The two-hour season finale will re-air on Saturday (August 25, 2007) at 8/7c on NBC (check local listings for details). The Muppets appear in the first hour of the show (just a little after the 20-minute mark). Contest finalist (and eventual season winner) Terry Fator (a ventriloquist/impressionist/singer) performed the classic James Taylor song "You've Got a Friend" with Kermit the Frog. Kermit even brought some of his own back-up singers - a quartet of Muppet chickens that clucked along. Afterwards the act was judged by the panel of judges; Animal, Beaker and the Swedish Chef parodied the regular judges by taking the judges’ seats to give their opinions of the act. Fator was also surprised with a special “good luck” video from the one and only Miss Piggy. The whole Muppet-filled appearance lasted just over 10-minutes and was a real highlight of the evening.
So be sure to set the VCR, or mark your calendars so you don’t miss it (again). It was nothing short of good old fashion Muppet fun. And congratulations to Terry (and all his puppet friends) on winning season 2 of America’s Got Talent!
