Lady Gaga simulated sex with R. Kelly during her recent Saturday Night Live appearance, but the ARTPOP diva has something more, ahem, family-friendly planned for her next stint on network TV. On Thanksgiving night, Gaga will team up with the Muppets for a 90-minute special called Lady Gaga and the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular.

The upcoming program — Gaga’s second holiday special, following 2011’s A Very Gaga Thanksgiving — will air November 28 at 9:30 p.m. EST on ABC. Viewers can expect appearances by actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Kristen Bell, a duet from Mother Monster and Elton John, and further developments in the love-triangle between Gaga, Kermit the Frog, and Miss Piggy. (Remember, the “Applause” singer had Kermit on her arm at MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards.)

For a preview of the Holiday Spectacular, watch the above promo from ABC, and scroll down for an exclusive clip that aired on a recent episode of The View (via the NME).
