    Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, & Evan Rachel Wood Play ‘What Does the Cast of ‘Frozen’ Knows-zen?’

    And we’re back with Evan Rachel Wood and Idina Menzel. We are going to play a new game we’re calling, what does the cast of Frozen Know-zen? [MUSIC PLAYING] [APPLAUSE] This is like hot potato, but the balloon is going to keep filling up until it bursts. Oh, God. Our executive producer, Kevin, is going to ask trivia questions. And whoever has the balloon has to answer, and pass it as quickly as possible. If it bursts, you are out and you have to go stand over there. You can’t pass the balloon until you get the question right. Ready? That’s right. Everybody ready? [CLEARING THROAT] Let’s do this. All…

    Gadzooks! Josh Gad Shows Off Fun Winter Items from The Ellen Shop

    Speaking of things you can buy, it’s time for my brand new segment. I thought of it myself. It’s called Gadzooks! Look at this! Gadzooks! Look at this! [LAUGHTER] It’s so dumb. [LAUGHTER] It’s called Gadzooks– [BUZZER] –because my name is Josh Gad. Get it? You’ll get it. I’m going to show you some stuff from the Ellen Shop that’ll make you say, Gadzooks!

    Idina Menzel and Josh Gad Play ‘Speak Out’

    We are back with Adele Dazeem. [LAUGHTER] And we’re going to play Ellen’s game Speak Out, OK? You’re going to put this in your mouth. And I’m going to have to try and guess what it is you’re saying. Can we just say that when you scared me my feet went up like that? I will live for that. I’m going to ask for that to be played at my funeral one day. Do I go– All right, are we ready? Let’s– do you know how to do this? Uh-uh. You just need to put it (SINGING) into the unknown.

    Tracee Ellis Ross and John Legend Take a Lie Detector Test

    We’re back with Tracee Ellis Ross. Now I just took a lie detector test. I thought we’d play it here on Ellen. OK. What do you think, Tracee? I think I’m a little scared. Are you going to tell the truth, is the question. Well. Yes. So here’s how it works. We’re going to ask each other a simple yes or no question. OK. And then the machine is going to tell us if we’re lying or not. But we don’t have anything attached to us, is it going to be true? The machine will know. OK. OK. We take our seats. I’ll go first. OK. Oh, this is going…

    Chrissy Teigen Scares Guest Host John Legend

    Welcome back. [CHEERING] I am still, believe it or not the sexiest man alive. [CHEERING] Is it me, or did I even get sexier during the break? I don’t know. [LAUGHTER] I don’t know. Anyway, I want to thank the audience for singing “All of Me.” I wrote that song about my wife, Chrissy. And she was in the music video. We actually filmed it in Italy the week we got married. And here’s an interesting fact though. The record company originally wanted someone else to be my love interest in the video. And I have a clip. You guys want to see the clip? Here it is. [MUSIC –…

    Audience Members Imperfectly Sing John Legend’s ‘All of Me’

    I love to serenade people. But sometimes it’s nice to be serenaded, too, you know? So before the show we passed around the microphone. And we asked the audience to sing my song All of Me. You didn’t know we were going to use this for the show, did you? They got some of the words right. Take a look. [MUSIC – JOHN LEGEND, “ALL OF ME”] (SINGING) What would I do without your sweet mouth? (SINGING) I can’t jop seeing it, just ringing me da air to you. (SINGING) My head’s underwater and I’m breathing fire. (SINGING) Oh, dizzy, and I’m out of my mind. (SINGING) ‘Cause all of…

    Lena Waithe Reveals She’s Now a Wife

    So welcome, welcome. Did you see Tracee backstage? I did. Of course I did. I heard you guys go way back. We go way back. She knew me when I was an assistant on Girlfriends. On Girlfriends. Yes. That was the sitcom that introduced Tracee to a lot of us. Yes. And what were you doing as the assistant there? I was just running my mouth and happy to be there. I used to walk her dog. You walked her dog. Yes, her dog, Ladybug, who is no longer with us, RIP. What kind of dog? I don’t know exactly. I don’t know. I don’t want to mess up the–…

    John Legend Serenades a Fan with a Love Song

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. As you can see, I am not Ellen DeGeneres. But no worries. Guess who is here as your guest host this afternoon? People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive! [CHEERING] Yes, that’s me! [CHEERING] Now– stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. Now, that’s a new title for me. I’m more commonly known as Chrissy Teigen’s husband. [CHEERING] Everywhere I go on tour, every appearance I make, I prepare for the look of disappointment when people find out that Chrissy is working or she’s at home with the kids and she’s not with me. It’s kind of like your look when you found out Ellen wasn’t hosting today.…
