The 92nd Scripps National Spelling Bee had an epic ending with an unprecedented eight-way tie in the competition that aired on ESPN.

While the final event usually goes on until there is one winner, the unshakable spellers went into round 20.

With a total of eight spellers left in round 17 of the finals, the judges made the decision to crown all who spelled their word correctly after the 20th round co-champions.
