Ellen DeGeneres is celebrating the 2,000th (!) episode of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ with some seriously special guests. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Timberlake? Yup, and that’s just the beginning. Watch a sneak peek!
Um, this is how you celebrate a milestone. Ellen DeGeneres, 57, is marking the 2,000th episode of her long running talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, with some of her seriously famous friends. In this preview for the episode, airing on Nov. 12, we see Ellen get surprised by two of her all-time favorite guests: her first guest ever, Jennifer Aniston, 46, and Justin Timberlake, 34. No, no, you’re the one tearing up!
“That’s right, congratulations to me, huh?” Ellen says, at the top of the milestone episode. “If someone had told me I was going to do 2,000 shows– first of all, I would have asked for a lot more money– I would’ve said you’re crazy,” she added.
But anyways, moving on to those surprise guests. Ellen had truly no idea which two of her friends would be showing up to take a seat on the couch, and when Jen walks out, it’s truly moving to see Ellen’s face light up with delight. “Do you know how hard it is to surprise this person?” Jen asks Ellen.
Anyways, it wasn’t enough that Ellen had her first ever guest, Jen, on the episode. No, she needed her second guest as well: JT, duh! “I think it’s time to bring sexy back,” Jen says, as the doors slide open and Justin walks onto the stage. Naturally, the screams are deafening.
“You’re two of my favorite people,” Ellen tells the duo. Uh, same Ellen. Same.
Are you excited for Ellen’s 2,000th show? Who has been your favorite guest over the years?
