‘Today’ show anchors dress as country legends for Halloween

When it comes to dressing up, the Today show is pretty legendary.

The group of anchors presented their Halloween costumes at the Rockefeller Plaza during a "Legends Night" ceremony, made to look like the Grand Ole Opry. Hosted by Reba McEntire (the real one), the anchors came out dressed as country music's finest.

Carson Daly dressed up as Achy Breaky Heart singer Billy Ray Cyrus, who joined him on stage.

Al Roker came out as Willie Nelson, and Megyn Kelly channeled Shania Twain's I Feel Like A Woman.

And you can't have a Billy Ray in the house without a Miley. Kathie Lee Gifford performed Party in the USA in Miley Cyrus' floral Canadian tuxedo. Hoda Kotb pulled off a convincing Blake Shelton.

But if there was a costume contest, the winners would easily be Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer for dressing up as iconic versions of Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton and performing Islands in the Stream.
