Jimmy Fallon Gets Upstaged By The Muppets

How to put a new spin on a Christmas classic? Here’s how: you recruit the greatest (felt) performers of all time to sing it. Queen revivalists The Muppets just joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for a snowflake-sprinkled rendition of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” just in time to spread a little cheer. We’re still waiting for Jason Segel’s effort to return the Muppets to the big screen, but this will get us at least through the holidays. Could it be It’s just a matter of time til The Muppet Show is back on the air and Miss Piggy is releasing her own pop album? Fingers crossed! Vid of Kermit, Fozzie, Animal, Jimmy, and a partridge… well, you know… after the jump.

The Muppets ft. The Roots and Jimmy Fallon – “12 Days of Christmas”

Note to Saturday Night Live: If you’re going to do The Muppets, nothing is better than the real thing.
