I have been without television for a while; and, it's been a long time since I have watched Jeopardy (I use to watch regularly). Do Final Jeopardy clues ever consist of any of the following:

- pictures
- audio
- video

I am curious. Thank you.
Plenty of instances of images in the FJ! round. Look for the orange links: https://j-archive.com/listfjs.php?season=20
You can change the number for different seasons.

I'm blanking on video although I think Cheryl & choir sang for the think time.

This game has an audio one:

Nice! I made the right guess before cuing up the sound clip. Are there other possibilities? The only other rhyming pairs I can think of seem unlikely to impossible:

guitar and sitar

viola and pianola

So there have been Final Jeopardy clues with audio and images. I suppose it is possible there have been clues with video as well.

I thought for speed, they would only do clues with text. I was wrong.

Thank you!

Was there one done by Alex at an Air Force base?

I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

I entered this game, so I'm pretty sure the image is a screencap of a video. I don't remember for sure if there was audio though.

Can you help me connect the dots on this one? I can't even find that quote by Googling, much less figure out how I was supposed to come up with the right response.

MUSIC ACROSS HISTORY

At a September 2022 concert, this chart-topping pop star played a crystal flute that had belonged to president James Madison
Spoiler
Who is Lizzo? This is for the benefit of us oldies, for whom "Pop music" + flute = Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull. Lizzo is the most famous present day pop flautist.

I'd say that's a better joke!
For anybody intrigued by Oscar Levant, Sean Hayes will be playing him in a Broadway show next spring...

I'm not sure Levant was joking, but yeah, Benny is a great guess.

I once planned and may possibly even have posted a different version of the clue. It mentioned that the musician in question was turned down by the Princeton Philharmonic. At this time, I felt that would have made it too easy.
