I'll be honest, I just kind of had this on in the background for noise today, I didn't really pay that much attention to the actual episode. :smirk:

And I will say I honestly can't tell if Caroll or Eric was voicing Oscar today.

I liked it well enough. The Dragon Dance song was pretty catchy and Grover was easily the best part (I liked the visual gag that the sticky note stuck to his hand read "Stick To Your Goals"). And yes, that was Eric as Oscar.

John Legend's song was probably the longest they've done since they did this new format and it was pretty nice. As much as I like the big brassy songs, I'm glad they find time for slower ones.

Wasn't expecting to see SG 2.0; they've seen be doing exclusively Cookie Monster formats this season.

It was Eric. The best of the street story was the Dragon Dance song. It had some funny moments like Grover acknowledging the musical number. The song with John Legend was good. Although, I wish we got a solo from Zoe. We haven't really heard Jen singing a full verse as Zoe yet. I liked Big Bird, Ernie and Bert's cameo in EW. I also like that Smartie's grandfather is a crank phone.
