Does it make up for the lack of Muppets during the actual show? Sadly, no.
Nevertheless, this makes our hearts soar! Two of our favorite celebs singing one of the best songs ever written. Heaven!
Before the Oscars kicked off, Darren Criss and the ever handsome Kermit the Frog got together to perform The Rainbow Connection at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
Check out the video (above) to enjoy the beautiful melody of these two beautiful souls!
What a way to kick things off! We'll be humming it all night!
