    Great performance! Bill of course always the miracle man with Jim's characters. Janice and Floyd: I don't know who's doing them, but holy guacamole Spicoli, they sounded great! If I have one nit pick, the good doctor (particularly his right hand) was playing a bit spastic, but this was just a great great great performance.

    Oh yeah, and Zach Levi is a d***.

    Recently it's been David Rudman and Matt Vogel as Janice and Floyd (respectively). So... we can probably assume that's who it was.

    Now... I'm not going to look at this thread anymore until I see the performance! :attitude:

    Lips? LIPS! Oh my god, I was shocked! I'm happy that they did Run Run Rudolph. Janice and Floyd's backing was really great, and I was happy that Animal didn't grunt too much. But LIPS! Where's he been? This is better than Dr. Strangepork being in the Bohemian Rhapsody virmup!

    Loved Electric Mayhem, they were smokin' though the kids seemed a bit confused as to what they were watching. I'm also not sure what Zachary Levi meant by 'who knew they could sing?' since they've been singing for over 30 years :mad: Awesome start, hope to see more throughout the program

    Wait, it just started, and I have't seen the band used yet.

    I can't get the link to work for me, but I am so glad that Lips is in this. I'm really excited about the Muppets appearance now... Too bad Lips wasn't in the Bohemian Rhapsody video. Sure, there might not have been a trumpet sound in the song, but there also wasn't a saxaphoen sound, and Zoot was still included (and he held his saxaphone anyway).

    Wow, I started watching 20 minutes in thinking they wouldn't be on right away (and because I forgot) but I guess I already missed it. I hope someone recorded it and posts it.

    You didn't miss it. The person who posted that was an hour ahead and got to see it sooner. They're still coming. Don't stop watching!

    Muppets were just on! I loved 'em! Gonzo looked a little better, his head didn't look so large (for some reason, he looks better from the side to me).
  15. theprawncracker

    theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    Okay, so I just saw Gonzo and everybody, but I have seen no Mayhem. I guess it started an hour earlier or something? But I checked my NBC an hour ago and it was just local news. Very, very strange. I'm hoping Hulu or NBC.com will have it all tomorrow or that the Mayhem will just show up later for me. *shrug* Gonzo and the gang were AWESOME, though!

    Yeah me too, Rod stewart is on and there is only like 15 minutes left and no electric mayhem on my side either! This better not happen!
  17. I guess maybe the East coast got 2 hours while everyone else got only 1? It started at 7 here (Pennsylvania) and it seems each artist has performed once per hour.

    That's what it's sounding like to me too. I've been talking to Tough Pigs about it on Twitter and they got an extra hour that I didn't get so... yeah, that must've been what happened. I'm sure it'll be online at some point tomorrow! :sing:

    I didn't see The Electric Mayhem preform but I did see Gonzo, Rizzo and the others sing "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" from the Red & Green Christmas album and I loved it!

    And I have to agree, Gonzo did look a little better.
