In addition to television hosting, veteran “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek can now add a new skill to his long list of talents: rapping.

The host got to drop some rhymes thanks to the category “Let's Rap, Kids!” on Monday night's episode, which featured college students as part of the show's collegiate tournament, according to


Much to the contestants' amusement, Trebek rapped hits like Kanye West's “Famous.” And he did it just about as well as you'd expect a 76-year-old man would.

In his cool and collected manner, Trebek did his best to recite lyrics from chart-toppers including Drake's “Started From The Bottom” and  Lil Wayne's “A Mili.”


After Trebek finished his final rap of the night, Designer's “Panda,” he joked to the audience:

“I was just getting into this rap thing. I'm not too good at it but I was getting into it.”

Trebek's rap skills were a massive hit on social media. Many Twitter users applauded the veteran television host for his efforts:

It's unlikely that Trebek will trade in his game show-hosting gig for a hip-hop career, but lots of people seem to have their fingers crossed.

The “Jeopardy” host has yet to respond to the unexpected outpouring of support.
