Ready for Quiz #26?

Summertime, and the quizzin’s easy?!

.

Quiz Rules/Format
(feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Here goes!

  11. 200, but only because my lovely wife showed me the video for that song one time. Eesh!

    • But retaining that ‘eesh’-worthy knowledge has finally paid off!

      • True, but then people wonder why I sometimes can’t remember important actual life things… my RAM is full of eesh, apparently…

  12. 200 a shameful performance.

  13. 300 because I ain’t watch no singing shows.

  14. I get 300 today.

  15. 200, but I should have had a hunch at the 300 pt hint

  16. 300. Tight pants? I watch Conan.

  17. 100. I thought I wasn’t going to get this one! Love her singing, too.

  18. 500- lucky guess.

  19. 100 for me. I love the track Dirrty too. Damnit!

  20. 500 Glad I watch “The Tonight Show” a lot
