In the shock twist, judges Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg and Nicole Scherzinger were left gobsmacked by the reveal.

In the highly-anticipated moment of Snail's identity being revealed, staff could be seen removing the hat which sat on the Snail's back.

However, when it appeared there was no one in the costume, everyone was confused.

That was until they spotted Kermit's green hands poking out of the costume before he completely revealed himself.

The judges couldn't stay on their seats when Kermit was revealed, with Ken Jeong saying he was the "most famous guest" on the show.

None of the judges had guessed Snail's identity correctly, with names like Seth MacFarlane, Jay Leno and Billy Crystal bouncing around during the episode.

Speaking to Variety, Kermit said: "After years of being your average everyday talking frog, I thought it would be fun to be someone else.

"The chance to become a snail—with my own built-in mobile home—was too good to pass up… I didn’t last on the show very long. But I loved every minute of it."
