So this is what happens when Miley Cyrus takes over for Ellen (hint: It was awesome)

You might realize that something is missing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today… Ellen.

Sadly, Ellen felt a little sick, and enlisted someone else to take over the show. Miley Cyrus topped the list of contenders, and accepted the gig without any hesitation. Of course, she knew that the switch-up would take people by surprise, so she made sure to tell everyone what was happening the second she took the stage.

"Hey, everybody. Thank you. I am Ellen DeGeneres," Cyrus jokes. "Right. OK, obviously, I'm not Ellen. I am Miley Cyrus. How's it going everybody? Listen now, I know all of you came to see Ellen, so I'm gonna do my best to make you very happy."

She also admitted that Ellen left some pretty big shoes to fill.

"I'll admit I'm a little bit nervous because I've never hosted a show with my clothes on before, so this is so weird," Cyrus said.

"...Don't worry you guys, Ellen will be fine, but she just isn't feeling well, so she's asked me to fill in and of course, I said yes for my girl Ellen."

That’s true friendship!

As expected, Cyrus nailed the role. Here’s a clip where she interviews Frozen star Idina Menzel.

And, here’s a segment Cyrus did on random acts of kindness.

Once again, Cyrus proved that beyond the funny outfits and signature “sticking out the tongue” move, she truly is multi-talented with an amazing personality. While we hope Ellen feels better soon, we wouldn’t mind seeing Miley Cyrus host more shows in the future!
