JEOPARDY! fans slammed host Mayim Bialik tonight after she laughed at a contestant's wrong answer.
Daniel Nguyen was stumped by a question about pop band Panic! At the Disco.
On tonight's episode of Jeopardy!, the contestants were shown a clip of Panic! At The Disco performing live at The Billboard Music Awards.
When asked to identify the band, Daniel fumbled a guess as he answered: "Who are the Jonas Brothers?"
Host Mayim and the studio audience laughed as she told him: "No."
However, fans on Twitter weren't too happy with the reaction.

One wrote: "Why did they just laugh at this man’s incorrect answer on Jeopardy?
"Don’t give Panic! At The Disco the credit they don’t deserve, that was The Jonas Brothers for me."
Viewers also had criticisms about Mayim's overall hosting style, with one complaining: "I can’t stand Mayim! I feel like I’m being lectured by an assistant professor at a third-rate college."
Another snarked: "Is it me, or does Mayim sound too rehearsed on Jeopardy!"

However, some viewers also saw the funny side to math teacher Daniel's incorrect answer.
One asked: "That guy really thought Panic! at the Disco were the Jonas Brothers?"
Another echoed: "How did the guy on Jeopardy! say that Panic! At The Disco were the Jonas brothers?
"How do you mix that up?"
Daniel is the show's current champion, with a two-day winning streak and a total winnings of $25, 199.
Despite his success, tonight's blunder was not his first music-related mistake.
Last night, he erroneously referred to the rapper 50 Cent as "50 Cents" in a question about a musician from Queens who performed at this year's Super Bowl.
Fans described the error as "offensive" and "disrespectful".
