Jessica Biel Recreated 'Dirty Dancing' And Put Every Other 'Ellen' Entrance To Shame

She had the time of her life.

Jessica Biel soared onto The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and put every other celebrity entrance to shame — including her own.

After the host introduced Biel, she was surprised to find the actress dancing down the steps of the audience. The soundtrack of "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" from Dirty Dancing might have clued viewers in to what was about to go down (or rather, up). 


DeGeneres' DJ tWitch met Biel at the foot of the stairs and proceeded to dance with her. If you've ever seen Dirty Dancing, you probably know what happened next. Biel got into position, tWitch threw off his hat, and the pair recreated the iconic lift originally executed on the big screen by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

The audience, and DeGeneres herself, went crazy for the move, which they pulled off flawlessly. As Biel explained after sitting down for the interview, she was actually trying to one-up herself after the show's producers told her she held the record for longest dance entrance on the show.

The host then pointed out that Biel's husband Justin Timberlake is a good dancer, and wondered if they've ever tried that move together. "Yes, I make him do stuff like that all the time, and, like, his back goes out," Biel said. "It's a disaster."

In case you were considering it, maybe don't try this one at home.
