Sneak peek of 'The Muppets' epic drum-off between Dave Grohl and Animal
Take a look at an early clip of tonight's episode of "The Muppets", where Dave Grohl and Animal go head-to-head in an epic drum-off.
Dave Grohl, the lead singer of the Foo Fighters and the former drummer of Nirvana, guest stars on "The Muppets" this week, along side actor Joseph-Gordon Levitt. Grohl can be seen facing off against Animal in the clip below. Dave Grohl previously appeared in "The Muppets" 2011 movie as Animal's replacement drummer.
The last time a drum-off was featured on a late night show was in May 2014, when actor Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith drummed-off to "Don't Fear the Reaper" on the "Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon".
The episode, titled "Going, going, Gonzo", will air December 1:
Gonzo debates attempting a stunt from his past that he never completed, prompting Kermit to schedule it for Up Late with Miss Piggy. Joseph Gordon-Levitt sings "Fly Me to the Moon" with Miss Piggy and plays poker with the Muppets. Dave Grohl performs the Foo Fighter song "Learn to Fly" and challenges Animal to a drum-off.
