On the show today: She's a great actress and she's now on Dancing with the Stars, Oscar-winner Marlee Matlin and her partner Fabian Sanchez are here. [Ellen raises her voice as crowd cheers loudly] [♪ Get on your feet, get up, and take some action...♪] You'd think my next guest would be at a disadvantage, competing in the new season of Dancing with the Stars. She can't hear the music, yet look at this. [ ♪...Get up, and make it happen ♪] [♪ Get on your feet, get up and take some action ♪] [crowd cheers] That was unbelievable, and I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it. What you did out there was so inspiring. Please welcome Marlee Matlin and her dance partner Fabian Sanchez. [crowd cheering] [♪ So let's dance, the last dance, the last dance, ♪] [♪ Let's dance, the last dance ♪] [♪ Let's dance, the last dance, tonight ♪] [Faint voices of standard greeting under large sound of music and applause] [crowd still cheering and clapping to the beat] [ ♪...for romance, tonight♪] [♪ oh, oh, I need you, to guide, beside me...♪] It's hot, that's how hot it is - It's hot. [Fabian] Thank you. Alright, so, this is incredible. It was your first week last week, How did that feel? I'm so glad it's over with, I'm so glad, but you know what? I woke up this morning, and I was smiling, and then I thought, "oh, wait a minute - it's not one night. It keeps on going" - it keeps on going! [crowd laughs] Now this is your first season, and how did you feel when you found out your partner was deaf? Did you think that this'll be easy, or how we gonna do this? Well, first I was excited, because I have seen her movies before, you know, And then after the excitement kinda wore off, I was like she's not going to be able to hear the music, I started really thinking, and then I thought, (MM) Oh my god! Then I thought, she's just another woman that I am going to be teaching, you know, and stuff like that, but it's just been incredible, incredible. I'm just another broad to Fabion. Just another chick! Just another chick, baby. But now how do you, and you say it's not a disadvantage, It's and advantage, and how is that? Well I have to say, I mean I think I found out last night, because I was looking at all the other women who were competing against me, and they're all wonderful women, and, I asked them, I said, Are you nervous? And one of them said yes, yes I'm very nervous. And I said Why? I wanted to know all the secrets. She said, "Because I have to hear this music, and I have to count this beat and I have to listen to the music when I'm out there." Well, you know that's not my problem! [crowd laughs] Was this something you looked as a goal, like a challenge? Had you thought about this before? Well, you know, a goal? To be on Dancing with the Stars? It was like, you dance every day when you come to work. You dance every day. And you do a great job. And perhaps we can teach you some Mambo steps or something like that, but, it's a challenge for me. When you have to do something in front of 25 million people like this, I thought, you know what? Why not? It's great. Being judged on national television, having my children be able to watch the show, It's stressful, yet at the same time it's a great show. and fun to be on. It's a fun show to be on. Well you're doing great. You're doing an amazing job. So, will you dance for us? Absolutely.
