The object of the game was for Meredith Vieira to sing a song that only she could hear through her headphones and Jennifer Lopez to guess it. Then Hoda sang a song with her headphones on. The person with the most songs guessed by Jennifer Lopez won.
Before they began, everyone sang “I Luh Ya Papi” with the trademark dance move of fluffing their hair. The first song Meredith sang was “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor. Meredith Vieira was not a good singer, but Jennifer Loepez guessed it. Hoda sang “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls, which Jennifer Lopez didn’t know at all, but an audience member clued her in and she guessed it.
Meredith Vieira sang “Waiting For Tonight” by Jennifer Lopez, but it took Jennifer Lopez a while to guess it because Meredith Vieira is so bad at singing. The last song was Hoda singing “Brave” by Sara Barielles which Jennifer Lopez didn’t get, but Meredith said Hoda won anyway.
