Miss Piggy Just Won the AMAs With a Tribute to Adele's "Hello"

Sorry, J. Lo, but it's true.

Miss Piggy and Adele have different strategies when it comes to dealing with a breakup, admittedly. Adele writes a song that makes the entire universe cry, Miss Piggy, meanwhile, just focuses on her making her ex, Kermit, cry (with tactics like yelling, screaming, and throwing things).

But what they do have in common is taking ~over~ the spotlight: Miss Piggy took on Adele's new song "Hello" in a commercial for The Muppets, and it's already one of the most talked about moments during the American Music Awards broadcast. Not even Ariana Grande or that Megan Trainor make-out can beat Piggy in that fur coat.

Some context, if you've missed it: On The Muppets, Miss Piggy and her beloved Kermie have broken up, and Kermit has moved on with a new pig girlfriend. Piggy has had a hard time dealing with it, and that shows in her Adele parody, complete with wind, leaves, and lots of office equipment thrown at poor Kermit. Doesn't he know better not to mess with a diva?
