LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- "Lady Gaga & The Muppets' Holiday Spectacular," which was taped in Los Angeles, is to air Thanksgiving night, Nov. 28, ABC announced Thursday.

The variety special is to feature appearances by Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, RuPaul and Kristen Bell.

Lady Gaga is to perform several songs from her new album, "ARTPOP," as well as a duet with Kermit the Frog.

"I was so excited when ABC called me about doing a holiday special this year," she said in a statement. "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."
