Lady Gaga with The Muppets is our new favorite thing

On Thursday night, Lady Gaga brought both The Muppets and the old-school variety show back to primetime.

At 9:30 p.m. on ABC, the Mother Monster was joined by Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and the rest of the multi-hued gang for a 90-minute "Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular."

Just watching the chart-topper and our favorite felt friends would've been enough, but Gaga brought a few other stars into the festive fold, including Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Kristen Bell.

It seems Gaga has a soft spot for the holidays all because of one talented green frog, and Thursday was her lucky night. After kicking off the "holiday spectacular" with a Muppet-filled performance of "Venus":


Gaga got to sing a duet with her love, Kermit the frog:


And get some life from the "Applause":


Miss Piggy wasn't pleased with Gaga's infatuation, but she's been putting the star in her place on Twitter.

The "ARTPOP" singer teamed up with human stars throughout the event, including Elton John:

We thought the spectacular was a boatload of fun, but perhaps we were under the same influence as Vevo:

    Lady Gaga is a fad. Her little monsters will get older and tire of her.Muppets haven't been the same since Hinson died.

    Charlie Brown rules and is a tradition.

    I'm Italian, just like Gaga. I don't like her music, especially, but I love whenever she gets nekked.

    One long commercial for her new album. Ruined the muppets for me, the only good part was the Elton John duet.

    This was AWFUL. I loved the Muppet Show. I even like Lady Gaga. The transitions were bad, the song with Joseph Gordon Levitt was off key. The dialog between numbers was too long and didn't say any thing. What a disappointment.

    Just loved seeing Kermie and the gang pretty much whoring themselves out to sell her new album. Just horrible. Please never air that again. Burn all copies.

    Watched the special and was disappointed. To call it a holiday special was really stretching it. Should have been billed as a Lady Gaga special with special guests the Muppets and left out any reference to holiday as it sorely lacked being a holiday special.
