Plans to Run a Star-Studded Holiday Special in America as Well as Great Britain

Written by Chief Editor.

As revealed some time ago, Elton will be among the guests when ABC broadcasts Lady Gaga & The Muppets' Holiday Spectacular on Thanksgiving night, November 28.

The show runs from 9:30-11:00 p.m. ET, and offers an avant-garde twist on the classic holiday variety show as Lady Gaga goes backstage with the Muppets, making a performance dream come true for the songwriter when they combine forces to sing holiday favourites and Gaga hits.

The programme will also have a sneak peek from the upcoming Disney movie Muppets Most Wanted, which features Gaga herself in a cameo performance. Disney's Muppets Most Wanted hits theaters March 21, 2014.

And across the pond, the UK's Channel 5 will offer the broadcast as a Christmas special.
