Ellen DeGeneres Ellen DeGeneres

While last night's So You Think You Can Dance finale was all about awarding Lauren with the grand prize, the grand surprise was Ellen DeGeneres joining All-Star tWitch for a recreation of his epic hip-hop routine with Alex Wong from earlier this season.

Girl crushed it!

Of course, Ellen has shown us she can get down on her daytime talk show, but who knew she had those kind of moves? Decked out in the same gear Alex sported during the set, and armed with a few tweaks (or would that be tWeaks?) that played to her comic side, DeGeneres did more than just work that floor and hold her own against arguably the show's best dancer. She also gave an encouraging shout-out to kids considering a life on stage and displayed incredible class in light of that whole Idol ouster.

In fact, if Nigel Lythgoe were smart, he'd be asking Ellen to consider adding a seat at this judges' table to her dance card.

What did you think of Ellen's routine? And would you watch her as a SYTYCD judge?
