Update: The September 12 and 13 “Ellen DeGeneres Show” lineups are now official, and Celine Dion and Usher are indeed performing.
Per the official Ellen website, Dion will appear for an interview and a musical number on the 9/12 episode. Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke are also confirmed for that broadcast.
The 9/13 episode will feature Michelle Obama and Stephen Curry in addition to Usher’s performance.
Tentative listings say Chance The Rapper (9/15) and Carrie Underwood (9/16) will also be performing next week. Headline Planet will provide an update if/when those appearances are officially announced.
Listings issued to television providers reveal upcoming “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” performers.
Per the listings, Celine Dion is scheduled to perform on the September 12 episode. Usher will play the September 13 “Ellen,” while Chance The Rapper (with Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz) and Carrie Underwood are respectively scheduled for September 15 and 16.
As these performances have not yet been announced on the show’s official website, they should be considered tentative.
One particular cause for hesitation is the fact that the “Ellen” site recently mentioned that Stephen Curry and Michelle Obama would appear on the September 12 episode, but the latest TV guide listings have them advertised for September 13.
For those curious, the tentative TV listings are as follows:
9/12: Ryan Lochte & Cheryl Burke, the man whose surprise reunion with his Gabonese mother went viral, a performance by Celine Dion
9/13: Michelle Obama co-hosts; Stephen Curry, a performance by Usher
9/14: Hillary Clinton, Katie Ledecky, Shamayim Harris
9/15: Jimmy Kimmel, Scott Eastwood, a performance by Chance The Rapper featuring Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz
