Kevin Clash's Elmo makes an appearance during Michael Buble's Christmas special

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. [The performance is] so warm and sweet. It really is a beautiful moment. I think people will enjoy it.”

This won’t be the last we see of Clash’s Elmo. In addition to the current season of Sesame Street (which airs through the spring), much of next season is already taped, and will still air as planned.

A rep for Clash did not respond to EW’s request for comment.

Michael Buble joins Blake Shelton's 'Voice' team

NBC says The Voice is teaming a crooner and a country singer for the show’s new season.

The network said Monday that Michael Bublé will serve as adviser to coach Blake Shelton’s team of contestants when the singing contest returns in September.

Bublé, who described himself as a “big Blake fan,” said he’s having a terrific time working with Shelton and his singers. Bublé started taping his appearances on The Voice Monday in Los Angeles.

NBC has yet to announce advisers for the show’s three other coaches, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green and Adam Levine.

Kelly Clarkson, Jewel and Baby Face were among last season’s advisers, guiding contestants in their choice of songs. The Voice is back for its third season Sept. 10.
