Very exciting news…but what about The Muppets???
We're pleased to announce that Cirque du Soleil will be featured on the Feb. 26 Oscars telecast, where they'll be doing a three minute performance featuring more than 50 artists! Wow!
Here's what Cirque du Soleil special events director Yasmine Khalil had to say about it:
"The theme is very much in line with paying tribute to the movie-theater experience."
Khalil also mentioned that their show would be "unique for this one evening," and that they wouldn't be taking anything from their cinema-themed show Iris (aside from the fact that Danny Elfman will once again compose the music).
Again, this sounds great - but if there's time in the telecast for a Cirque show, then why can't THE MUPPETS also perform???? WTF?!?!?!?!?!
