*Ever since Jessica Biel did the “Dirty Dancing” leap into her interview on “Ellen,” the host has been challenging every guest to try and top her.
Today, Taye Diggs may have done it.
The 46-year-old actor suited up in a spandex number showing off the chest and busted his 80s moves with two background dancers. The trio then break into a choreographed dance to Olivia Newton-John’s 1981 song, “Let’s Get Physical.”
“Fantastic,” DeGeneres tells him after the dance is over. “Everyone’s trying to top that Jessica Biel entrance and I think maybe you did.”
After Diggs’ performance, DeGeneres asks if he needs a robe. Fellow guest Jane Fonda comes to his aid.
DeGeneres tells Diggs his performance was like a Jane Fonda workout video and Diggs reveals that the actress and activist was big in his house growing up, and that his mom had her infamous VHS tapes.
Was his entrance better than Jessica Biel’s?
