Oscars 2012: 'Glee's' Darren Criss and Kermit Perform Duet on 'Rainbow Connection' (Video)
Two of the most sought-after stars of TV and film have joined musical forces. Yes, we’re talking about breakout Glee star Darren Criss (who plays Blaine) and The Muppets heartthrob Kermit the Frog.
Get ready for cute overload. E! got the two stars together for a duet on the classic feel-good tune “Rainbow Connection,” from 1979's The Muppet Movie. Kermit and Criss (playing guitar, may I add) performed the song at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel during the network’s countdown to the Oscars on Sunday.
That may make up for the fact that the Oscar-nominated “Man or Muppet” from The Muppets co-starring Jason Segel (also a writer) and Amy Adams won’t be performed during the awards show.
