Dan + Shay stopped by The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo! this week to perform the classic Sesame Street tune, “I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon.”

The Grammy-winning duo delivered an effortless performance of the iconic children’s song as Elmo watched along from side stage.

“Though I’d like to look down at the earth from above/ I would miss all the places and people I love/ So although I might like it for one afternoon/ I don’t wanna live on the moon,” Dan + Shay harmonized on the chorus.
