Like is there a prerecorded track that is playing and the puppeteers perform along to that?
Yea pretty much, check out the Of Muppets and Men documentary on YouTube (the clip's called Of Muppets and Men Part 4). They show the whole process of a song being pre recorded and then the puppeteers performing to the track later.
I think second wiring from another person puppeteering while the other controls the actual puppet's mouth. Not sure how they did it with the dancing legs at outside lands tho
Heralde is correct that the musical numbers (not just The Mayhem) were pre-recorded and then the Muppeteers would perform the characters to the track being played. I assume this technique was used in the films as well. As for Outlands - someone, and I honestly do not remember who, but someone who would know (Matt Vogel maybe?) commented they were singing live. They had multiple puppeteers so one (I assume the main performer did the mouth and others did arms and legs. It was beautiful in that they made no attempt to hide the fact that these were puppets performing. They were all in black, so as not to be too distracting, but aside from the beauty of their songs there is beauty in the puppeteering, and I am happy people could see that.
