Friday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” features a very special, very high-profile musical act.
Mumford & Sons takes the stage for a performance.
The band, which is making its inaugural “Ellen” performance, performs “I Will Wait” on the broadcast.
In a teaser for the episode, the official “Ellen” website referred to the performance as a nice early birthday present for Ellen, who considers Mumford & Sons one of her favorite bands.
Friday’s “Ellen” also features Dax Shepard and Nicole Richie.
It will air this afternoon; check local listings for the specific broadcast time in your market.
For now, you can watch a video of the “I Will Wait” performance. You can also check out a web-exclusive performance of “Only Love.”
