SYTYCD Alumni Celebrate Ellen DeGeneres’ Birthday

SYTYCD Alumni Surprise Ellen DeGeneres

Talk Show Host and So You Think You Can Dance fan Ellen DeGeneres celebrated her birthday last week, and Late Night Host Jimmy Kimmel surprised her with a performance from seven So You Think You Can Dance alumni! Season 8’s Top 2 Melanie Moore and Sasha Mallory, Season 7’s Alex Wong, All-Stars and Season 4 finalists tWitch Boss and Comfort Fedoke, and All-Stars and Season 2 finalists Allison Holker and Ivan Koumaev sprung from seats in The Ellen Show audience to surprise her with a performance to LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It.”

Ellen is such a huge SYTYCD fan that she served as a guest judge during Season 5 and she appeared in the audience during Season 8. It was appropriate that Alex and tWitch performed on Ellen’s birthday, because Ellen filled in for an injured Alex Wong during the Season 7 finale, dancing Hip Hop to “Outta Your Mind” with tWitch! View a photo of Ellen’s Season 7 performance.

Watch the SYTYCDers on ELLEN.

You still have two more chances to be on So You Think You Can Dance’s ninth season. Audition Thursday, Feb. 23 in Salt Lake City or Friday, March 2 in Los Angeles.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE SYTYCD!! And I am a HUGE fan of Ellen! Have been for years. I used to watch her show and was sad that it ended the way it did. But I am SUPER DUPER STOKED that she is back and better than ever! This was such a great show and I was on the end of my seat watching the dancers. Jimmy Kimmel is a nut :) I can’t wait for Season 9…the previous seasons have been amazing, I can’t imagine anyone being as great as they all are. I am sure it will still be awesome. Hopefully they will introduce another different genre of dance. Lots of love and a Happy Birthday to Ellen!
