Muppets Perform ‘Forget You’ Sans Cee Lo Green
At the 2011 Grammys, the Jim Henson Puppets joined Cee Lo Green and Gwyneth Paltrow to perform ‘Forget You,’ which what was generally regarded as the most memorable performance of the evening. Now, the Muppets have recorded the song without Cee Lo, turning it into a silly (okay, sillier) tune without any actual words.
The Muppets’ ‘Forget You’ is performed by Camilla and The Chickens — “the princesses of poultry,” as Kermit calls them — and features the animals clucking the melodies in front of glitzy lights and stage props. A few of the other Muppets back them up. Animal plays drums and Rowlf is on piano.
The Camilla recording of ‘Forget You’ appears on the soundtrack for the next ‘Muppets’ movie, which stars Jason Segel. The video features clips from the film, including scenes of Miss Piggy and Kermit fighting, and Segel walking the red carpet with Kermit. Other Muppet favorites like Gonzo, the Swedish Chef, and Statler and Waldorf also make appearances.
The ‘Forget You’ video is pretty ridiculous, but as a trailer of sorts for the movie, it serves its purpose. Seeing all these Muppets definitely has excited for the movie! ‘The Muppets’ hits theaters next Wednesday, one day before Thanksgiving.
