As she’s often done in the past with other high-profile sporting events, Ellen DeGeneres enlisted shirtless dancers to predict a winner. It’s a tried and true method ;)
Four studs representing the Final Four strutted their stuff in the audience. The gent snatching the most dollar bills in their junk would win.
If based on DeGeneres’ audience, the winner of the NCAA Tournament would’ve been the Wisconsin Badgers. Sadly for them, they came up short and placed runner-up to the Duke Blue Devils on Monday night.
Personally, I would’ve made it rain with the Duke’s representative. WOOF!!!. All proceeds went to the animal rescue foundation, Start Rescue. Watch all the twerking and booty dropping below.
Throughout her career, Kelly Clarkson has been criticized about her weight. It’s more evident as of late as she’s been working hard promoting her latest album.
While the 32-year-old could lose a couple of pounds, as most of us including myself, I think people are too hard on her. The woman just had a baby in the past year. Not everyone can shake off the baby weight within a couple of weeks. Sure, Clarkson looks great when a bit slimmer, but if she’s happy that’s all that matters.
Watch Kelly open up to Ellen DeGeneres about her body shaming which dates as far back to her American Idol days. She also sings a duet the daytime talk show host. Check both vids out below.
It’s Madonna Week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The 56-year-old pop icon is on hand all week long to promote her new album, Rebel Heart, in stores now.
On today’s appearance, the “Living For Love” singer plays Never Have I Ever with newly-roasted Justin Bieber. For the most part, the questions are pretty PG and tame. The most salacious thing they admitted to is hooking up with siblings. Who hasn’t ;)
What I would give to play an actual game with these two with a few drinks consumed, naturally of course. The tea that would be spilled would be epic. Watch Ellen play with Madge and The Biebs below.
There’s been plenty of speculation regarding Jessie Smollett’s sexuality. Is he gay like the character he plays on Empire or just playing gay? The 31-year-old actor chose to set the record straight on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
He did, however, wait until backstage to reveal all, instead of addressing the topic during the main interview in front of the studio audience. Smollett reveals that “there’s never been a closet that I’ve been in. I don’t own a closet, I own a dresser.”
If that declaration isn’t clear enough, check out his ‘coming out’ below. He doesn’t state it in any definitive terms, but he does mention that he takes his mama to the Sound of Music sing-along every year. Enough said ;)
It was the dress that broke the internet. What started out as an innocent post on Tumblr immediately went viral with some people weighing in very passionately. I don’t know about you, but I only saw black and blue.
If you were curious to know the story behind the viral sensation, Ellen DeGeneres invited the folks involved on her show. It turns out, it was all about a wedding. The mother of the bride sent three photos of different dress options to her daughter. As you can imagine, confusion began when family members saw the dress differently.
Watch the video below to learn about #TheDress and find out what DeGeneres gifted them.
How do you try to beat the selfie that broke the Internet? I have no idea and neither does Neil Patrick Harris. Not even the woman who hosted last year’s extravaganza knows. Mind you, if Ellen DeGeneres did, I doubt she’d share it. Deep down, I’m sure she doesn’t want this year’s show to outshine hers ;)
The 41-year-old actor reveals his biggest fears about hosting the 87th Academy Awards to DeGeneres. The daytime host dishes she was extremely lucky that all the cards fell in place for that definitive moment at last year’s Oscars.
“Here’s my biggest concern,” Harris confesses to DeGeneres. “Your selfie shot [featuring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and plenty more A-listers] was the most spectacular, successful thing. It worked out so well. But it’s a horrible dark cloud above my head now. How do you try to beat the selfie that broke the Internet? I see that in my nightmares. It turned out to be a great thing … selfies in my brain, so I’m gonna try to do something better.”
That’s not the only obstacle NPH talks about preparing for Sunday night’s big event. Find out the others in the video below.
Lea Michele dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show for the third time on Thursday. In addition to promoting her debut single “Cannonball,” the 27-year-old opened up about dealing with Cory Monteith’s untimely death. She reveals how Kate Hudson, Ryan Murphy and her mom all helped her deal with her grief just days after her loss.
“She was so wonderful to basically give me her home to myself and my family,” Michele said Hudson. “It was so helpful to just, basically, have a safe place to process, and just have a minute to just breathe before getting back to my house with just has a lot of memories and stuff. So being some place else to just have a moment was really nice.”
On a lighter note, Michele performed her soon-to-be hit single live for the first time. The more I hear “Cannonball,” the more I get hooked. With that being said, I found it hard to separate Lea from her alter ego Rachel Berry during her performance. Am I alone in thinking this? Check out her number below along with her interview.
After a year off, The Sing-Off returns for a fourth season to NBC this Christmas. Season 3 winners Pentatonix have gradually become the singing competition’s Kelly Clarkson by being the most successful out of the bunch. Since winning two years ago, their debut EP debuted at No. 14 with a brand new one dropping this week. In addition, they’ve appeared in numerous YouTube videos which have gone viral.
One of their best is the epic “Evolution of Beyoncé” which chronicled the “Irreplaceable” singer’s discography all the way from her Destiny’s Child days to her “Grown Woman” era. Their a capella medley was genius. Apparently, Ellen Degeneres thought so too. She brought them on her show Monday to perform it for a live studio audience. Not surprisingly, it’s pitch perfect. Check it out below, along with the original and their interpretation of the evolution of music. That’s brilliant as well.
