’re told … that young people can’t have news because we’re just tweeting all the time, and that’s just bullshit,” McCain said at the presentation.
The first photo of British actor Tom Brady as the villain “Bane” was released on the net yesterday. Bane will be the main villain in the upcoming Batman movie, Batman 3: The Dark Knight Rises.
But who is “Bane?”
Bane is the test subject for a drug named Venom, which grants him superhuman strength and durability. The character first made an appearance in the 1997 film Batman & Robin starring George Clooney.
The Dark Knight Rises began filming a couple of weeks ago. Anne Hathaway will take on the role as Selina Kyle AKA Catwoman and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt as officer John Blake.
Christian Bale reprises the role of Batman. Michael Caine returns as Alfred the Butler, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.
With the Oscars just weeks away, it’s no surprise that Vanity Fair has put together a special issue for the occasion. The 2011 cover features an array of stars dressed in their best red carpet attire.
From L-R: Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, James Franco, Jennifer Lawrence, Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Jesse Eisenberg, Mila Kunis, Robert Duvall (LOL), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Garrett Hedlund, and Noomi Rapace.
