Hi Ellen, My dog has a hidden talent! He rides on my back while I cycle.

Would you like to watch his video? - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjoRNHGoDOM&feature=youtu.be

I hope you and your team get a grin out of watching this. The Ellen Show makes me happy. I use your Youtube clips to change my mood all of the time. Thanks for everything!

Love from The Sunshine Coast, Australia!

Hey Ellen,
I heard about your contest just a little late. I recently moved back from Germany to finish my degree while my husband is in afghanistan. Here is my video.


I hope you like it.

I tried to upload my hidden talent for writing hip hop grooves...but, apparently i was being hacked so if you like the youtube video here...i will be able to write a comparable song in 15 minutes on the show...including the beat and entire groove based upon my formula...It took me many years to develop this talent which now comes naturally, and it my work has been sampled by many well-known artists. Call me 818-731-7531http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJXmjsVNQkU

I am trying to upload a video for the Here's my talent. I made my first utube video - changed my story and would like enter but even with web address I never get confirmation that it sends. I tried last night with only a picture and it said thanks for entering but with the video it will not send? I need some help and advice what should I do? Thank you for your help.
My utube video is http://youtu.be/garFJvBAXRE and here is my updated story. My talent is making Magic watching the Ellen Show. Ellen and the show give us the viewer's magic everyday. The beauty of magic and Ellen reach out to grasp all who are witness for it teases the imagination in a compelling yet delightful fashion. An art combining grace, movement, emotion, skill, and confidence precisely interwoven. I was downsized from my job and then in an accident where our stopped vehicle was hit by a semi going full speed. As I was healing I watched the Ellen show everyday. Ellen shows us we all have magic inside of us and that all of us should not only watch the magic but live it everyday. Ellen taught me Magic is believing in yourself and if you do that you can make anything happen. That is what I tried to show with my video making the flowers, smiles and money appear. I hurt and would get depressed but stirring Ellen in made my day clearer and brighter. Watching Ellen was magic for me; not just what we see as an audience, but what we experience and better yet what we feel. That is what my video shows magic at its best. Thank you for watching my talent and for your great show.

My husband has an unusual talent but we don't know how to send it to you. He can roll both his eyes around in his eye sockets. We are not very computer savy but are trying to get some of the Grandchildren to help us. Where and how do we send it to you. We both love your show.

Hi Ellen,
My talent is I can curl my tongue and I can also turn my tongue over either left to right or right to left. I can also whistle with my fingers. If you need a video let me know where or how to send it.

Take a look at my client Megan King. She is extremely talented and she won the WNFR contest to sing the National Anthem.

Please go to u tube and see little Rhema Marvame sing the National Anthem. When great singer say it to hard and to long watch this little girl belt it out. She dedicates her singing to her mom who died of cancer at the age of 36. Watch her hands and just the great feeling she puts into it. This is the way it's supposed to be sang.

I'm a dancer, not professional (yet) but hoping one day to persue as a career! I actually recently moved to California to start auditioning for professional companies, I'm from Santa Fe, New Mexico I can't persue dance as a career there so I left. Most dancers start technique training at a young age, I started when I was 18, ( I'm 24 now) I dance a variety of style like hip-hop, jazz, modern, ballet both classical and contemporary, a little bit of tap, belly, and ballroom styles. I also choreograph, but haven't really been given the opportunity to perform my own pieces, except for once this last fall I performed a duet piece I choreographed for a benefit concert October 2012. Most my pieces are more of away to express myself. Thank you for reading!
