Ellen DeGeneres Is so Excited to Host the Oscars, She's Dancing in the Street

The TV star shows off her moves in this promo for the Academy Awards

Looks like someone is ready for the Academy Awards!

Dancing in a dapper suit with a sharp bow tie and laced sneakers, Ellen DeGeneres shows us her two-step as she sings in the street -- on the lot of Warner Bros. studio, which is a nice nod to the biggest night in film. Check it out!

As DeGeneres gets her groove on to "The Walker" by Fitz & the Tantrums, more and more suited men and women begin to join her as her back-up dancers -- 250 of them, to be exact! Paul Feig, the director of Bridesmaids, helmed the Oscars trailer, and So You Think You Can Dance's Stephen "tWitch" Boss choreographed it.

"Paul Feig has a reputation of being hilarious and nice and smart," DeGeneres said. "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."

Feig had similar praise for his star.

"Ellen's so great. She's of the people. And I wanted the message to be basically that everyone gets to go to the Oscars this year," he said.

The Academy Awards airs March 2 on ABC.
