    And I really don't believe Steve was even there. Voice aside, the puppetry was not to his quality.

    Ditto. Steve was AWOL. Or... in this case, MIA. :p

    I'd give it 2 or 3 stars out of 5.

    I think Kermit was great! I watched it several times and I think it sounds like Jim... and to me that's a very good thing. I am looking forward to seeing where this goes... Piggy was spot on too:)

    I am rewatching it... And .. Steve just has to be sick, i'm sure of it...

    But what i am wondering, is why they got such a amateur performer to do Kermit. And they could have lip synced an old "Dont Go Breaking My Heart" performance...

    SOOOO--> Miss Piggy was devine. She looked wonderful. Her Hair was great, outfit was great! Voice was great! Just wonderful

    Agreed on all parts. I just rewatched it too. I can't tell who that is... but Kermit sounds like Scooter when he handed off the CD. So strange. Steve has to be sick. I completely agree.

    I would say Eric performance was pretty much perfect~ Could you tell me what was off. I am curious to know.

    I agree that Eric was flawless here. If Steve had been here this would've been a perfect appearance. *sigh* Oh well. Next time. This is just a bump in the road.

    I agree with you. I thought Piggy was perfect! Her singing has improved so much and she looked great; She was wonderful!

    Great review! Brings up a thought… does anyone know the Muppet’s connection to America’s Got Talent? I saw them on with Terry Fator two years ago and it seemed a little more relevant with that act. Seemed a little, oh, forced in tonight. Not that I’m complaining… I love seeing them get exposure. Just curious.

    hmm

    Maybe with all the muppets stuff coming up steve was doing something else kermit related?

    I believe he seemed stiff because he didn't have much dialogue other than that he was very much Kermit:)

    Just a thought... if it wasn't Steve that is big shoes to fill. If we are Muppet fans and this is a new guy lets see what this guy can do with more script. The script seemed very one sided.

    The actual song was a recording, the little bit of Kermit running up with the DVD was live, and did sound like David Rudman's Scooter. Most likely this was Rudman filling in for Steve, lyp-synching to Steve's recording.
    If someone knows different and for sure then please do correct me.

    This is what I was thinking. It did sound just like Rudman... so... yeah, I'm thinking he was filling in.

    WHERE IS STEVE? i liked that song and everything about the appearance, but i want steve! he sounded horrendous. piggy did awesome. i just wish when kermit came into the dressing room, that she would've given him the classic karate chop, instead of chasing him away. that's what i thought was gonna happen, and i got excited, only to be let down. the chickens were awesome. it was over all a pretty cool appearence, but i just wish that STEVE WAS THERE! ! !

    I just saw this and the difference was apparent immediately. All due respect to the performer who took on Kermit, though--that's a high profile and risky thing to do, so congrats to him for having done it.

    But seriously, I hope this was just a case of busy / ill Steve. Not that I hope Steve is ill, of course, but it makes me incredibly uneasy to think about Kermit in anyone else's hands right now. I really LIKE Steve's Kermit. I'm comfortable with him--he's just Kermit! Anyone else doing new performances with Kermit would just feel phony to me.
