"Baby, It's Cold Outside," is a popular duet in which one singer attempts to convince the other to stay rather than going home through a snowstorm. It was performed in episode 213 of The Muppet Show as a duet between Miss Piggy and a reluctant Rudolf Nureyev. In contrast to the original song, the attempted seduction took place inside a steam room, allowing for comic irony and a chance to show Nureyev in a towel.
Miss Piggy covered the song again in 2011, for the TV special CMA Country Christmas. Her duet partner was Vince Gill. Lady Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levitt sang the song in the 2013 special, Lady Gaga & the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular. Miss Piggy covered the song yet again in 2014 for the TV special Michael Bublé's Christmas in New York. Her duet partner was Michael Bublé.
