"Oh, How I Miss My X" is a Sesame Street song sung by Patti LaBelle at a nightclub, singing about missing her letter X, with flashbacks illustrating their good times and relationship. After the song is over, the letter X appears from the audience, and she is reunited once again. Patti gives the letter X a kiss, and everyone applauds.

Luis, Susan, Gordon, and Maria appear as LaBelle's audience, with Bob as the pianist. Kevin Clash performs the letter X.[1]

Years later in 2019, LaBelle's X inexplicably appeared beside her for the "Sing" finale of Sesame Street's 50th Anniversary Celebration.
