Temporarily leaving behind his "Modern Family" to rendezvous with the Muppets, TY BURRELL is here! The Emmy-winning star of one of the most popular sitcoms ever recently hit the big screen with his film, "Muppets Most Wanted." Playing an international inspector in the new comedy, Ty toted around a very large Muppet named Sam the Eagle in a very tiny car, and the result is nothing short of hilarious. The great thing about having Ty here is that he's just as funny in real life as he is playing quirky characters! Ellen can't wait to see him again!
LEA MICHELE is here to perform "On My Way" from her CD, "Louder." The actress, singer and "Glee" star recently released her debut solo album, and it has been exploding on airwaves and charts. Thanks to Lea's pulsating melodies and devoted fans, the album reached #1 in 11 countries around the world! It has been a huge and crazy year for the talented beauty, and with every move she makes, the reverberations go higher. She'll tell Ellen the latest!
Then, a magnate in new media, ARIANNA HUFFINGTON stops by the show! Over the last decade, Arianna has redefined the way the world absorbs information with her popular website, The Huffington Post. No story goes untold under the publisher's watchful eye, be it a crazy cat video or tale from the trenches of war. As leader of the first online-only news daily to win a Pulitzer Prize, Arianna turned her career as a political analyst and author into something beyond the scope of traditional media. Fittingly, her book, "Thrive," examines the idea of success, and she'll share those tips with Ellen. Arianna empowers everyone with the ability to express their opinions -- it's time to hear hers!
This Thursday, Ellen is listening to powerful voices!
