Name That Song Challenge with Taylor Swift

October 14, 2019

-The Roots are gonna
start playing a song one instrument at a time.
Taylor and I can buzz in and guess as soon
as we know the song. But if you guess wrong, the other person
gets a chance to steal. -Ugh. Treacherous.
-You can play — -Crazy.
-You can play along at home. Roots, let’s hear the first
song, whenever you’re ready. Oh, man. ♪♪ ♪♪ [ Beep ] -“Oops!…I Did It Again,”
Britney Spears? -No! [ Buzzer ] -Oh, wait, wait, wait! ♪♪ “Baby One More Time”
by Britney Spears! Ohh! -Oh, my gosh! Come on! Ugh! What did I say?
What did I say? I said “Oops”?
-That’s shameful. -I thought that like —
-It’s those chords. -[ Vocalizing ] -It’s them max Martin chords.
-Max Martin chords. Gosh darn it! I’m so mad.
All right. Ugh. Of course, Taylor’s
gonna kill me at this. All right.
Let’s hear the next song. ♪♪ ♪♪ -Ohh!
[ Beeping ] -♪ Da-na, na-na ♪ -I know it. I know it. -[ Mumbling lyrics ] “Pour Some Sugar On Me,”
Def Leppard! -Ohh! ♪♪ Sorry, sorry. I don’t even know
the words. I’m like — ♪ Hit me like a bomb, then
then come on na-na-na ♪ ♪ Na-na-na-na-na,
with a red iPhone ♪ A red iPhone? -It’s actually radar phone.
-It’s radar phone? I thought it was a red iPhone. -They were super ahead
of their time. -“Trust me, in the future,
everyone’s gonna have a red…” -This song came out in the ’80s,
and they know about iPhones. -Yeah, man, they’re prescient.
All right, here we go. Let’s hear the next song. ♪♪ ♪♪ [ Beep ] -It’s Nelly,
it’s Nelly, it’s Nelly. It’s “Hot in Herre.” Ha!
-What? [ Cheers and applause ] -What?
-This is my favorite song. ♪♪ -Ohh! How did you get that?
Oh, my gosh. -Yes.
-All right. [ Cheers and applause ] Gosh. You are proving
that you’re a genius. Come on. How would you
guess that from that? -Just, like, middle school.
It imprints on you. -“Hot in Herre.” “Hot in Herre.”
-Mm-hmm. -Here we go.
Let’s hear the next one. ♪♪ I’d love it
if you guessed it now. ♪♪ [ Beep ] “Bad Guy,” Billie Eilish. [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ ♪♪ Whew. All right.
Coming back. Coming back, man. Whoo!
-Okay. -There’s a little bit —
That’s a little bit of a lot. -Too much. Yeah. Why don’t you just say,
“You need to calm down”? Just say it. All right. Come on. I set you up.
I set you up. [ Cheers and applause ] -I’ve had to learn
to say different versions of common phrases like
“Shake it off.” -Yeah, you can’t
say that anymore? -“You need to calm down.” Like, I’ve had to figure out how to not to say puns of
my own songs in conversation. I’ve gotten sort of good at it. -Let’s hear the next song.
Here we go. ♪♪ ♪♪ -“Kiss Me,”
Sixpence None The Richer. -Oh, my God! Yes! ♪♪ You even got the band? ♪♪ ♪ Kiss me ♪ Sixpence None The Richer.
You even got the band. -That was the first song
I learned to play on guitar. Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ] -Me too. All right.
Let’s hear the next song. -Okay. ♪♪ ♪♪ [ Beep ] -Is it “No Scrubs”? [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ -What the heck?
How did you guess that? -It’s the chords. -Whoa!
-It’s the chords. -How did you get that?
-It’s just chords in a song. -Oh, my gosh.
It’s the chords in the song. -I’m really too excited.
I’m flushed and — -I know. This is a fun game.
I really have met my match. -Really fun.
-This is unbelievable. All right.
It’s time for the final song. This is worth 10,000 points. -Towards what?
-It’s anyone’s game. Whoever wins this,
wins the whole game. -Okay. -Roots, take it away,
whenever you’re ready. ♪♪ ♪♪ [ Beep ] -“Shake It Off”? [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ [ Laughs ] Yeah! ♪♪ I’m sorry. No, no, no. Come on. Oh, I love it! That’s my favorite thing that ever happened
on the whole show ever. Taylor Swift, everybody.

    Jimmy is such a fake personality

  • Reply Bulsa October 12, 2019 at 1:54 am

    Jimmy you needed to apologize. I’m never gonna watch your show again. the reason she missed that last question is because she was trying to remember the chords to play and the words to play both of other two songs. you didn’t give her a chance to recover. Taylor was emotionally distracted and you knew it. Jerk!

    it's actually expected that she won't guess her own song, as she wasn't expecting it! element of surprise.. she was expecting someone elses cords that she forgot her own, she was played

  • Reply Trisha October 14, 2019 at 5:03 am

    I get sad because Taylor gets so much hate for no reason like why do people hate her so much she's talented, pretty, kind she also gets discredited a lot when she helps right a song or when she helps with the vocals I'm just guessing that everyone hates women artist like have you noticed that none of the male artist get hate I'm not saying they should but I'm just saying people hate on other people for no apparent reason I guess they're just bored and have no life so they need to hate on someone like everyone plz stop were already facing massive events focus on that instead of sitting on your little computer and comment on someone's tweet and say "You're not even talented get out of here!" Like I'm just saying

    I know I got a little off topic there but you get what I'm trying to say
