Alex Trebek isn’t a common name that trends on the Internet. So, when fans noticed that his name was, in fact, trending, they immediately were concerned. However, it wasn’t for the reason that many assumed, but instead was over his rapping solo on a recent episode of Jeopardy.
On Monday night’s episode of Jeopardy, Trebek rapped the clues to the questions that were featured in the “It’s a rap” category. Trebek rapped the lyrics from Dr. Dre, Notorious B.I.G., Public Enemy, and the Beastie Boys, and instantly became an internet sensation and a top trending topic on Twitter.
Fans were relieved to know that Trebek wasn’t trending because he had died, and were amazed that Trebek had such amazing rapping skills.
“I got really nervous that Alex Trebek was trending because he died, but he was just rapping on Jeopardy,” one user tweeted. “All is right with the world.” Another user tweeted: “Alex Trebek reading Public Enemy lyric jeopardy answers is possibly the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
