Taraji P. Henson, Normani Have Hilarious Reactions To Getting Drenched On Jimmy Fallon’s New Show

Celebrities compete for various charities on Jimmy Fallon’s nerve-wracking variety show where one wrong answer could leave you completely soaked.

Actor Taraji P. Henson and singer Normani found out firsthand in a recent episode, leading to a hilarious and viral moment.

The Oscar-winning actor and R&B singer recently appeared in That’s My Jam, which is inspired by popular Tonight Show games. Each episode features two teams featuring two celebrity couples who compete in a series of dance, music and trivia based games and performances for a charity of their choice.

During a segment called “Slay It, Don’t Spray It,” Henson and Normani had to sing along to a popular song, but when the music stopped, they had to complete the lyrics or have their faces splashed with water on the microphones.

When the duo tackled Jennifer Lopez’s 1999 hit “Waiting for Tonight,” Henson couldn’t remember some of the lyrics, causing both stars to become waterlogged.

“You can’t get black girls hair wet,” yelled the Hidden Figures star. “It wasn’t in my contract! I’m leaving.”

The former Fifth Harmony member straightened her own hair as she shrieked, “My omission!”

As the hilarious moment went viral on Twitter with many female viewers linked to traumatic TV moments, Normani joined in the hilarious tweet, “My heart was racing because BABY was on the verge of this shrinking.”

Henson and Normani competed against singer-actress Rita Ora and filmmaker Taika Waititi to support the charities Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, American Cancer Society, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and Indigenous Environmental Network.

Josh Groban, Alessia Cara, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Chance The Rapper also recently took part in the series, as did ‘The Voice’ trainers Ariana Grande, Blake Shelton, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson.

The hour-long music and comedy variety game show airs Mondays at 9:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
