Olivia Rodrigo Sings Miley Cyrus’ ‘Flowers’ in ‘Tonight Show’ Game – Billboard
Written by GRB on 10/12/2023
Olivia Rodrigo, Saturday night’s SNL musical guest, stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for an interview and a round of the “Singing Whisper Challenge” while she was at 30 Rock.
The game goes something like this: one player has a card with a pre-selected song to sing, and the other puts on headphones to block out the singing. That player has to guess the song, turning it into a lip-reading challenge.
“I can buy myself flowers,” Rodrigo casually sang to Fallon. She had to mouth that lyric a couple times before the Tonight Show host figured it out. “Love that. Love Miley!” Fallon said when he got it right.
Next up was the chorus of Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’ “Señorita,” which Rodrigo was able to guess before Fallon even finished the clue.
“I think I just love that song,” the “Vampire” singer said.
The final card had a very obvious pick, yet it took the pair longer to work it out. Some charades had to come into play for Fallon to pick up on the hit single Rodrigo was trying to convey.
