If you ran a TV show and your usual host was off sick, who would you call to fill in for them? The Ellen Show chose someone guaranteed to be a bloody great laugh – Miley Cyrus.
Her debut gig hosting Ellen airs tonight (September 29) in the US, and a sneak preview of it shows she hasn’t let the producers down. “I know all of you came to see Ellen [De Generes],” she told the studio audience, all on their feet applauding her. “So I’m going to do my best to make you very happy.”
Her tactics? Do her best impression of the show’s usual star – “I’m dressed like her, I smell like her, just before I came out here I actually kissed a girl” – and taking the piss out of herself. “I’m pretty nervous because I’ve never hosted a show with my clothes on before,” she said, before adding she’d given Ellen some molly to make her feel better. Then, it’s down to the serious business of showing cat videos.
