The Olympic gold medallists — and subjects of intense "are they dating or not? AND WHY AREN'T THEY?? COME ON!! JUST ADMIT YOU'RE IN LOVE!" public scrutiny — are going to be on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." The show's executive producer Ed Glavin made the announcement Monday on Twitter, and the internet immediately exploded with glee, general merriment, and memes.
Attention Canadian @TheEllenShow fans! With thanks to @Jen_Birmingham & her friend @andylassner, your Canadian skating icons @tessavirtue & @ScottMoir will be on the show airing next Tues., 3/20 #virtuemoir https://t.co/CZBya3QF9a— Ed Glavin (@EdGlavin) March 12, 2018
Have a feeling all #VirtueMoir fans will gladly and freely work as writers, researchers and PAs for that Ellen episode on the 20th. 🤣 And just to make it even more special, could you get @Lesdoggg on that day too, to represent all of us who ship them? pic.twitter.com/Q0Wo1hvCiK— Andie P (@iamandiep) March 12, 2018

The pair will appear on the March 20th show, Glavin said on Twitter. Set your PVRs, Canada!
Virtue, who has proven her social media savvy time and time again, tweeted that she and Moir are already working on their entrance choreography. "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" is known for highlighting it's guests' dance moves as they make their way to the stage. Actress Jessica Biel, for instance, recently pulled off the famous choreography from "Dirty Dancing" — complete with air lift.
"Our choreographers think we are currently creating show numbers for our upcoming tours ... really, we are just training for our ("The Ellen DeGeneres Show") entrance," Virtue wrote on Monday.
Just tell me what music you want. I'm ready.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) March 13, 2018
"Just tell me what music you want. I'm ready," DeGeneres quipped back.
Virtue and Moir fans from around the world took to Twitter to express their excitement, proving yet again it's not just Canada who has a major crush on the duo.
hi AMERICAN fan here who is obsessed with them WHO TOLD YOU ONLY CANADIANS WERE THIS CRAZY— YNMD Seeks Platonic Canadian Business Partner (@yoganerdmd) March 12, 2018
These news also just made this German fan very happy! 😜🎉 pic.twitter.com/N0O6UuIWJP— doris. 💫 (@outlanderswift) March 12, 2018
But mostly, people were excited for DeGeneres to have a crack at getting the truth about their relationship (or lack thereof ... we guess) out of them.
@HeidiHoque WAIT WHAT?! You know Ellen is going to ask the hard hitting questions.— Ally-X (@13allypaige) March 13, 2018
So Excited!!! If anyone can get it out of them, it's Ellen 🙌— Heidi (@HeidiHoque) March 13, 2018
no ellen is allowed to ask that— YNMD Seeks Platonic Canadian Business Partner (@yoganerdmd) March 12, 2018
but ellen is the ONLY one allowed to ask that
because she's ellen
(ok maybe also Oprah)
Between this, their star-studded appearance at a Toronto Maple Leafs game, Virtue's new gig with Nivea Canada, and Moir's Heritage Minute moment at the women's hockey gold medal game, it's pretty safe to say these two now top maple syrup, and maybe even Drake, as our most popular Canadian-made product.
