This University Challenge contestant's reaction to the music round was amazing

Powell is our hero.

ANOTHER NIGHT, ANOTHER University Challenge. Last night, Oscar Powell was the stand out contestant.


The student, from Peterhouse Cambridge, was welcomed by audiences back to the quarter finals of the college quiz show.

During the music round, they had to guess Je T’aime by Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin

Unfortunately, Powell acted like he had never heard music before.

It was just the beginning of his epic facial expressions

So now.

Je t’aime.
