On Monday's episode of the game show, one clue contained some of the lyrics to the theme from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. While Trebek could have simply read the clue, he instead did his best at re-creating Will Smith's version of it.

[YOUTUBE "M7Y7QchQMqs"] In the past, we've gotten a kick out of epic Jeopardy fails. Here's one fail that's still a win.
The Final Jeopardy clue asked contestants to name a hymn that happened to also be the title of a 2009 Tony-nominated musical. Contestant Choyon Manjrekar, who apparently saw the Final Jeopardy clue "hymns" and knew it wasn't his cup of tea decided to have some fun with his answer.
His answer? Kinky Boots, which is probably not the title of anyone's hymn but is a musical about a family-owned shoe factory that starts making high-heeled boots for drag queens.
