A Fourth of July celebration isn't a Fourth of July celebration without The Muppets and without former American Idol winner Phillip Phillips!
The Mups and the Double P are joining the all-star line-up for the 34th annual broadcast of PBS' A CAPITOL FOURTH, live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
Phillips will perform his hit single "Raging Fire" from his sophomore album Behind the Light. As an added special treat for the entire family, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy will be on hand to celebrate America's 238th birthday, and performing the Oscar-nominated song "Rainbow Connection" with the National Symphony Orchestra.
"I love Washington D.C. Not only was it built on a swamp, but this is where I got my start in show business – on a local TV show in 1955," said Kermit the Frog. "Being in D.C. is like coming home!"
"Moi is thrilled to be part of this glorious patriotic celebration," adds Miss Piggy, who insists she's ready for all the pomp and pageantry. "Let's face it, wherever I go there's usually fireworks."
The program airs on PBS Friday, July 4, 2014 from 8 to 9:30PM ET. So either tune in live or if you are out a beach party or a BBQ, why not DVR that shit?
What are you doing on the Fourth? Celebrate safely, please!
