Ellen TV: Audience Members Win Grammys Tickets
Ellen DeGeneres shared that she had two tickets to the Grammys and she wanted to give two of her audience members a chance to win the tickets by playing a trivia game called Grab My Grammy.
The two women were sisters from Placenta Orange County, but it sounded a bit funny when Ellen asked them where they were from, and they simply answered “Placenta.” It even threw Ellen a little off guard!
Ellen first asked them what color you get when you mix red and blue. Tracie answered correctly by saying purple! Ellen then said, “Daft Punk is nominated for their record ‘Get Lucky.’ Name something lucky.” Tracie once again grabbed the Grammy first and said “a leprechaun.”
Ellen: Trivia For Grammy Tickets
Next, Ellen said “Katy Perry is nominated for her song ‘Roar.’ What animal goes like this? Baaah.” Heather grabbed it this time and said “a sheep.”
Ellen then asked the two women to name the four suits in a deck of cards. Tracie grabbed the Grammy first and nailed that answer! Ellen felt bad for Heather, having only one right answer, so she moved the Grammy doll more towards her to try to give her an advantage.
Ellen asked the women to name a way to accessorize a suit. Heather grabbed the Grammy doll and answered “a tie.”
Time was up, and Ellen said it was very close, but Tracie won. Not surprisingly though, Ellen gave them both a ticket to the Grammys so they could go together!

She said she loves her job, but realized she had worked so much, and her daughter just turned 5 and her son is 9, so she wants to be with them more.
Ellen asked her what will happen to her character, and Alison said she would love for there to be a happy ending, but at the same time thinks maybe her character, Sammy deserves a very twisted, Breaking Bad ending.
