DeGeneres stars in Oscar promo

Knutsford Guardian: Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the Oscars for the second time Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the Oscars for the second time

Ellen DeGeneres has kicked off Oscar season by appearing in a promo for the awards ceremony.

The US talk show star is to host the film awards on March 2, which she previously did in 2007.

The promotional video for the event sees the star putting on a song and dance routine with around 250 other people.

Ellen is seen getting dressed in a tux before heading out onto the backlot of Warner Bros, while lip-syncing to Fitz And The Tantrums' song The Walker.

She is then joined by the other dancers, also wearing tuxes, and they all dance in the street.

At the end, the date of the Oscars appears with the words "Here we go".

The video was directed by Bridesmaids filmmaker Paul Feig.

It was announced earlier this year that Ellen, 55, would be hosting the Academy Awards again.

The comedienne - who is married to actress Portia de Rossi - said at the time: "I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say - the third time's the charm."
