had to wait a week to reveal my big news because I didn’t want to upstage anyone, but here it is:
I did of course borrow this from my namesister Ellen DeGeneres, and it was, as always, brilliant!
Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a press release:
“We are thrilled to have Ellen DeGeneres host the Oscars. As a longtime friend, we had always hoped to find a project for us to do together and nothing could be more exciting than teaming up to do the Oscars. There are few stars today who have Ellen’s gift for comedy, with her great warmth and humanity. She is beloved everywhere and we expect that the audience at the Dolby Theatre, and in homes around the globe, will be as excited by this news as we are.”
It’s not every day that we have a Norwegian visiting Ellen DeGeneres. The one-man band and YouTube sensation came all the way from Norway to perform his song “C’mon Talk” on the show. You’ll be singing it for days and wondering how he did it for even longer. Watch here!
I also love how the interview went, looks like he had a great time. And why wouldn’t he?
