Magnifique!

Quiz Rules/Format
(Same as last year, 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!

    500. Period. That’s it, that’s all!

    • rolllin’ down the street with 500 points!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        That’s right. Have you watched his show with Martha? It’s pretty surreal.

      • I haven’t seen it yet – I heard it being discussed on Q at one point, the critics were saying they had surprisingly good chemistry!

  2. 200. Wasn’t his second name another word for leo at some point?

  3. 500 but very lucky guess….

  4. Zack permalink

    500, but it was close. I didn’t realize he was a Jr.

  5. 500 each for Mika and I. Trivia: his cousin is WWE wrestler Sasha Banks, and his former bodyguard also wrestled under the name Brodus Clay – guess where they took the first name from?

  6. Ever since I read that Reg Dwight was the starting place for our Elt, I’ve had a thing about real names. Today that alone netted me the 500.

  7. 200 today.

  8. 200 points. Never listened though I heard the artist’s debut LP is excellent.

  9. 400. The dinner party clue was hilarious. I can’t shake the image of him worrying that his souffle will collapse.

  10. 400. More of a result for my film knowledge than anything to do with music today!

  11. 500. I’m kind of a fan. I’ve even reviewed him!

  12. 400 as Old SCHOOL is one of my fav’s …
    As well I’m Old School..Just SAYIN!

  13. 400 for me although I first went to the original TV show for Starsky & Hutch until I realized you meant the movie remake.

  14. 400. I may have forgotten about Dre from time to time but not this guy

  15. 400! Good thing I watch silly movies.

  16. 400 no real reason. It’s just where I fell.

  17. It’s the bow to the wow, 5-hizzle this time round!

  18. 300, I’ve always found that turn of events rather hilarious…

  19. it’s 500 for me [in a cloud of smoke]
