Dance party! Ellen DeGeneres has some really famous pals. The comedian celebrated her self-titled talk show's 2,000th episode — which airs on Thursday, Nov. 12 — with surprise guests Jennifer Aniston and Justin Timberlake.
The Friends alum, 46, and Timberlake, 34, were the first and second guests, respectively, to appear on DeGeneres' show back in 2003. In honor of the milestone, Aniston brought a "Welcome" mat, and the "Mirrors" singer briefly pulled out some of his dance moves.
"You're two of my favorite people," DeGeneres, 57, said.
Timberlake quipped: "Yeah, but, like, if you had to pick one, we all know who it would be. Right?"
For DeGeneres, the episode was both lighthearted and emotional. She teared up during her monologue and when Peter Roth, the President and CCO of Warner Bros. Television Group, named her Stage 1 set as the "Ellen" stage.
"We’ve had 8,302 guests and 1,145 bands and together they’ve gone through four million barrels of whiskey, I’ll tell ya that," DeGeneres told the crowd. "There have been, in 2,000 shows, 859,200 people in my audience. You’re my favorite 400 though. Don’t tell anybody. [I] don’t want to make the others feel bad."
