'Jeopardy!' contestants criticized for missing Taylor Swift clue

A Taylor Swift clue on "Jeopardy!" left all three contestants stumped on Wednesday night's show.

Contestant Matt Mierswa chose a clue in the "Title That Completes the Rhyme" category for $400, and it just happened to be about Taylor Swift.

"And I’m just like oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh, you need to just stop, like can you just not, step on my gown?" Host Ken Jennings read off the clue card.

I really wish this was Johnny [Gilbert] reading these," Jennings responded when Mierswa was unable to give an answer. "This is ‘You Need to Calm Down’ by Taylor Swift."

Fans were quick to jump on Twitter and complain about the contestants not recognizing one of Swift's famous songs.

"None of the jeopardy contestants got the Taylor swift clue shut the whole show down," one user wrote.

Mierswa still finished in first place during the "Jeopardy!" episode, his winnings reaching $26,644.
