Sean Hayes Dances To Kick Off 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' Guest Host Gig

The “Will & Grace” star jokingly introduced himself as the “brown-haired, more feminine Ellen.”

Sean Hayes kicked off a guest-hosting stint on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” this week in the most Sean Hayes way possible.  

On Wednesday’s episode, the “Will & Grace” star cheekily introduced himself as the “brown-haired, more feminine Ellen,” before offering a number of eyebrow-raising daffy explanations for DeGeneres’ absence. 

He then launched into an elaborate Broadway-style dance number set to Meghan Trainor’s “No Excuses” that included a host of colorful performers and brief voguing. 

Hayes’ first guest was “Ocean’s 8” star Olivia Munn, who shared some behind-the-scenes scoop from DeGeneres’ star-studded 60th birthday party earlier this year. 

Melissa McCarthy challenged Jennifer Lopez to a dance-off, and Melissa won,” Munn said. She added that comedian Tig Notaro entertained with an impromptu performance of an Adele classic with a little help from Pink.
