Derek and Julianne Hough Perform on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show"

We all know Ellen DeGeneres is a major dance fan—she's definitely done her part to help bring dancers to national prominence by inviting them to perform on her show. I'm not arguing that an appearance by super-sibs Derek and Julianne Hough counts as dancer outreach (they certainly don't need any help with notoriety), but it's always good to see dance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show"—no matter how low or high profile the performers are.

On Monday we told you that the Hough's MOVE Live Tour is back. Their appearance on "Ellen" was to drum up excitement for the tour—and we're definitely excited.

With their usual flair (and by flair I mean fringed crop tops and a drumline), the Hough siblings Latin-style-hip-hop-jazz-funk fusioned their way through a typically high-energy performance. Was it too much for daytime TV? Or was it just en-Hough?
