It's a comeback even previously announced performer -- and AGT
judge -- David Hasselhoff
PEOPLE has learned that The Muppets' Kermit the Frog
and Miss Piggy
will perform on America’s Got Talent
’s live results show on Wednesday.
Adding to the night of oinking and croaking will be Statler
, who could probably give judges Piers Morgan
and Sharon Osbourne
a run for their money in the heckling department.
The Muppets are celebrating a banner year, the 40th anniversary celebration for Sesame Street
notwithstanding. Miss Piggy has returned as a fashion muse
for designers like Marc Jacobs
, and Kermit himself has been an inspiration for fashion-forward singer Lady Gaga
, who recently wore a signature Kermit coat and hat
for an appearance on a German talk show.
Alas, America’s Got Talent
winner, ventriloquist Terry Fator
, won’t be, um, on hand for the festivities.AGT
airs Tuesday and Wednesday (9 p.m. EST) on NBC.
