Nice 'Stache! Katy Perry Dresses as a Man on 'Ellen'

Sporting a thick mustache, the pop star served as a hilarious game show host for Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres is always making other peoples' dreams come true -- even when it's her own birthday. This time, the lucky lady was Katy Perry, who apparently has always wanted to be a game show host.

The lovable pop star made an appearance on the special birthday episode of Ellen (DeGeneres turns 55 on Jan. 26) and surprised the audience by dressing in drag -- including a thick mustache and a retro plaid suit. After cracking jokes left and right and doing an adorable dance, Perry announced the name of her exciting new game show: Grab Ellen's Bust.

Of course, we aren't talking about that bust. Perry placed a fan-made bust of DeGeneres' head on a table between two lucky contestants and informed them that whoever was the first to answer three questions correctly would be crowned the winner. Their prize? Not a kitchenette set, but instead a trip to Australia. One contestant nearly collapsed and the other was crying after the news was announced.

Perry was a wonderful host (seriously, can someone get her a game show?) but the real star of this show was the winner who nearly fainted when she won the Australia trip. The runner-up didn't go home empty handed either, as she was gifted $1,000. In fact, everyone in the audience went home with a $250 gift card.

That's the best part about DeGeneres, if you didn't already know: Even when she's the one celebrating, everyone's a winner.
