The talk show host — who Tweeted Thursday that the “biggest star in the world surprised me on the show” — indeed got quite the cameo, in the form of YouTube sensation-turned-2010’s biggest breakout star, Justin Bieber.

DeGeneres began the impromptu bit reading a letter from a viewer named Marissa who was upset her TiVo taping device didn’t work the day he’d previously appeared on the program. 

At that point, DeGeneres said, “Hey Justin!” and the 16-year-old Baby, Baby singer — who was hiding behind the couch — emerged to a raucous ovation from the studio audience.

The Canadian teen idol Bieber said he’d hoped Marissa’s TiVo was working properly for her. 

Then, Ellen unleashed another surprise: R&B star Usher (who signed Bieber to his label last year). The three exchanged a few pleasantries — with DeGeneres calling Bieber a super talent — before Usher and Bieber thrilled the audience by cutting a few steps on Ellen’s hardwood set.
The episode of Ellen featuring Justin and Usher will air on Thursday, August 5.
