We've already seen Alicia Keys play Wheel of Musical Impressions on The Tonight Show, and on Thursday night, host Jimmy Fallon challenged the singer to another music-themed game — the Singing Whisper Challenge. Keys may have gotten a little carried away in her clue-giving.
The game works just like the regular Whisper Challenge, with one player wearing headphones while trying to read the other player's lips. The only difference is that, instead of phrases or movie quotes, the clues are song lyrics. Sometimes players go to interesting measures to communicate, like when Kerry Washington turned the game into charades.
Keys made a few charades-like gestures, but even more notable was the Voice coach's decision to break into full-on karaoke on one of the clues by singing an entire verse of the song. The clue was "It takes two to make a thing go right," from "It Takes Two" by Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock.
As Fallon struggled to guess, Keys pulled up her hood. "I wanna rock right now / I'm Rob Base and I came to get down," she rapped. "I'm not internationally known / But I'm known to rock the microphone." Unfortunately, singing more of the song didn't exactly help Fallon figure it out — although it made the game so much more fun.
