The Muppets kicked off a three night residency at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday. Yes, the Muppets are hitting the concert stage for three straight nights. 

Sunday's first show for the muppets included a cover of "The Rainbow Connection," and it has gone viral online:

Well, all ears were focused on Kermit the Frog.

You may recall that Kermit got a new voice: the character had been voiced by Steve Whitmire for years. 

Over the summer the studio replaced Whitmire with Matt Vogel as the permanent voice of Kermit the Frog in all projects. Whitmire was handpicked by Jim Henson as his successor for the character. 

Of course, it's one of the first clips we've seen of the "new Kermit" singing a song:

Do you hear the difference from this Kermit's voice?  Do you like it?
