Hip-hop legend Missy Elliott weighed in on Tuesday night’s Jeopardy! contestant Julian Glander, who has the peculiar talent of saying the alphabet backward phonetically, Outsider reports.

Missy retweeted a clip from her “Work It” video, saying, “Oh you speaking my type of language huh,” in response to a video of the Jeopardy! contestant singing the alphabet backward.

Missy nor Glander have revealed how either of them can speak backward, but people on Twitter were encouraging the Grammy winner to put him on a remix of the track.

Jeopardy! host Ken Jennings appeared a bit perplexed by the contestant, saying, “Wow. This is the first episode of ‘Jeopardy!’ guest directed by David Lynch, I think.”

“We recorded you doing that in rehearsal because I wanted to know if this works. Let’s listen to what that would sound like if we played that backward,” he added as the audience chuckled.

Amazingly, when the show flipped it and reversed Glander’s rendition of the alphabet, it sounded similar to the alphabet song.

“Very nice,” Jennings said after showing the clip.
