You also get to see the final routine AND Alex Wong’s delighted reaction.

Ellen took the place of Alex Wong who had injured his Achilles tendon a few weeks earlier, while practicing a Bollywood routine for the competition.

Ellen didn’t have Alex’s amazing ballet moves.  But she did bring her own “special’ something to the routine.

  1. I freaking love Ellen. She may have been a sucky judge, but she was great!!!

  2. I still feel this was stupid. They should have brought a dancer that could have really used the TV exposure. Ellen just wants to hog up everything that is popular so she can stay a float. Is she going to be a judge in this too? Stick to your day time, Ellen.

  3. That was so much fun!!! I got tears in my eyes esp. with how simply thrilled Alex was that Ellen took his spot. I personally think if it would have been a real dancer it would have been extremely hard for Alex to watch and comparisons would have been made. To me this was the right thing to do and the audience went crazy as we can see. This was pure entertainment. Thanks for posting mj!!!!

  4. Aw, I loved it, I thought it was a cute tribute to Alex (which I really think is how Ellen meant it and why she did it; she seems to really like him) and she did a great job. I know my whole family was really enjoying it :) Of course I love Ellen anyway so I guess I’m not completely unbiased…

  5. I can’t believe how good Ellen was. The crowd loved her and so did I.
    she’s multi talented and it was a nice tribute to Alex.

    For me, a little bit of Ellen goes a long way.

  7. I loved it, thought it was fun, and the best way to honor Alex. He obviously appreciated that she took the time to learn and perform it.

  8. Oh, that vid was awesome. She really worked it out, hard.

    We really all had a blast watching Ellen that night. It was like watching Michelle Kwan as she nailed “Tosca” in 2004 Nationals LP:

    Hear the crowd? That’s how loud we were. We cheered as Ellen nailed every single step & roared with joy (& laughter) ’till the end. It was very celebratory, so nothing was taken away from Alex. That performance of his with Twitch will always be remembered as one of the highlights from that season.

    The producers ASKED Ms. DeGeneres to do this as a favor and she also wanted to for Alex. There is absolutely nothing stupid about this! The majority loved her dancing, as I did. You must be in the minority.
