That special event was organized by the Toronto-based musicial choir dubbed Choir! Choir! Choir! — who won’t mind that shoutout on national TV.

Mention of the ’80s hit song seemed appropriate given the fact the Canadian doesn’t seem to be giving up on the popular game show anytime soon.

The 23-year-old Nova Scotia native made it 22 wins on Jeopardy! on Wednesday night. She finished the episode with $28,400 in winnings to bring her 22-show total to a whopping $534,984.
