Josh Groban is set to be a guest on a whole different kind of late-night talk show.

The singer will appear and perform on The Not-Too-Late Show, hosted by Sesame Street’s beloved furry red character Elmo, streaming on HBO Max Thursday.

“Stopping by the #NotTooLateShow with @elmo and singing the classic song, I Love Trash with my buddy Oscar!” Josh tweeted, referencing, of course, Oscar the Grouch.

He also posted a couple of pictures of what’s sure to be a lively appearance. In one photo, he poses with a bunch of trash next to Oscar, and in another, he’s seen laughing with Elmo.

Josh actually has a history with the Elmo, Oscar and the crew: He made a cameo appearance in the 2014 movie Muppets Most Wanted as a prison inmate with a good singing voice.  He also appeared on the ABC TV series The Muppets, which ran from 2015-2016.

The Not-Too-Late Show, a spin-off of Sesame Street, launched on HBO Max in May and features Elmo interviewing celebrity guests. Other guests so far have included the Jonas Brothers, Pentatonix and Lil Nas X.
