"In the wake of Elmo"s terrible betrayal, the Simpsons puppets wish to announce they stand felt-shoulder-to-shoulder with katy perry," the New York Daily News quoted Al Jean, an executive producer of 'The Simpsons", as telling Entertainment Weekly.
Perry, whose duet with Elmo was cut from 'Sesame Street" after parents complained the singer showed too much skin, will get a second chance to sing with puppets this winter as a guest-star on The Simpsons.
The pop star will appear as herself in an unusual live-action segment, alongside the other Simpsons characters who will be transformed into muppet-like puppets.
In the episode, due to air Dec. 5, the 'Teenage Dream" singer reportedly plays crusty bartender Moe's girlfriend, and leads the gang in a rousing rendition of the 'The 39 Days of Christmas".
