Ellen DeGeneres wouldn’t let a day to go on waste and tapped The Voice 2016 coach Miley Cyrus to host her show on her behalf.
In a video promoting the Ellen DeGeneres Show episode, Cyrus was seen dancing on the set before she introduced herself to the studio audience as someone ready to be like DeGeneres. The 23-year-old pop star is sporting a blue jeans jacket on top of a white long-sleeved shirt and black pants. To complete Ellen’s classic wardrobe, the Wrecking Ball singer paired her clothes with white sneakers and stripped socks.
Cyrus then told the audience she did all she can to fill DeGeneres’ shoes in hosting the show. “I know all of you came to see Ellen, so I’m gonna do my best to make you very happy. I’m dressed like her, I smell like her, just before I came out here I actually kissed a girl so, uh, thank you,” Cyrus said.
Miley Cyrus admitted that she is quite nervous filling in for DeGeneres since never hosted a show with clothes on. It can be recalled that during Cyrus’ last hosting gig, she showed up partially naked at the 2015 Video Music Awards.

DeGeneres earlier wrote on Twitter that she is sick and Cyrus will be stepping in for her. The singer clearly did a very good job.
This is just the second time that the Emmy-winning host called in sick. In January 2014, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Ellie Kemper took over at The Ellen DeGeneres Show when DeGeneres had flu.
Miley Cyrus’ episode in the Ellen DeGeneres Show is set to air on Friday (Sept 30) in the US.
Miley Cyrus currently serves as a judge/coach on The Voice 2016 on NBC. She is also busy in Woody Allen’s upcoming Crisis in Six Scenes series on Amazon.
Is Cyrus leaving The Voice 2016 for Ellen’s show? Definitely not. Clearly she is enjoying her time in the singing competition show.
