Ellen DeGeneres can't dance -- legally, that is, say record labels in lawsuit


Stella may have gotten her groove back, but Ellen DeGeneres may lose hers -- if record labels win a lawsuit filed Wednesday against her popular talk show. The allegation: that the producers of The Ellen DeGeneres Show played more than 1,000 songs without permission.

Many of the songs were played during a segment of Ellen DeGeneres when the host dances onstage and then works her way into the audience. The segment, which employs a DJ to play the music, has become a signature of the program.
