‘Glee’s’ Darren Criss sings with Kermit the Frog at Oscars pre-show

Darren and Kermit rehearsing

One of the biggest stars of the night at the 84th Annual Academy Awards ceremony was the one and only Kermit the Frog who looked handsome in his little tux with Miss Piggy on his arm and while ‘The Muppet Movie’ walked away with an Oscar for ‘Best Original Song’ fans were treated to an old Muppets classic through the E! News pre-Oscar special.

Kermit the Frog met ‘Glee’ star Darren Criss during the special and Criss couldn’t hold back his admiration for Kermit and the gang.  Fans were pleasantly surprised to learn that Kermit is a big ‘Glee’ fan, so when the host asked if the two singers would be willing to do a duet together, they were honored to sing with one another.

Darren and Kermit sang the famous Muppets song ‘The Rainbow Connection’, which brought back memories for all of the Muppet fans out there.  Criss had rehearsed the song with Kermit before hand and posted a picture of himself and Kermit on his Whosay Account along with a message that read; “At rehearsal with Kermit. And I thought I had a froggy voice! #Muppets #ERedCarpet”
