As the entire panel and the live studio audience burst out laughing, a clip of the moment was shown. In the video, four female dancers busted some moves inside a place that looked like a church. A baffled Joy announced to her co-hosts, “I don’t know… I would just like to have my ashes sprinkled over Liam Neeson, and that would be enough for me!”

However, Sunny felt that the funeral was, “pretty hard to watch.” On the other hand, Ana admitted that she wishes for a drag show to play Gloria Gaynor’s song I Will Survive but with a twist. She said, “But change the lyrics to ‘I didn’t survive.’”
