Tony Bennett almost took a big tumble after his performance at the 2016 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but he was saved by Miss Piggy!

The 90-year-old singer was wrapping up a performance with the star of The Muppets when the float they were standing on started to move and he lost his footing.

Don’t worry about Tony, though, because his rep says he is doing just fine. “Tony is great and thanks the crowd along the parade route for their warmth and he wishes everyone a very happy Thanksgiving,” the rep told the NY Post.

Other stars pictured in the gallery at the parade include Daya, Aloe Blacc, Regina Spektor, Brett Eldredge, Sarah McLachlan, and Hamilton‘s Christopher Jackson.
