STAR POWER Cheering for Ellen in her TV studio SEEING TV SHOWS LIVE WHY ELLEN NEEDS YOU Seriously funny Ellen DeGeneres sheds some light on why her show may be the best one to attend on the planet. WHY DO YOU LOVE A LIVE AUDIENCE? They bring such a positive energy, and I try to give it back to them. It's also important that they each buy a souvenir from the Ellen shop-I can't express that enough. WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR SHOW? I'm not just entertaining people, I also get to help people in need, and I love it when they get excited. I once gave a woman named Lisa Jarmon a new house-if you 30 | VISITCALIFORNIA.COM listen closely on a quiet summer's night you can still hear her screaming. DO SOME AUDIENCE MEMBERS TRY TO GET "NOTICED"? DOES IT WORK? Before the show everyone comes on stage and dances. I watch them from my dressing room, and there's two ways they can get noticed: If they're very, very good, or if they're very, very bad. DOES THE AUDIENCE GET TO INTERACT WITH GUESTS? A lot of times they get to play games with our guests. They're always so excited, especially when they get to be on my team because I always win.
