Kerry Washington And Jimmy Fallon Turn The Singing Whisper Challenge Into Charades

Whatever it takes to get it right.

Actress Kerry Washington was the latest Tonight Show guest to take on Jimmy Fallon's Singing Whisper Challenge, and she was determined to get every clue right — no matter which side of the headphones she was on.

If you've never seen the game before, it involves one player singing the lyrics to a popular song while the other player wears headphones and tries to read their lips. In this case, Washington and Fallon had to resort to some rather creative methods to get the songs across. The game even turned into charades at various points.

When Washington is challenged to sing the lyric "It's like rain on your wedding day" from Alanis Morissette's "Ironic," for example, she imitates falling rain and points to her wedding ring. It takes the host a few very wrong guesses, but he finally figures it out.

After that, the pair struggles their way through "We Will Rock You" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," but they persevere, and somehow the challenge ends up being a success. It will inspire you to be even more dedicated on your next game night.
