There are milestones in every (successful) celebrity’s life: The first autograph they sign, the first time they appear in a New York Times crossword puzzle and the first time their name is a question on “Jeopardy!” But the first time they get an entire category dedicated to their life and achievements on the cerebral game show? Well, that’s just unheard of.

And for the most part, the contestants really knew their Bey! Sure, the questions were elementary for even the most #basic Beyoncé fans, but these champions shan’t be discounted. Well, except for the one guy who respnoded “Drunk of Love” instead of “Drunk in Love.” Oops.
