A FAMILY Feud question about top female singers has left the internet up in arms.
Host Steve Harvey, the audience, and the contestants were baffled by the results.

“Name a female singer who can bring the house down when she performs live,” he prompted.
Michael and Michelle were at the buzzer representing their respective teams and Michael buzzed in first with Beyonce.
“You better know it, greatest living performer today!” the longtime host gushed.
The board revealed Beyonce was at No. 4 with a mere 7 votes.
“Number 4, wow. This is going to be interesting,” Steve said looking stunned.
Michael’s team got to play as the opposing team incorrectly guessed Cardi B. But the other six of seven music divas were anyone’s guess from there.
Michael’s team then thought of Diana Ross which resulted in a strike, and Steve said: “She does, though.”
The next guess Jennifer Lopez was No. 2 with 13 votes.
Michael’s teammate Lee then guessed Mariah Carey which got a second strike and he and his fellow teammates looked at each other in confusion.
Ariana Grande then got a third X as the air in the room seemed to hilariously evaporate.
The other team got the chance to steal and they guessed Shakira which resulted in a strike so they didn’t get to play.
Only three divas could be guessed in total and when the entire board was displayed- it was much to the audience and the internet’s chagrin.
The contestants repeated each one in growing discord and by the time “Carrie Underwood” was chanted it was in an upward inflection as if everyone was questioning the rankings.
The audience was left near-silent by the end and someone could be heard saying “Jesus,” off-screen.
‘WHO THE HELL DID THEY ASK?’
“This is insane on so many levels,” one user replied.
“Lee was FLABBERGASTED! As was I!!! Who was number 1 if it wasn’t Beyoncé or Mariah!?!!!?” wrote another.
“Why was Lady Gaga number one even the crowd was confused,” wrote a third.
“This has me crying. The way even the studio audience was confused by Beyoncé’s placement and the way everyone got more and more confused as the answers were revealed,” wrote a fourth.
“J-Lo above Beyonce for live performances should get the show canceled lmao,” a fifth person replied.
“No Diana? NO ARETHA?! Beyonce at number 4???? But J-WHO?!?” a sixth person posted.
A seventh wrote: “After that the ENERGY LEFT the room. THE WHOLE AUDIENCE WAS DISAPPOINTED” and an eighth: “The faces and collective gasp when Mariah got snubbed.”
One more wondered: “Now who the hell did they ask?” and another: “They couldn’t even spell Reba’s name right!”
“This list doesn’t make one lick of sense,” accused a final frenzied fan.
