The host of "Jeopardy" Alex Trebek had asked Sarah Jett Rayburn the name of the African warrior celebrated by Zulu's on the 24th of every September, and she answered, saying Chaka Khan instead of Shaka Zulu.

The video of Sarah's response, which was uploaded online, has been seen almost 4.3 million times and has gone on to rake in a lot of comments from fans of the show. Replying to the post, someone said:

"She was half right, and isn't Chaka Kahn ALWAYS the right answer? #Jeopardy #ChakaKahn."

As usual, tweeps on Twitter started retweeting and sharing the video with most replying in hilarious gifs and emojis.

A tweep even went as far as posting a picture of Chaka Khan with a warrior's crown, battle sword, and shield while saying: "Legendary Warrior, Chaka Khan."

Sarah is not the only one to have given "Chaka Khan" as the wrong answer in a quiz show.

Someone expressed that Sarah's response left them in stitches as they could not help but notice the look of dismay on Alex's face after her response.

With the comments under the original post full of hilarious reactions, a fan of the show shared a Steve Harvey's dismayed gif after a fan expressed that:

"This is the one time I need Steve Harvey to be hosting, just so he can completely stop the game & represent my disbelief."

It seems Sarah is not the only one to have given "Chaka Khan" as the wrong answer in a quiz show. Someone shared a video of the show "Weakest Link," where RuPaul had blurted out Chaka Khan's name to a horoscope question.

On her time on the show, Sarah not only made people laugh with her wrong answer, but, according to Alex Trebek, she was the first contestant to explain her wrong Final Jeopardy question.

When she tried to explain her wrong choice, she kept apologizing for talking, and Alex had to assure her that it was okay and a welcome first for the show.

While Sarah Jett Rayburn might have missed this question, and have her wrong answer immortalized on the internet forever, she ultimately won the show.
