Every once in awhile, Jeopardy throws host Alex Trebek a curveball and makes every viewer a winner.

On Wednesday’s episode, the $400 answer in the “Musical Acts” category forced Trebek to spit some rhymes: “This Canadian rapped, ‘Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman, them boys up to somethin’, uh uh uh I think I need some Robitussin.’ ”

Contestant George wisely buzzed in with the correct question — Who is Drake? — and collected the cash. Trebek, meanwhile, collected a slew of tweets from viewers cheering for his performance.

“Trebek spitting Drizzy is what Canadian dreams are made of,” wrote @TheClemReport. “Alex Trebek just did a pretty sick rendition of ‘Jumpman’ on Jeopardy so look out @Drake,” said @hannland.

And @diagostinoj declared, “Alex Trebek trying to rap Drake lyrics is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time.”

Watch the clip above while we wait for Drake’s reaction.
