Ellen DeGeneres and a sea of tuxes strut their stuff in Oscar promos

Posted on

Ellen’s reporting for Oscar hosting duties and it looks like she’s already got her tux ready to go.

In the first promos for the 86th Academy Awards, talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres joins 250 tuxedo-clad dancers in a big lip sync to Fitz & The Tantrum’s new single, “The Walker.” Bridesmaids and The Heat director (and recently admitted Academy member) Paul Feig helmed the flashmob-esque production, choreographed by freestyle dancer Stephen “tWitch” Boss.

How’d Ellen do mastering the cowboy move? Check out the trailer and a behind-the-scenes look at how they pulled off the shoot below:
