Happy Halloween from The View!

In honor of the upcoming spooky celebration, co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines and Ana Navarro paid homage to their favorite classic musicals with over-the-top costumes, dubbing Friday's episode The Viewsical.

The costumes were revealed during the talk show's introduction, and up first was Navarro. The political strategist was inspired by the 1996 musical Evita as she transformed into the film's lead Eva Perón.

Wearing a sleek bun, red lipstick, and a floral-adorned champagne-colored dress, Navarro was the spitting image of Perón, who was played by Madonna. Making the transformation even more believable, Navarro, 49, delivered a balcony performance of "Don't Cry for Me Argentina."

Next up, Hostin went glam as Deena Jones from Dreamgirls. Channeling her inner Beyoncé, who starred as the fictional character, Hostin, 53, wore a retro wig and a mermaid gown. Using her hands, swaying her hips, and smiling widely, Hostin perfectly captured the essence of Beyoncé's beloved character.

Then came Haines, 44, who swang into action as Satine from Moulin Rouge. Paying homage to Nicole Kidman's sultry character, Haines wore a sparkly flapper dress, satin gloves, and a jeweled black top hat.

Behar, 79, kept things spooky by transforming into Magenta from the 1975 musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show, donning a curly red wig and maid costume.

Lastly came Goldberg, 65, who dressed up as the scary and very hungry Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors. She and singer Jeremy Jordan serenaded each other as the longtime View co-host continuously yelled, "Feed me!"

The View airs weekdays (11 a.m. ET) on ABC.
