Alex Trebek became a trending Internet topic after the "Jeopardy" host rapped popular lyrics for a category called "It's a Rap" on the show.
Marking their Twitter posts with the hashtag #AlexTrebek, many laughed and offered their admiration for the relatively staid game show host who stepped up and managed a decent rap by the end of the category. His delivery on the first couple of answers was a little stiff, but Trebek played into his role by the end and managed a decent rhythm.

The lyrics Trebek rapped came from Grandmaster Flash, The Beastie Boys, and the final $2,000 question was "'You go ooh and ahh when I jump in my car/ People treat me like' this hall of fame L.A.
