SCRIPPS NATIONAL SPELLING BEE
May 31, 2012  | By David Bianculli

ESPN, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
Could you spell humuhumunukunukuapuaa? That's reportedly one of the words most popular with this year's Scripps National Spelling Bee contestants. Six-year-old spelling phenom Lori Anne Madison, the youngest-ever contestant, stumbled on the word "ingluvies" in Thursday's semi-finals and didn't make it into tonight's round, but fifty other kids from around the country will take the stage to compete in the finals.
