Ellen: Marques Scott YouTube Dance Video
“This is incredible,” Ellen said. “Over 5 million people have watched this next video.”
She shared a video of a Marques Scott dancing outside to Butch Clancy‘s dubstep remix of Foster The People‘s song “Pumped Up Kicks.” It was a really amazing dance. His body seemed to move seamlessly to the song. His limbs moved beautifully to the strange peaks and valleys of the intense dubstep groove.

“Well you know me–I love dancing,” Ellen said. “And he’s here today from Atlanta, Georgia. Please welcome, Marques Scott!”
Marques came out onstage and totally killed it. His live performance was just as good, if not better, than the YouTube video, except that it was much shorter.
Ellen: Stuff Your Cups Breast Cancer
“All month long we’re teaming up with Michael’s in the fight against breast cancer,” Ellen said.
To help raise money for the Susan G. Komen “Race for the Cure,” Ellen invited audience member, Julie Gilmer, onstage to play the game, “Stuff Your Cups.” The game involved a glass case with money on the floor. The contestant steps into the glass case and fans blow the money up at her while she tries to grab as much of it as she can.

“There’s $2,500 in there and Michael’s will match it for Susan G. Komen ‘Race for the Cure,'” Ellen said.
Ellen‘s assistant brought out an enormous pink bra and Julie said, “It’s kind of small.”
Ellen laughed and said she didn’t have to use the bra if she didn’t want to.
When Julie stepped into the glass box, the money was blown all around. She grabbed huge handfuls of it and stuffed them down her shirt.
When the game was over, Julie stepped out of the glass case looking as though she were pregnant, because she had stuffed so much money down her shirt.
“It’s hard to say how much you have,” Ellen said. “What we’ll do is just give you the full $2,500.”
Ellen stressed again that twice that much would be donated to Susan G. Komen.
“We’ll match that,” she said. “$5,000.”
