Lady Gaga and Elton John reunited for the first time since ending their public feud for the Muppets festive TV special, which aired on Thursday (28Nov13). The Rocket Man hitmaker accused the singer, who is godmother to his two sons, of avoiding him and refusing to take his calls over the summer (13). However, they appeared to be back on speaking terms when she joined him and his partner David Furnish for dinner in Los Angeles in September (13), and it now appears the two pop superstars are back on good terms again after he joined her for a two-song performance as part of Gaga's Thanksgiving Day TV special. Praising the Born This Way hitmaker before the performance began, Elton expressed he was happy to be a part of the taped show, stating, "You're my favorite girl, you know that. I love ya' (sic)..." She replied, "It's always nice when I get to spend time with you because you help me to stay inspired and put life into perspective." The pair then performed renditions of Elton's hit Bennie and the Jets - retitled Gaga and the Jets - and We Could Belong Together from her new album Artpop, during which they were joined by Kermit the Frog and The Great Gonzo, among other Muppet stars. Elton last appeared on TV with The Muppets in 1978, when he duetted with Miss Piggy on Don't Go Breaking My Heart, and played Crocodile Rock, Bennie And The Jets, and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road with assorted puppets on The Muppet Show.
