But the really mind-blowing part of the night came from will.i.am's own performance.

Nine Network

He took the stage with Cody Wise to perform "It's My Birthday", and at first things seemed... fine.

Nine Network

Until the dude playing the keyboard looked suspiciously like will.i.am in a bandanna.

Nine Network

And then... another Cody appeared?

Nine Network

And woah wait that is definitely will.i.am playing the drums.

Nine Network

And also IN THE AUDIENCE?!

Nine Network

Wait whaaaaat?

Nine Network

What is this madness?!

Nine Network

Oh nothing much just will.i.am taking the ultimate selfie.

Nine Network

And falling down and laughing at himself.

Nine Network

And flipping himself off.

Nine Network

It was just like...

Nine Network

What?

Nine Network

The other judges were pretty into it.

But everyone watching along at home was very confused, afraid, and basically questioning their entire existence.

You can melt your brain by watching the whole thing here:

BuzzFeed has reached out to Channel Nine for an explanation of this trickery, but they're yet to reveal their secrets.
