Cameron Diaz Beats Me Game + 7-Year-Old Piano Prodigy Elias Phoenix


Ellen TV: Cameron Diaz “Beats Me, That’s A Humdinger”

Ellen DeGeneres and Cameron Diaz played “Beats Me, That’s a Humdinger” with three lucky audience members.

Cameron had to listen to a song on headphones. She wasn’t allowed to sing the lyrics, she could only hum or sing the beat, to try to get the contestants to guess which song she was listening to.


The first song was Katy Perry “Firework” and the second was Bruno Mars “Locked Out of Heaven.” Next was Kelly Clarkson “Since U Been Gone” and Cameron had to hum it “really hard.” Cameron then sang la la la to “Royals” by Lorde.
