    Alex Trebek Sang Lizzo's "Truth Hurts" On "Jeopardy!" And It's The Content We All Need Right Now

    Feelin' good as hell watching this.

    I don't even have to tell you guys how rough these past few weeks have been.

    However, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek provided a bright spot during these dark times when he recited the lyrics to Lizzo's "Truth Hurts" this week:

    Alex Trebek singing Lizzo is actually exactly what we needed today

    Yes, Alex the Great Trebek™ sang these iconic lyrics and it was glorious:

    When the contestant answered correctly with "Who is Lizzo?", Alex looked directly at the camera and deadpanned, "Yup — and I did it exactly like she does, didn't I?"

    People couldn't get enough of it. I'm people:


    It was everything we didn't know we needed, tbh:

    The clip gave life to our otherwise dreary quarantine:

    It isn't the first time Lizzo has been featured on the show. In October, Lizzo celebrated being the answer to a question writing on Instagram, "I MADE IT I LOVE YOU ALEX TREBEK."

    Thank you, Alex, for making me and the rest of the world smile today.
