Ellen DeGeneres stars in first trailer for the Oscars 2014

Ellen DeGeneres has pulled on her dancing shoes to star in the funky first trailer for the Oscars 2014.

Directed by Paul Feig ( Bridesmaids , The Heat ), the trailer's a one-shot, one-minute-long promo for the event in which DeGeneres lip-synchs to Fitz & The Tantrums' 'The Walker'.

She's also accompanied by a vast cast of back-up dancers in order to promote her second time hosting the glitzy awards event.
