Ellen DeGeneres Dances up a Storm in ‘Oscars’ Trailer: Watch


If the Oscars will be anything like this trailer, we’ll be in for a really fun time!

The show’s host Ellen DeGeneres busts a move in the new video, set to Fitz and the Tantrums’ “The Walker” along with 250 tuxedo-clad male and female dancers as they boogie down a street in a backlot at Warner Bros. Studios.

At the end of the video — which was directed by the man responsible for The Heat and Bridesmaids, Paul Feig — the screen reads “Here We Go!”

“Paul Feig has a reputation of being hilarious and nice and smart,” says Ellen. “I thought this is a great idea and I loved it. And I want to be in Bridesmaids 2, so 2+2: great Oscars promo, Bridesmaids 2, cha-ching.”

The 86th Academy Awards, which is March 2, will be the second time Ellen has hosted. She previously pulled off the feat in 2007 … and received glowing reviews.

Are you as excited as we are to watch the Oscars this year?
