Heidi Klum Dressed Up as Maddie Ziegler for Halloween

We're guessing you or someone from your dance posse has dressed up/is currently dressed up as Sia-mode Maddie Ziegler. It's one of the preferred last-minute Halloween costumes for dancers, after all (nude leo, blonde wig, crazy face, go!)—including, last year, American Ballet Theatre principal Isabella Boylston. But we have to admit that we never expected noted Halloween enthusiast Heidi Klum, known for her super-duper maximalist costumes, to channel Maddie Z.

Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres, another Halloween devotee, to make that happen. For today's episode of "The Ellen Show," the dance-loving DeGeneres had Klum play the Maddie to her Sia. And they didn't stop at costumes: The two also did their own rendition of Sia's "Chandelier" video, complete with Klum's, um, interpretation of Ryan Heffington's choreography.

Is Heidi Klum secretly a great dancer? Nah. But the pair managed our expectations by confessing to rehearsing for a grand total of seven minutes—and the deliberately goofy result is actually kind of fun, in the way that everything Ellen touches is fun.

Happy Halloween, friends! ?
