    Honestly, I don't care, I'm sick of these holiday concert specials; and hasn't Michael Buble's relevance died out, like two years ago?

    It's Christmas specials. A Bubbling Mikey concert is noting compared to Hallmark's onslaught of garbage, bargain basement, copyright infringement movies staring overtly Christian Q-List celebrities. Yeah, we have The Grinch, Rudolph, Charlie Brown's 4 specials, and stuff like that. But it's a money making holiday with a bunch of terrible factory made telefilms to make sure we spread the message of "it's not about getting, it's about giving" with the huge commercials for buying stuff in the middle. Heck, the channel is owned by a company that makes cards and ornaments! They need to keep telling people to buy stuff in the guise of completely ripping off The Santa Clause. BOTH films. They made 2 complete below the quality of "The Asylum" mockbusters of both films!

    And we're denying Michael Boboli brand Pizza Crust a concert. :rolleyes:

    Hee, it's cute that Michael invites a muppet guest to appear on each of his Christmas specials every year so far!:) Hm...something tells me about that image in the article he and Piggy are gonna perform Baby it's Cold Outside (even though he recently sang a duet of the song with Idina Menzel on her newly released Christmas album)!

    Just stating my opinion on the appearance...:)

    I wish there were more muppets with Miss Piggy, but at least there is something with the muppets this holiday.

    AH! The... eh... that song. The one about the...eh... kinda aggressive guy advancing on the woman who doesn't want it.

    Something tells me that Piggy should do a gender flipped version. That would totally be in character.

    It's not a rape song, okay? It's not. Get over it.

    Hey wait a sec, didn't she sing the song gender-flipped on that CMA Country Christmas special a few years ago?? Lol:p

    I have no idea why I have the feeling that she'll be singing the song again, but it just seems like that that and Santa Baby are her trademark Christmas songs or the songs she usually performs.:p

    According to my parents, the song was original gender flipped, lol.

    Yes, :mad: did perform "Baby, It's Cold Outside" with Vince Gil at the CMA's, a far superior version to the performance of the same song with Rudolph Nuriyev in Season 2 of TMS.
    Frankly I hope for some other song than that or "Santa Baby". The last time the latter was done was on last year's Lady Gaga Thanksgistmas special and it didn't rully help as a highlight for me.

    On the whole that special was rushed, and Piggy's Santa Baby cover was pretty weak and tossed in last minute. I'm not one to call that special awful so much as disappointing that they couldn't have worked harder on it earlier in the year to get something truly special. But yeah, she sang that song a bit too much for my taste. The VMX one was at least funny and fitting. Now it's like her signature Christmas song, even though it lacks a certain...BAHdum bum bum....

    Agreed, the VMMC version was funny if only for its part/connection within the entire Moolan Scrooge parody and the Lady Marmalot joke between Piggy and Kermit at the end. But if you want a brassier or bolder version, you should get Piggy's rendition from the Green & Red Christmas Album.

    The CD one's pretty good too. But they really need to find another Christmas song for Piggy to sing. Though, the only Christmas song I can think of at the top of my head is Weird Al's The Night Santa Went Crazy. Doesn't help that I just watched a bunch of Weird Al videos on Youtube, huh?

    Saw it on Canadian TV last night. Just two Piggy bits, but they both came off pretty well - a dressing-room back-and-forth with Michael Buble (part of which I missed because the phone rang at an inopportune time) and a pretty cool reworking of "Baby, It's Cold Outside."

    I think you Yankees will enjoy it once it hits NBC tonight. And, as always, it's great to see Michael Buble showing the Muppets some love (I still enjoy the Cookie Monster cameos in last year's special).
