What a blast from the past it was to hear from Ellen today!
Annelie and I first met Ellen when she was taking a lunch break during the recording of her role in Finding Nemo. We had just failed our auditions for Nemo and the flock of seagulls respectively, so decided it best to focus on our dance troupe Jazz in your Face; Ellen spotted us in the car-park and was impressed by our impromptu performance.
Having only been witness to half of Jazz in your Face’s dance majesty, Ellen kindly invited us to perform on her then-upcoming talk show. The routine lead to a record breaking number of complaints for inappropriate behaviour and thousands of dollars in fines for Ellen.
What says sorry we cost you so much money and nearly ruined your reputation as a talk-show host…and risked you being thrown off air in your first season?
