LOS ANGELES (CBS) Cee Lo Green's Grammy performance Sunday night had it all - crayon colors, gliittery headpieces, feathers, space-age Muppets and a vamping movie star.

With a chorus of Muppets and other puppets gyrating in the background, Green, decked out in feathers at the keyboard, performed his hit "Forget You" with help from Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow.

The highlight came when Paltrow, dressed in a simple black jumpsuit that stood out among Green's peacock feathers, danced on top of the silver piano. She even slid across it on her stomach, kicking up her heels.

This isn't the first time the "Country Strong" actress collaborated with the "Lady Killer" singer. The two performed "Forget You," the cleaned up version of "F--- You," Jan. 15 on "Saturday Night Live."
