Charlie Puth accepts Jimmy Fallon’s “Musical Genre Challenge” on ‘The Tonight Show’

Andrew Lipovsky/NBCCharlie Puth was Jimmy Fallon's musical guest on Tuesday's The Tonight Show, and also joined Fallon for the latest edition of his "Musical Genre Challenge."

The game featured Fallon and Puth singing popular tunes in different musical styles. For example, Charlie delivered Lizzo's "Truth Hurts" in the style of a Broadway show tune, and his own "We Don't Talk Anymore" as a Doobie Brothers song.

Jimmy gave the "Cha Cha Slide" a super smooth '90s R&B twist and The Proclaimers' "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" a techno spin.

A previous "Musical Genre Challenge" featured Ariana Grande.

While chatting with Fallon, Charlie, who is blessed with perfect pitch -- the rare ability to re-create a musical note without a reference tone -- revealed the talent almost got him suspended from school.

"It was almost summer break and I went into the middle of the hall and went into a very reverberant part of the school and just went [imitates the school's digital bell sound]. I let the entire school out early."

Puth later returned to perform "Mother," the title track from his latest album.

‘The Voice’ recap: The four finalists are revealed

Trae Patton/NBCOn Tuesday’s episode of The Voice, the eight artists who performed Monday learned that Team Blake Shelton’s Kat Hammock Team John Legend's Will Breman and Marybeth Byrd; and Hello Sunday, from Team Kelly Clarkson were sent home.

Hello Sunday and Hammock were eliminated at the end of the one-hour results show.  They lost an "Instant Save" vote to Team Gwen Stefani’s Rose Short.

For the first time in the show's 17-year history, all four coaches will each have artist going into the finals: Ricky Duran for Team Blake; Rose Short for Team Gwen; Jake Hoot for Team Kelly; and Katie Kadan for Team Legend.

The results show also featured Shelton and Trace Atkins performing their latest collaboration, “Hell Right”; Australian singer Tones and I, singing “Dance Monkey”; and Clarkson joining American Idol season 16 runner-up Caleb Lee for their collaboration, "I Dream in Southern."

The Voice returns Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

Pink was way more excited than her daughter to meet the cast of ‘Hamilton’ in hilarious photo op

ABC/Lou RoccoEven celebrities say there's something special about New York City at Christmas time.  Pink revealed on Tuesday that she took "nyc by storm" by taking her daughter, Willow, and two of her friends to see Hamilton.

"I’ve been waiting years to see Hamilton, my daughter owns the vinyl and knows every single word, and this past weekend we finally got to take it in," the three-time Grammy Award winner gushed on Instagram.  

The photo depicts Pink along with her three young guests posing backstage with some of the cast.  While the main cast and young girls grin happily for the photo op, Pink was completely unsuccessful in hiding her inner fangirl as seen by her expression, a wide-eyed and open-mouthed goofy grin. 

She is also holding what appears to be a cup of wine in her left hand.

Pink raved in the caption, " IT WAS SO GOOD. What a way to learn and be entertained. These performers are AMAZING."

The "What about Us" singer also revealed that seeing Hamilton was only a fraction of the girls' day in the big apple.  "We also saw Radio City Music Christmas Spectacular (for the third time) and my heart is full," she revealed.

She then happily concludes, "I love NYC at Xmas."
