The Muppets may have won an Oscar for Best Song, but this performance of “Rainbow Connection,” featuring a duet between Glee’s Darren Criss and Kermit the Frog in the E! Network Oscar Pre-Show was a moment to remember.
The Oscar winning song from The Muppets, “Man or Muppet,” was not performed on the award show telecast, but did go on to win big. Criss and Kermit’s performance, around the pool at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, is the only place you can see Kermit in his Oscar tux.
