a Try Not to Sing Along Challenge. – Oh! I don’t know if I’m gonna
be good at this or not. It all depends on the songs.
– No! No! Can I dance, though?
– (FBE) No. – (groans) Come on!
– But I love music! And I love to sing!
I don’t sing well, but I don’t care. – (FBE) But today every song featured
was a hit in the early 2000s. – Ooh! Okay. It’s nostalgic.
Early 2000s, I was middle school. – I was a baby in the early 2000s,
so I feel like that’s gonna help me, because I didn’t listen
to too much 2000s music. – The 2000s is when I was
first discovering music and discovering artists
that I really liked. So, this one’s gonna
physically hurt me to hold back. ♪ (Gorillaz, “Clint Eastwood”) ♪ – Ah, I love this song so much! – Gorillaz. Oh! (chuckles)
(sucks in breath) Dude, there’s one part,
and it’s about to come up, that just gets me every time.
That one right there. There it goes! I almost said it.
– Okay, yeah. These videos used to
kind of freak me out a little bit. – You know what? This is one
of those music videos that I would not have been able
to watch really, really late at night. – Oh, crap!

I think I can sit through this one. I got this. I almost head nodded, though.

raise the bar. – If they’re all gonna be
Gorillaz-type things, I’m gonna win this. – ♪ Oh, Maria, Maria ♪

to replicate it right now. I can’t. You’re just trying
to trick me! I know you! ♪ (50 Cent, “In Da Club”) ♪ – Come on, man! Come on!

you have a nice birthday, girl.” – I’m killing it.
Oh, no! – Ah! (claps) That’s all I’m gonna do.
I’m not gonna dance to it, though. – That was 50 Cent’s pop-off song.
That was the one that really put him on the public map.

– Maybe ’cause I don’t have that vocal range, I don’t feel
like it’s even honorable to try singing it,
because then it’s just like a dying walrus,
and I ruin the song for everybody. – I do not like losing.
I wanna be clear on that. However, I don’t feel any type of way

It got played A TON and people couldn’t get enough of it.
And now, it’s still at the point where it’s like, the song comes on,
you’re not changing the channel. That’s a great song. – (FBE) So, you didn’t sing at all,
which means you won. (ding)
– I did. I won! WOOO! Let’s go. I feel great.
This is my first FBE win. I feel like I’ve never done it before,
so I’m happy and I’m content. (ding)
– OHH, THANK GOD! I better frickin’ win at this point!!
My soul is hurt! – (FBE) You sang at some of them.
Therefore, you lost the challenge. – Yeah, but you also sang
behind the camera, watching this YouTube video.
I know you. I can see what’s going on. – You know, I think
I could’ve done better, but there were just–
If I’m being honest, there were just certain songs
that I didn’t give a damn– like, I had to move.
– It’s like the soundtrack of your life really.
When you go back that far, I remember, you know, my kids
were really young at that time, but I was still trying to be cute,
listening to my music loud. The kids always knew
when mom was coming to pick them up after school,
’cause they could hear my music playing, And it was
probably one of these songs. – Thanks for watching
