The video starts with DeGeneres touching up her outfit before bursting through the doors and lip-synching to the indie bands lyrics about being true to oneself, which is quite appropriate for the comedian who pokes fun of herself and celebrities on The Ellen DeGeneres Show! As the talk show host continues walking down the street, while dancing and lip synching, more and more super energetic dancers appear from around all corners and begin dancing with the host.

DeGeneres is hosting this year's 86th Oscar Academy Awards, making it this comedians second shot at it. The actress said herself how eager she is by saying, "I am so excited to be hosting the Oscars for the second time. You know what they say — the third time's the charm."

But alongside DeGeneres, Oscar producers Craig Zaden and Neil Meron are also excited for the comedian to be hosting the Academy Awards as well. "We are thrilled to have Ellen DeGeneres host the Oscars," Zeron and Meron said back in August when it was announced that DeGeneres would be the 86th host. "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 Theater, and in homes around the globe, will be as excited by this news as we are."

DeGeneres hosted the 79th Academy Awards in 2007, where she received great reviews and kept the humor for the big night light-hearted, funny and charming. The comedian has been called "wonderfully spontaneous," a "consummate entertainer," "equally beloved by her peers in the industry, movie fans and television viewers," "talented," and someone who "knows how to entertain a worldwide audience."

It sounds like DeGeneres is going to be the perfect host for the Academy Awards once again. Be sure to tune in on Sunday, March 2, 2014 on ABC.
