MC Alex Trebek was in rare form on "Jeopardy" Monday night, doing his best to rap lyrics by Grandmaster Flash, Public Enemy, Dr. Dre, Notorious B.I.G. and the Beastie Boys for clues in the Double Jeopardy category "It's a Rap."

When one contestant had trouble suppressing laughter at the traditionally stone-faced host, Trebek said, "I don't know why that's making you laugh so much."
