On Wednesday night, Kaley Cuoco appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The Big Bang Theory star was put to the test during an audience Q&A session when an a young woman asked if Cuoco knew the lyrics to the show’s theme song.
The cast of the show had just completed their 10th season and since they had filmed over two hundred episode, Fallon asked Cuoco if she thought she could sing it, to which she replied, “I could try.”
Watch below as Cuoco eloquently signs the theme song!

Not too shabby, she definitely ended the segment with a BANG!
How did this catchy tune come about? Creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady enlisted Ed Robertson and Tyler Stewart of Barenaked Ladies to develop a song for their project. They were such fans of the band that they hadn’t even considered asking any other artists.
The band also created a special full-length version music video of the hit series’ theme song which included behind the scenes footage of The Big Bang Theory set.

Now that CBS has renewed the show for another two seasons, Cuoco and the cast can continue to belt out this catchy tune!
