    No words can describe this. Amazing, Awesome, whatever you could say doesn't begin to explain it. It's freaking like the Beatles came back together. No excuses now, the Electric Mayhem are back and they're ready for every single new Muppet project there is.

    And they did their best song too. Just wow.
  2. This was awesome! Thank you Oscarfan for posting the video, I couldn't see the performance live. Bill knocked it out of the park! I'm so happy The Electric Mayhem is coming back full force.

    Just a little picture with Statler, Waldorf, Walter, a Muppaphone, a Java and Droop.

    Woah! Bill Baretta was great before, but now he really has it down!

    I'm not sold on Matt Vogal's Floyd here. Sounds like he's having some voice problems. He's great everywhere else, though!

    Bill's Dr. Teeth just IS Dr. Teeth at this point. I sometimes have a hard time differentiating Rowlf, Dr. Teeth and Bobo (in the "Life's a Happy Song Finale", I really do hear Rowlf saying "When there's someone by your side to sing," but in the movie it's Bobo). Here, though, he's just in fine form. :D

    The thing about Matt's Floyd right now is that he sounds a lot younger than Jerry. But he's got, for me, the most basic elements of Floyd down - the walk, and the laugh. Loving it. :sing:

    I've got to hear David's Janice talk more, though... really not sure how I felt about her here. It's good, though, that it's not just feeling like an imitation of what Richard was doing. I think the spirit of the character is still there, and that's what's most important. :flirt:

    This is a good point. The voices aren't 100% spot on, but the characterization is. And that's what's really important about the Muppets.

    This is so amazing! And with Travis Barker from my favorite band Blink-182! This is like a dream come true! Nerdgasm! But I agree with you guys about the voices! Love Dr. Teeth! and Janice needs to have more have that "Awwwrriiieeeeet" in her voice. More hippie lol.

    That was incredible! I agree with whoever said it earlier, someone is listening to us. It's been so long since we've seen the EMB that I was beginning to wonder if we would ever see them perform again. It almost makes up for them not performing in the new movie. Almost. ;)

    Awesome! I agree LouisTheOtter, this like Miss Piggy's guest hosting The Talk are full on scenes that could almost fit on The Muppet Show.

    I loved it! Bill, Matt, and David did a great job replicating Jim, Jerry, and Richard's vocals.

    Exactly. Expecting someone to replicate a voice perfectly is kind of an unreasonable request, in my opinion - you can't change the vocal chords you were born with! But, getting down the characterization is much more do-able (and more important to me anyway) and the more chances the performers have to perform their characters, the better and better this will get.
    I LOVED this performance. I love that it happened, I love how it happened... it just made me soooo happy! :D

    How to I describe this? Hmmm.... AMAZING! Who would think in this day and age you could just turn on the TV and see the Electric Mayhem? PURE AWESOMENESS!

    who would love to see them do a tour? does anyone know if the people who play the muppets, if they will be touring the uk?

    Well, if Matt took up smoking pretty heavily he could probably change his vocal chords to sound a little more raspy and aged, but I don't think that's the best way to capture Jerry's characters.

    Yeah, Floyd and Janice sounded a little off from their old voices, but I basically like where they are now vocally. There have been times when recasts have simply sounded like bad impressions, but I think Matt and David have done a good job of making vocal 'tributes' with accurate characterizations, and that's really all I can expect. Janice hasn't been Janice for 20 years; I'm willing to finally accept a change.
