Alex Trebek delights viewers with recital of Lizzo lyrics

There may be a pandemic racing across the globe, but at least we have Alex Trebek.

The “Jeopardy” host delighted viewers with his deadpan recitation of lyrics from Lizzo’s smash song “Truth Hurts.”

Under the category of “Lyrics of Today,” the 79-year-old intoned: “New man on the Minnesota Vikings, truth hurts, needed something more exciting, bom bom bi dom bi dum bum bay”’

A contestant correctly answered “Lizzo.” Trebek then quipped, “And I did it exactly how she does it, did I?,” which prompted laughter from the studio audience.

After Variety’s Rebecca Rubin shared the clip on Twitter, users were thrilled.

“My Love For Alex Trebek Grew Tenfold After Hearing Him Recite Lizzo Lyrics on Jeopardy,” wrote one follower.

Another added: “Watching Alex Trebek imitate @Lizzo on @Jeopardy tonight may be the best thing you will see all day.”

“Need to have an entire album of Alex Trebek reciting pop and rap songs, he improves upon the material greatly. it would be golden,” another fan suggested.

Last March, Trebek revealed that he has stage IV pancreatic cancer. Earlier this month, he announced that he had completed his first round of chemotherapy.
