    Ellen is the only reason I’m watching the Oscars this year. In fact, I haven’t watched a full telecast since her last stint in 2007.

  3. A says:

    I think I saw Ashton Kutcher and Rasheda Jones. Who else is in it?

  4. MariaD says:

    Oh darn, I wanted more! Great choreography by tWitch.

  5. Bobbi says:

    Very glad Ellen is back as host this year!

    I saw the thumbnail for the article, and I thought it was about HIMYM….it’s VERY reminiscent of Nothing Suits Me Like a Suit! Haha.

  7. Stormy says:

    Great video, love Ellen, but the song was kind of meh.

  8. Sarah says:

    Was kinda expecting the cast of HIMYM to dance-crash into view and take over with Nothing Suits Me Like a Suit. Maybe NPH will get to host in 2015 and they can make a commercial like that then.
