Warning: Below contains spoilers for the Oct. 25 episode of The Masked Singer.

Yer a wizard, Jenny McCarthy.

After all, makeup magic allowed the Masked Singer judge to transform into Albus Dumbledore for the Fox singing competition's Harry Potter week episode on Oct. 25. Donning a prosthetic nose, aging makeup, a gray wig, a large beard and bushy eyebrows, McCarthy looked unrecognizable—and at least 50 years older than her actual self—as the famous Hogwarts headmaster.

Meanwhile, fellow judge Ken Jeong stepped into the shoes of potions teacher Severus Snape—complete with shoulder-length hair and jet black wizard robes—while Nicole Scherzinger was dressed as a Gryffindor student in a red and gold uniform.

"Hello, beautiful woman," McCarthy greeted Scherzinger in a deep voice in a behind-the-scenes video posted on Instagram. "Have you learned anything today?"

In another clip, the two lip synced to famous lines from the movie franchise before breaking down into dance backstage.

Ranking The Masked Singer Reveals From Least to Most Exciting

"Went for a more natural look this week on @maskedsingerfox," the 50-year-old joked of her faux facial hair in the caption. "What do you think?"

As for who went home? Unfortunately, Hawk received the least amount of owl mail, erm, votes with his performance of The Police's "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" and was sent packing back to the Muggle world.

The bird of prey ended up being Teen Wolf alum Tyler Posey, who was "flattered" that Scherzinger guessed he was Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong before the unmasking.

"I love performing," he told the judges, "and I just wanted to get a chance to do this."

However, the actor also noted that he was bummed that his chances of winning had gone poof.

"I'm also a little competitive, so I'm also a little hurt," he quipped. "But it's OK—the Hawk forgives."
