After overcoming their initial shock that a global pop sensation had joined them, the kids gleefully sang to Jane's cherished tune, the "Ballad of a Homeschooled Girl." The turning point came when their mother, Molly, asked Billy for his favorite song. Although he promptly answered with "Get Him Back," it was not the melody or lyrics that won him over.

His affection for the song stemmed from a rather unique reason: a plan to settle a score with Rodrigo's ex, involving a not-so-friendly punch. Emphatically, Billy said, "Punch him in the p--is," in response to his mother's question about why he wanted to get the singer's ex back for her.

Kimmel raised the topic of profanity, highlighting a specific instance, stating, "We had to listen to the um the clean versions of your song cuz the Vampire song has a catchy little lyric in there that our son started singing back to us." In response, the "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" star explained:

"I love using a swear word when I think it's like tasteful and necessary, but sometimes I try to tone it down. Like there were a few songs in the album where I was swearing all over them, and I kind of had to like pair it back." 

She also shared some original lyrics she had initially put in her song "Get Him Back," pointing out that she decided to switch them out because it felt too spicy for her younger audience.
