Ellen DeGeneres has already proven she is a woman of many talents.

She can host a talk show and win Emmys, she can star in a sitcom and win Emmys, and she can make an entire country love her just by being herself.

But can she rap?

DeGeneres proved that she can when she joined guest Rebel Wilson this week for perform Salt-N-Pepa’s Shoop on her daytime show.

Wilson, star of the new comedy Pitch Perfect, told DeGeneres: ‘I had a dream that I just rapped with you and the audience just went crazy.’

The audience did go crazy as the two took the stage to perform an obviously rehearsed – but still wildly enjoyable – number.
