On today's show, the Oscars host explained to her audience, "You can't know if you're good at something until you try it." The funny lady then goes on to do her best Letterman-type monologue, opening with "Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. I haven't had that much trouble coming out since 1997. Please have a seat. Thank you."
