[YOUTUBE "uxJXmYahSCg"] Who would you put your money on in a beer pong showdown: Anna Kendrick and Hoda Kotb or Darius Rucker and Kathie Lee Gifford?

Consider that one for a second. Either team could have the edge, but if you watch the video, you'll see one of them clearly has a bit more experience bouncing ping-pong balls into keg cups. (And no worries: Today subbed out actual beer for root beer.)

Kris Jenner Is 'Trying to Be a Good Friend' to Bruce, Kathie Lee Gifford Says

Originally posted 04/27/2015 06:00PM

Beyond her Tweet in which she called ex-husband Bruce Jenner a "hero" for his decision to move forward with transitioning into a woman, Kris has kept fairly quiet on the subject.

However, Kathie Lee Gifford spoke up in Kris' defense on Monday. A longtime friend of the Jenners, the Today host – along with her husband, Frank – is even a godparent to Kendall and Kylie.

During her 20/20 special, Sawyer said that Kris, 59, could not be reached for comment – a charge that the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch later denied on Twitter.

Cyndi Lauper's Big Surprise as 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' Turns 30

Cyndi Lauper has plenty to celebrate – and she's not doing it alone.

Not only is the singer-songwriter Tony-nominated for her critically acclaimed score to the best-musical contender Kinky Boots, but she's also marking the 30th anniversary of the monster hit that first put her on the map, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," which she released in 1983.

To celebrate? She was totally surprised by the Kinky Boots ensemble. After quietly securing permission from Lauper's manager and her record company, Sony Music, they assembled this performance music video (see below) of Lauper's signature number.

"It's so sweet, I'm crying," Lauper, 59, during a quick break from rehearsal Monday, told PEOPLE of her reaction to what was done – and about those who participated. She first saw the video Sunday night, before it was posted to YouTube.
