Lizzo brought the Force for Halloween weekend.

The three-time Grammy Award winner, 33, dressed as the beloved Mandalorian character Grogu (a.k.a. Baby Yoda) on Friday for Spotify's Ghost Town Halloween Party in West Hollywood, where she graced the audience with a surprise performance of her breakout hit "Truth Hurts."

She later posted a TikTok of herself getting into makeup for the costume, before posting the final product to Instagram. "CEO OF 🥺 FOR HALLOWEEN… GROGU LOVE MACAROONIS BUT CRAZY LAST NIGHT GOT," Lizzo captioned the photos.

Lizzo also greeted fans on the streets of Los Angeles while in costume, as well as posting some photos of her interpretation of Grogu acting wild during a night on the town.

"It was such an epic night," Skinner and Barone said in a statement to PEOPLE. "We have always been Obsessed with Halloween, but being able to throw this party with Spotify was a damn honor. All our guests were amazing, but when Lizzo surprised the party at the end we were gobsmacked."

Also in attendance were Troye Sivan and Joshua Bassett, as well as Ted Lasso stars Brett Goldstein and Phil Dunster. We're Here star Bob the Drag Queen spun some tracks, as partygoers enjoyed a corn maze, a mechanical bull and a fortune teller.

Lizzo's surprise performance came after she announced a "new era" in her music career, dropping her single "Rumors" in August, a collaboration with Cardi B. The track marked Lizzo's first single in two years.
