I have a soft spot for Sesame Street. I mean, I grew up with Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, and Oscar the Grouch.
So I was completely charmed by their performance at NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert.
The Tiny Desk Concert is a video series in which artists come and perform at the desk of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen. Florence + The Machine, Wu-Tang Clan, Yo-Yo Ma, and Erykah Badu are just a few of the many, many artists who have performed at the desk.
As expected, Sesame Street’s turn was absolutely wonderful.
Watch the #TinyDesk performance: The @SesameStreet crew, including Elmo, Grover, Big Bird and Cookie Monster, visited @NPR HQ in Washington, D.C., to celebrate 50 years of learning and laughter. https://t.co/4JsFzOAizl pic.twitter.com/UMhdCs2YIL

The gang sang “What I Am,” “People In Your Neighborhood,” “The Sesame Street Theme (Sunny Days),” and more. The concert was a part of Sesame Street’s 50th-anniversary celebration, and even Elmo and Grover showed up to celebrate.

Boilen even got to sing with Grover!
The NPR team and their kiddos just couldn’t get enough of the Sesame Street gang.

Honestly, this is all just so pure, I can’t stand it.
I’m not crying. You’re crying.
