Taraji P. Henson and Jimmy Fallon played “Fast Family Feud” on Tuesday’s “Tonight Show.” The “Empire” star and talk show host went head to head in a game that’s “Just like ‘Family Feud,’ only faster.” Watch the funny video below!

Henson and Fallon were each asked questions that had multiple answers, and had to guess what the most popular answer was among the polled studio audience. Whoever buzzed in first got to answer, and if he or she got the number one answer that person automatically won the round. However, if the contestant didn’t correctly choose the most popular answer, his or her competitor got a chance to steal.

Henson and Fallon were first asked to “Name something in your house that you hide when guests come over.” Henson buzzed in quickly and shouted, “The drugs!” “Drugs/alcohol” turned out to be the number two answer, but Fallon was unable to guess the most popular answer (“dirty laundry”), so the actress won the round. Next, the contestants were asked to “Name a man famous for his beard.” Henson buzzed in first and guessed basketball player James Harden. She was incorrect, and Fallon stole the round when he correctly guessed “Santa Claus” to be the number one answer.

In round three, Fallon and Henson had to “Give a reason someone might cancel a date.” Henson buzzed in first again, and correctly guessed the number one answer to be getting “sick.” For the final question, the contestants were told to “Complete this phrase: __ Balls.” Henson proceeded to blurt out a few hilarious guesses as to what the blank word could be. See the video below to find out what she said, what the correct answer was, and who won the game!
