    Friday night don't miss the Muppets on a very special appearance on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon finale at 11:35 central, 12:35 eastern on NBC. Jimmy Fallon's talk show appearances with the Muppets are always great, so tune in or set your DVR for this must-see appearance.

    It was really nice of Jimmy to bring up the Legendary Muppet Pipes in the studio! :)

    Here's a preview of tonight's episode with a few seconds of the Muppets. The most obscure character I can see is Lips.

    Jimmy played drums with EM and all the other Muppets sang "The Weight"

    in my opinion i thought they were going to sing something muppety.

    Did they even plug MMW?

    It was amazing! All of the Muppeteers should have separate careers as singers!

    No, they didn't plug MMW. But that was a great number!

    Wow the EM band has really come alive in just the last few months. An awesome song and an awesome ending to a great show!

    Ha, what a great appearance that was!

    MMW wasn't plugged, c'mon, this is an end-of-show appearance.
    "The Weight", is that the song's name? Can someone please send me an MUP3?

    Heard :D, :sing:, :flirt:, :confused:, :eek:, :fanatic:, :rolleyes:, :mad:, :), and :concern: and :halo:.

    The only thing I didn't understand, and I know it's a spoiler alert I'm asking for, was the ending when Jimmy disappeared with some big end reveal that the audience applauded.

    Had to wait all night for it but that was well worth the wait. :jim:

    He walked off the set of the Late Night show and down the hallway to some doors with the new Tonight Show logo. He opened them and was cheered by his co-workers waiting inside.

    For the record, Jimmy Fallon did plug MMW when he was talking about the Muppets earlier in the show. He gave a wonderful speech in regards to the NBC Pipes.

    Anyway, that was a great final musical performance, probably my favorite of all the Muppet appearances on his show. I especially liked that it began with the Electric Mayhem, and that the audience progressively cheered louder as more and more characters entered the scene. Major kudos to Jimmy for helping bring the Muppets back in to the limelight =)

    Woah, they uploaded the video pretty quick! I managed to catch their appearance just in time. Even though it wasn't directly a promotional advertisement for Muppets Most Wanted, it was a great performance of a classic song! And I thank Jimmy Fallon and his Late Night crew for bringing the Muppets back in the spotlight, and while I'm not sure how well he will do hosting The Tonight Show, I'll wish him all the best!

    BTW, did anyone catch Bill Barretta's head pop up underneath Dr. Teeth when he is singing his solo around 1:10? ;)

    Ok I don't want people to hurt me over this but Janice's voice is really way off. Scooter and Floyd sounded awesome, but Janice's voice is way way to high.

    Thank you! Your always so good with MUP3's

    Also I thought it would have been funny if Constantine came out instead of Kermit. But just a opinion/option

    Wow, so much to love here!

    Singing a song from 1968 really works well for the Muppets, especially the Mayhem. The lighting and camera moves were all fantastic as they showcased the characters at their best. Loved the close-up on Janice's guitar at the beginning and the shots of her and Floyd singing together. It's very reminiscent of The Muppet Show. Having the characters subtly adjust their mics was fantastic, especially from Dr. Teeth about a minute into the song. I loved Robin's expression in the bottom right of the screen on the wide shot. Great to see Lips and the large number of characters present. Noticeably absent was Rowlf, but that's a minor quibble.

    Everything that's old is new again. What an incredible week for The Muppets and most especially The Electric Mayhem. It's going to be a great ride the next six weeks as we approach the theatrical debut of Muppets Most Wanted.
