On Friday, Ellen tweeted she'd be doing something special in Seattle on Monday.
Latest:Ellen thanked UW on Tuesday!
I want to thank @UW for coming to my Twitter challenge! Y'all had so much energy, and that was before the coffee.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) April 8, 2014
Ellen Degeneres wasn't here in person, but she sent her reporter to rally a huge crowd at the University of Washington on a beautiful Monday afternoon. The crowd was just as energetic as Ellen had anticipated.
The UW appearance will air Tuesday afternoon on Ellen's show.
If you're in Seattle, get to Rainier Vista at @UW now. We have a huge crowd. It's gonna be awesome. You're gonna be on my show today.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) April 7, 2014
So it sounds like costumes are encouraged. Does someone have a Space Needle costume handy?
Things are getting started at 2:30 p.m.!
Hey Seattle, I want you dressed up as Seattle's Best! Whatever that means to you. But if I don't see a Space Needle, I'll be disappointed.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) April 7, 2014

Apparently Ellen isn't actually in Seattle for whatever promotion or contest she's doing. She said she will see Seattle "live from her studio" though.
