Kermit the Frog made a surprise appearance today at Newport Folk Festival 2019, and he was backed by a band that included Janet Weiss on drums. Halfway through a performance of “Rainbow Connection,” Kermit told the audience, “Please welcome my friend, Jim James!” The My Morning Jacket frontman came out and sang the final half of the song as a duet with Kermit. Watch it all happen below.

Weiss announced earlier this month that she was no longer a member of Sleater-Kinney. Yesterday at Newport Folk Festival, Dolly Parton made a surprise appearance during Brandi Carlile and the Highwomen’s set.
