To celebrate Sesame Street's 50th Anniversary, the Muppets will be stopping by NPR for a Tiny Desk performance on June 10.

Tiny Desk has hosted a number of iconic acts, like The Roots, Erykah Badu, and Wu-Tang Clan, but to have Elmo, Big Bird, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, and friends is extra special. So special, they even got their very own trailer for the session, which was revealed on Friday (June 7).

According to a release, the Muppets performed "Sunny Days," "What I Am," "Sing After Me," a medley featuring their hits, and even had the audience sing along to a special rendition of "The People In Your Neighborhood" featuring NPR's All Songs Considered creator Bob Boilen and Arts Desk reporter, Neda Ulaby.

Watch Boilen meet Elmo below and look out for the performance when it arrives on June 10.
