The Elmo show must go on in the wake of a fourth sexual abuse accusation against Kevin Clash, the longtime puppeteer for Sesame Street who recently resigned.

During Michael Bublé’s pre-taped Christmas special last night on NBC, Michael Bublé: Home for the Holidays, Bublé sang a duet with Clash-as-Elmo.

“There was never a discussion to lose him,” Bublé told Xfinity. [Bublé and NBC did not respond to EW's request for comment]. “The truth is, Elmo didn’t do anything. He’s a three-year-old monster. He’s innocent, sweet, and funny — and very polite, too….the deal is that Elmo is featured on my special and that’s kind of how I really felt about it. »
