ELLEN DEGENERES: MOST UNLIKELY PAIRING

Why she won: This was DeGeneres as we'd never seen her before – but her Nicki Minaj homage was as unexpected as it was perfect.
A revealing top, leather pants and a long blond wig – oh my! DeGeneres put her usual hosting gear aside to channel the rapper on her talk show's 2013 Halloween episode, joking, "Here are my boom booms, and here's my super bass." And while we don't see DeGeneres recycling the look on a non-holiday, Minaj loved the spoof too, posting on Instagram, "I didn't know Ellen could get any sexier."
