Alex Trebek raps his way into Twitter's heart

Alex Trebek was trending on Monday night.

Don't worry, he's not dead. 

He's just rapping. 

#AlexTrebek took off on Twitter after he read rap lyrics for an entire category on an episode of "Jeopardy" that aired Monday. Viewers excitedly tweeted about the game show host's delivery of lyrics like "Another plane, another train/ another bottle in the brain." 

The lyrics included songs by The Notorious B.I.G., the Beastie Boys and Public Enemy.

But some dismayed users thought Trebek was trending because he had died.
