"Jeopardy's" Alex Trebek has a penchant for adding a little musical pizzazz to his clues. Usually his attempts wind up disturbing much of the Internet, as they did that time he delivered a heartfelt rendition of Motley Crue's "Girls Girls Girls" earlier this year.

Trebek is strong, though, and pushed on in the face of adversity. This week, he performed yet another one of his tunes when he came to the tantalizing lyric category featuring "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."
