One of the highlights of Halloween is always the episode of NBC's "Today" that focuses on the holiday. While just about every daytime talk show host in the world is in some costume or another today, the "Today" crowd really kicks it up a notch every year. This morning (October 29) was a bit of a step down from previous years, but still created some great Halloween moments for next year's memory montage.
In the past, the cast has found a common thread among their costumes (most notable was the year they all dressed up as characters from "Star Wars"), though this year's was a little more scattered. Ann Curry dressed as eternally lost pilot Amelia Earhart, while Meredith Vieira appeared as Lady Gaga (who also performed an impressive dance sequence). Perhaps both of those ladies are strong and singular? It's possible that the whole theme could have been "female empowerment."
But rather than appear as Oprah in drag, Al Roker elected to show up on the show dressed as Superman (in a clever twist at the beginning, it was suggested that Matt Lauer — who was not present for any of this — was actually dressed as Roker who was in turn dressed as Superman). And then Natalie Morales showed up as Justin Bieber (in a costume that was perhaps a little too accurate). Ever thought you'd see Bieber and Superman together? You do now!
Will Ferrell and Tina Fey also appeared on the show in costume (as their characters in the upcoming animated film "Megamind") and the show also held a costume contest that featured audience members dressed as the Flintstones and Jambi from "Pee-Wee's Playhouse").
