Lady Gaga, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and more of the Muppets crew are ready to ham it up this Thanksgiving!

The “Do What U Want” singer, 27, posted to Instagram a sneak peek of the musical special, Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, which will air Thursday (9:30 p.m. ET) on ABC.

The video features Gaga singing “Applause” with Kermit, Piggy, one of Gonzo’s chickens and all other assorted Muppets bopping along. Watch the clip below.

“We have a long history with Ms. Gaga, so we jumped at the chance to do a holiday special with her,” Kermit said in a statement earlier this month. “We won’t even mind if she mistakes some of the Muppets for pieces of her wardrobe – again.”

Gaga and Kermit will perform a duet, which is sure to infuriate Miss Piggy, who may or may not already be annoyed about “Swine,” a song on her new album ArtPop. (For all we know she takes it as a compliment!)

The holiday special will also welcome Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kristen Bell and RuPaul.
