While the UK version of the show wrapped at the beginning of the year, the US edition of the show that originated in South Korea is still airing its fifth season, and it is just as exciting across the pond.
The judges Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger were all visibly thrown by the beloved puppet being on the stage.
When the Snail’s hat was removed by two members of staff, host Niecey Nash, who squealed with fright upon his reveal, led the parade of confused looks as nothing was there.
All was settled when the It Isn’t Easy Being Green crooner popped up out of another opening in the Snail costume, coming out hand first.
Springing out of their chairs, the judges could not contain their excitement.
Ken Jeong exclaimed he was the “most famous guest” on the show.
Snail was touted to be other people, such as Seth McFarlane, Billy Crystal and Jay Leno, but no one had any clue it was none other than Kermit The Frog.
“Hiya, how ya guys doing,” The Muppet puppet asked the applauding crowd after having his identity declared to the world, “It’s as they say it isn’t easy being greener but sometimes it's even harder being a snail.”
