    They haven't used Janice a lot in recent years, so I think it's probably a matter of that and how comfortable David is performing the character. His Scooter is excellent, but yeah, I don't think he's quite nailed Janice yet. Her voice sounds less off in this than it did in the Super Bowl ad, though.

    I thought it was wonderful! I recorded the whole thing onto dvd ! Miss Piggy got a solo and you could hear the crowed cheering for her when she appeared! The song they sung had a kinda 70s vibe! Classic :D :sing: :flirt: :cool: :halo:

    PS. Was I the only one that noticed Miss Piggy making a few laughing sounds at the end of the song around 3:29 but didn't move her mouth to them. Only thing I could think of for this would be that the Muppet voices were previously recorded and that the puppeteers didn't sing the song live or maybe the puppeteer in charge of Piggy made a few laughing sounds but forgot to move Miss Piggy's mouth along to them lol :mad:

    That's right... We're on the Road to Muppets Most Wanted. And we ain't got No Room For Boring. So let's get this thing Moving Right Along. We'll be Together Again. From the Big House to Manhattan Melodies. It's Something So Right. Cause, hey! The Muppets are Doing a Sequel!

    *Explodes with Muppety excitement.

    It was lovely to see Robin included in this. I am beginning to wonder if he might have a bigger role to play in MMW. It was also cool to see Bunsen:confused:, Scooter;) , and Walter:fanatic: sing in this as well. Lately Zoot has had more things to say than he has had in the past 20 yrs.:cool:

    The song "The Weight" was sung by the band The Band in 1968.

    Thanks for uploading. Now that I don't have a means of taping late night TV anymore, it's always good to watch those online. I liked the Kermit/Piggy part too. The first time in a while there was a sweet moment between them rather than fighting or anything like that.

    I do wonder though if David is going more for an Erin Ozner Janice voice. That didn't sound much like Richard's here or in the Toyota commercial except for the addition of a few "fer sure's" here and there. I don't know. Maybe it's just my ears.

    Oh, right. Dwayne mentioned it too. Again, I'm still sort of jumping the gun with my posts.

    I love that this was how Jimmy wanted to go out--sing a great song with the Muppets, and just walk out the door to the Tonight Show. That's class, man! It also makes me extra happy that he will be at the helm of the Tonight Show when Muppets Most Wanted comes out. Great performance all around, and Jimmy deserves his own "Thank You Note" for being such a great friend to the Muppets over the years!

    At first I wondered if this would just be the Electric Mayhem. In fact during Janice's first shot I thought I saw a glimpse of Lips, but then after the camera widened to show the rest of the band and Lips wasn't shown with them I wondered if I had been seeing things (in fact I still might have, haven't watched it since last night) but the camera didn't get a good shot past Janice. Then more Muppets showed up, and then I saw Lips in the final shot. Hooray!

    I'm still very tired from being up to watch this, but it was worth it. The Muppets should be Jimmy Kimmel's first guests on The Tonight Show (and they should have followed him out the studio doors). And when Kimmel left the stage to leave the building, I wondered if Sweetums or Thog would show up backstage.

    I'm sure this will lead to many more Muppet performances on The Tonight Show. This will be huge for the Muppets.

    This was one of the best Muppet-related performances I've ever seen, it had the right amount of humor and and sentiment that the Muppets have at their best. Plus it was a lot of fun to see them sing something in such a classic rock vein. Loved this performance.

    I saw the clip on YouTube and it was outstanding! What a way to end Jimmy Fallon's final show before he hosts The Tonight Show. So many Muppets...Kermit, Miss Piggy, Walter, The Electric Mayhem including Lips, Robin, Pepe, Rizzo and many others! One of the best performances by the Muppets I've ever seen!

    That was the best Muppet performance I've ever seen done on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I almost cried. :cry:

    Such a great performance and presentation, which would of been difficult to perform live with so many characters performed by the same puppeteers all on at once. I salute you!

    Wow, what a performance! I wasn't expecting it to be so professional and heartfelt! I was genuinely surprised at all of the Muppets included (OMG- Lips!) and I love how each group was cheered as they popped up. Of course the night was all about Jimmy and kudos to him, but we all know he's not the main focus here.

    I giggled in the group shot at the end where Robin was just grinning cheekily into the camera from the right corner. So adorable! Well done to the performers for a fantastic job, but what else would we expect from them?!
