Sometimes these interviews involve pop quizzes — about your own life.

That was the case on Thursday’s “Today” show, where the musician turned actor was asked to complete the lyrics to ‘N Sync’s “Tearin’ Up My Heart” and to name how many times he’s hosted “Saturday Night Live.”

Watch the interview, with quiz section beginning at around 4:27, below.
