It’s Halloween and that means that talk show hosts all across the television landscape are dressing up in fun costumes Thursday (Oct. 31). Ellen DeGeneres busted out (ahem) a Nicki Minaj costume, starting off her Halloween show with:

“Happy Halloween! Welcome to my Halloween Extravaganza! Let me start by saying, my eyes are up here. This year I decided to go as something really scary — half naked. Of course, I’m Nicki Minaj. Nicki was on the show a few weeks ago. Her shirt was not. … I’ve got the whole look down. I even have the same shoes on. I think I do. I can’t see my feet, but I think I do,” says Ellen.

“I don’t normally wear things that are this sexy. But when you’re dressed as Nicky Minaj, you have to. So here are my boom booms and back here is my Super Bass.”

Below, Ellen welcomes “Biggest Loser” host and “Days of Our Lives” star Alison Sweeney, who is dressed as Christina Aguilera on “The Voice.”

Fun times. Happy Halloween!
