The first preview of Ellen DeGeneres as host of 2014’s Academy Awards has been released, showing the Emmy-winning daytime talk show host dancing in the street in a tuxedo and sneakers.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show host, who shows off her dance moves daily on her show, dances along with the help of others to "The Walker" by Fitz & the Tantrums.
E! Online reports that the dancing sequence takes place on the Warner Bros. studio lot. It was directed by Paul Feig and choreographed by Stephen "tWitch" Boss from So You Think You Can Dance.
In a behind-the-scenes clip, DeGeneres says "I had the best time making this.I love Paul, I love tWitch, I love Fitz and I like most of the Tantrums."
She also joked about wanting to be in a Bridesmaids sequel, which Feig directed.
"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 funny woman said.
The Oscars will air on ABC on March 2.
