Ellen DeGeneres welcomed singer Christina Aguilera on her eponymous talk show on May 16, where the two partook in a game of Heads Up.
“It’s female singers and you are going to sing,” explained DeGeneres before the competition began. “I am going to try to guess who it is that the singer is.”
“Me and Blake [Shelton] were playing this the other day in our trailer with a few drinks. I don’t know how to do it sober,” she admitted before DeGeneres held up the names of female artists for Aguilera.
First up on the docket is late singer, Whitney Houston. The 35-year-old singer easily sings the lyrics to “I Will Always Love You.” She later sings lyrics to Madonna’s “Like a Virgin”; Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”; Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl.”
However, when it comes to Rihanna’s number one record, “Work,” Aguilera finds difficulty in coming up with the lyrics.
“Work, work, work, work, work, work,” she sings while adding her own set of lyrics, “I really don’t know the words, words, words, words, words, words.”
From there, the “Fighter” singer cannot come up with many lyrics of songs for the remaining female singers.
“Umm…born this way,”Aguilera blurts out, allowing Degeneres to easily guess Lady Gaga.
She draws a complete blank when Barbra Streisand name appears next on the list.
“Oh my gosh!” she exclaims as she fidgets with her hair with only a few seconds left on the clock. “Amazing—um, known for stage fright—on the stage.”
“Barbra Streisand,” answers DeGeneres as Aguilera breathes a sigh of relief after the game.
Christina Aguilera appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” last year where she impersonated Britney Spears. The two, along with Justin Timberlake, appeared on “The Mickey Mouse Club” as children in the early 90s where they performed musical numbers and comedy skits.
Aguilera is currently a judge on NBC’s “The Voice.”
