The Cry Me A River singer had his ebullient personality on display for the giveaway episode filmed before the November 21 incident in New Orleans with Alisha, 30.

Ellen opened the show by sharing a video about the Bender family of Troy, Ohio whose world was turned upside down after patriarch Stan was diagnosed in 2016 with ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Stan and wife Dee Dee learned of his diagnosis in early December 2016 and didn't tell their three children so they could all relish a last Christmas together without worry.

'It's kind of like we lose a little bit of him each day. His hugs aren't as tight anymore, but he can still hug,' Dee Dee said.
