Ellen DeGeneres is celebrating her 53rd birthday in style on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Wednesday (Jan. 26). The show is turned into one giant surprise party as several celebs stop by for a visit and for the first time in eight years on the air, Ellen has no idea who is coming.

Pink joins her onstage for the monologue and a birthday serenade, then Julia Roberts stops by with a gift. Colin Farrell brings the cake and finally Jaden Smith wishes Ellen a happy birthday.

One Eskimo, one of Ellen’s favorite bands, performs “Given Up” and there are gifts given out to the entire audience. But that is not all! There is a performance of Double Dream Hands led by the original choreographer John Jacobson. Delightful. Be sure to tune in to Wednesday’s “Ellen” show for all the fun birthday shenanigans.

UPDATE: We’ve added some more video below.

Happy Birthday, Ellen!
