Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda Rap and Sing Alexander Hamilton Clues on Jeopardy    

On Wednesday night, Lin-Manuel Miranda appeared on Jeopardy to provide the clues for—what else?—a category about Alexander Hamilton. In a gambit that swings between funny and awkward, Miranda delivered clues excerpted from his Broadway musical Hamilton.

Miranda delivers some himself by rapping and singing, while others are sourced from videos of the show. Sample clue: “ ‘How does the bastard orphan/ Immigrant decorated war vet/ Unite the colonies through more debt?’ Is asked about Hamilton shortly after he begins to run this Cabinet department.”
