    "Oof, that's too hard, there's too many versions of songs," he initially said. "Did I just accidentally say they're all bad? What I meant was there's too many options to choose from."

    Criss' choice: The performance of Ylvis' viral hit "The Fox," which aired during the show's fifth season.

    Criss described the performance as "conventionally understood as a huge oops fuck...Me being the fucking happy go lucky fart that I am, I enjoyed it because I thought it was so absurd."

    "It was so weird. It was one of these 15 minutes of fame for this song and they just decided to put it into the show...I had fun because it was ridiculous. But we were so deep into the show...and we were so delirious from the absurdity of it."

    "The more absurd it is, the funnier it is to me. So I'm sure there were people who were like, 'What the fuck is this?' and I was like, 'I know, right?!'"
