As recently reported, both CeeLo and fellow coach on The Voice, Blake Shelton, have released Christmas albums this year. Blake’s album Cheers, It’s Christmas includes duets with his mom as well as his friend Michael Buble; CeeLo’s album CeeLo’s Magic Moment includes a duet with…Kermit the Frog.
And rest assured, it’s very cool.
For his song “All I Need Is Love” CeeLo teams up with Kermit and the rest of the Muppets gang for a very soulful Christmas carol that pays tribute to The Muppet Show classic “Mahna Mahna.”
In the video, CeeLo dons his holiday best—a red patent leather trench coat—and lets everyone know that all he wants for Christmas is love, which works out perfectly for Miss Piggy who was definitely eyeing the cherry red convertible he rode in on.
While Kermit, Gonzo and Fozzie Bear get a chance to sing (and rap), CeeLo gets turned into his own Muppet named Lo-Co. They even managed to recreate his coat!
At the end of the night, CeeLo scraps the party and heads off into the night with Santa (otherwise known as Craig Robinson, who plays Darryl on The Office) in his flying Rolls Royce.
We imagine he’s off to see his baby, since that’s really all he wants for Christmas.
Watch the video for “All I Need Is Love,” from The Voice judge’s holiday album, CeeLo’s Magic Moment.
Kermit will also join CeeLo on The Voice tonight (Nov. 27) for a duet of his hit song “It Ain’t Easy Being Green.”
