Kermit, Kylie and Me

Today I was supposed to post something musical like vocaloid but I have discovered something that I can hardly contain my excitement after watching it.

I was a loyal fan of Sesame Streets in my childhood. During those time, Elmo was non-existence and there were more colorful characters that stand out in the show such as Oscar, Ernie and Bert, Big Bird, Grover and Kermit the Frog. Back then Jim Henson was the voice of Ernie and Kermit the Frog and it took me a long time to recognize they were the same voice. LOL


Kermit the Frog always had a special place in my heart as he is always portrayed as a honest and down to earth fella. I enjoyed watching him as a news reporter on Sesame Streets and the main host on Muppet Show. Kermit is a good singer with some famous numbers under his belt. However he was not so lucky to have Ms. Piggy who always "threw" herself at him. Poor Kermit...

As I grew older to my teens, I started to go into Pop music although secretly I was still following Sesame Streets on TV every Saturday. I didn't dare to tell any of my friends that as I would be the joke like forever?

My Pop music chart include songs by Madonna, Michael Jackson, Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran, Rick Astley and Kylie Minogue in my teenage years. You have to give it to Kylie as till today, she is still one of the Pop singers around with good selling records. The first song that get me started to like Kylie was "I should be so Lucky". That was one of the songs that bring back some memories in my life.


So what is the possibility that my these two idols cross path? And it happened and I am still overwhelmed by this video of Kylie Minogue singing with Kermit the Frog.

* The video was taken from An Audience With... Kylie Minogue in 6 October 2001.

Isn't that amazing? You can see the audiences in the video bright up when Kermit started singing duel with Kylie. As you can see Kermit was Kylie childhood idol too.

Are Kermit or Kylie one of your idols at a certain period of your life?
