LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ellen DeGeneres is bringing variety back to TV with the help of Kabuki Expert and the Flag Man.

They're among the performers in DeGeneres' fourth variety special for TBS, "Ellen's Somewhat Special Special," which was taped Wednesday at the Chicago Theatre. It will air later this month.

The show features Lady Antebellum, Australian magician James Galea, the Catwalk Acrobats and Nick Cannon. They join Japan's Kabuki Expert, creators of the Matrix Ping Pong video seen online, and Dominic Lacasse, an acrobat known as the Flag Man.

"Ellen's Somewhat Special Special" is set to air 9 p.m. EDT Sunday, June 27, on TBS.
