    It actually might be Bill as Link, and I don't think Beaker was confirmed...though I'm not sure

    That's what I'm wondering...if it's the same show or they do different segments or songs for each show.

    Considering how much seemed to be pre-recorded and pre-taped, I don't think there would be much deviating from the rundown.

    For those curious, David is Beaker. Peter is Link and Lips.

    Where did you hear this? Not that I don't believe you but just wondering since everyone has been speculating. I'm assuming Peter said something

    I was just about to post that David was Beaker, because I found a video where you could clearly see him below the puppet. So the official recasts are

    Matt - Kermit
    Peter - Robin, Lips, Link
    David - Beaker
    Eric - Newsman

    They also did the last verse of The Magic Shop after rainbow connection plus Crazy Harry starting up the fireworks! Matt sounds great here too!

    Well Peter really lucked out he has two great characters to work on and develop. I'm not to upset with the recasting of Lips even though he is A Steve original character. Truth is untill the ABC show Steve did not really do much with him. So it will be interesting to see if Peter develops him any further.
    Also it was ME who first suggested Eric for the Newsman. I think it's going to be an interesting thing to watch with these classic characters being recasted. I love Steve dearly, but it's obviously clear that the Muppets have moved on to bigger and maybe even better things without him

    I know it was just the first night but it seems like this was a huge win for the Muppets!

    Does anyone know if who were the obscure Muppets in that scene

    So no more Steve at all anymore?

    I just watched a clip of Matt singing Rainbow Connection...

    It finally clicked. That moment of recognition I had been hoping for finally occurred. Matt is Kermit the Frog and with the right choices, he's going to be amazing. I'm still going to be Steve's right-hand fan, but I'm going to support Matt just as equally.

    And I'm totally not writing this through tears...nope...not at all.

    Agree wholeheartedly. I had the same reaction. It was a "YES!!!" moment.

    And it sure is dusty in here, isn't it?

    I think Muppetboy09 deserves a huge SHOUTOUT for posting the clips from the show. Much THANKS

    I've seen clips on Snapchat, but that's all I've seen so far.

    First impressions? Awesome!

    I really didn't see much, though (I'm currently in VA)

    If only I had the money to go...

    Thanks for the video clips everyone. The show looked great!
    Matt's Kermit sounded great. Hopefully this could be an annual show. :)
