Jimmy Fallon‘s game with Elizabeth Banks put her improv skills to the test.

The Power Rangers star followed the likes of Cate Blanchett, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Amy Schumer, and Miley Cyrus in “Emotional Interview,” where Fallon and his Tonight Show guest must carry a conversation while adapting to changing prompts.

Highlights include Banks’ ugly cry skills and her ability to tell a bad story, while Fallon sold the “Jimmy thinks Elizabeth is Queen Elizabeth” bit. “But when you go to concerts, you can just go by yourself?” he asked, before channeling a British accent. “You probably see the band and go, ‘Hello!'”

The host also performed a song on the spot when he was prompted to act as if life were a musical. “I know you’re an American and you’re from this country here,” he sang. “So we’ll come together, we’ll drink some whiskey, and have some ice-cold beer.”

Watch the game play out in the clip above.
