If you’ve ever wondered what Julie Chen would look like in Madonna’s bullet-bra bustier, or maybe Aisha Tyler in Beyonce’s iconic, single-sleeved black leotard (and if you haven’t, well, you probably are now) this will be a very Happy Halloween, indeed. In honor of the costume-centric holiday, the CBS afternoon gabfest The Talk will morph into The Sing, as the hosts transform themselves into their favorite pop stars and throw down in a lip sync battle hosted by Joey Fatone.

The special episode airs Friday, Oct. 30 at 2pm ET and 1pm CT and PT on the CBS Television Network. And here’s what you can expect to see:


 Julie Chen gets a mega ‘material girl’ makeover into the best-selling female artist of all time and multi-Grammy Award-winner Madonna, performing to her 1989 classic hit song, “Express Yourself.”

Sara Gilbert transforms into “The Queen of the Power Ballad” Celine Dion, with a dramatic performance of the Canadian songstress’ first U.S. chart topper, “The Power of Love,” from 1993.

Sharon Osbourne takes on Australian singer-songwriter Sia, donning her trademark blonde bob wig, while interpretive dancers perform to her 2014 Grammy Award-nominated pop ballad, “Chandelier.”

• Aisha Tyler could convince any man to ‘Put a Ring On It’ when she emulates Grammy’s most nominated female artist ever, Beyoncé, performing her 2008 No. 1 hit “Single Ladies,” that was certified quadruple-platinum.

• Sheryl Underwood gives a knock out performance as “The Godfather of Soul” James Brown, performing to his 1985 chart-topping R&B single, “Living in America,” which was also the theme song from “Rocky IV.”
