Christina Aguilera helped Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest kick off their Halloween show Wednesday by participating in a sketch that was a takeoff on her hit “Genie In a Bottle,” and the classic ‘60s sitcom I Dream of Jeannie.
In the sketch, Christina picks up a bottle and discovers Kelly and Ryan inside, dressed as Jeannie and Major Nelson from the TV show.
“Christina Aguilera? Is that you? We’re saved!” says Kelly.
“What are you guys doing in there?” Christina asks.
“Oh, it’s a long story. We got caught up in some network reboot scam,” says Ryan. “There’s no time for explanation. We gotta get outta here and get ready for the Halloween show!”
“What do you want me to do?” Christina asks.
“Get us out of this dusty, 2,000-year-old bottle, it’s gross in here!” replies Kelly. “There’s no bathroom!” They begin to sing the chorus from Aguilera's smash hit "Genie in a Bottle," which provokes the pop star to rub the lamp and free the duo.
But then Kelly sneezes due to all the dust in the bottle and accidentally transforms Ryan into a female genie – complete with a long blonde ponytail, a pink bra top, a bare midriff and harem pants.
