The big 6-0! Ellen DeGeneres celebrated a milestone birthday on Friday with the help of some celebrity pals.
The talk show host was treated to gifts and tributes by Justin Timberlake, Kristen Bell, and Dax Shepard.
Timberlake video conferenced in from his Super Bowl rehearsals. After DeGeneres asked JT who his musical guests would be during the highly anticipated show, he replied, “You’re welcome to come out with me if you want.”
“You know, I’m really great at lyrics so I can sing along with you,” DeGeneres offered.
“You’re very great at dancing too and we all know that,” Timberlake added.
The “Filthy” singer then serenaded DeGeneres – with the help of his band The Tennessee Kids – in a soulful rendition of “Happy Birthday” and gave her a bouquet of pink peonies flowers.
And the gifts didn’t stop there. Actor Dax Shepard recorded a hilarious birthday song for DeGeneres, dressing up in a white tux and playing the piano for the occasion.
“I know that Portia’s your girl, but if you were single and straight, I’d rock your world!” Shepard sang. “You make 60 so sexy, the way you move, the way you groove, got me so crazy.”
Later in the show, Shepard’s wife, Kristen Bell, appeared as a guest, joking of the song, “That was very special. No, he’s never done anything that romantic [for me].”
Bell’s gift to DeGeneres was a bit more sincere as she presented her with a T-shirt that read, “It took 60 years to look this good.”
“But I don’t think it’s pointing to your face. I think it’s pointing to your heart,” Bell told DeGeneres. “It’s the truth, because you give so much joy, and you have had 60 years of wisdom in how to share that joy to the greatest degree possible, and we’re all just very grateful.”
The host then noted, “I feel like as you get older you just get so much more comfortable in your skin and you feel better about yourself and about life.”
