Alex Trebek Uses the T-Pain Machine

Never one to miss out on a good meme, Alex Trebek finally got around to Auto-Tuning his voice on Jeopardy! last night. Wait, what? Yes, this happened! The category was "Alex Meets Auto-Tune," and each answer was a few lines from a traditional song as interpreted by Trebek with a heavy dose of (frankly, amateurish-seeming) Auto-Tune manipulation. The lyrics were written out on the screen, so the challenge was apparently deducing the melody through Trebek's controversial-recording-software-addled voice. Joey Genereux, a biochemist from San Diego, California, found it very amusing, and so did we.
