Ready for Quiz #28?

Yes, Yes, Yes or No, No, No?!


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!

Why, I do think you’re ready for this, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland of course!

  1. 200 well because

  2. Harrison permalink

    100 please

  3. 500. I didn’t realise they dated back to 1990.

    • That was news to me too – and also why I decided to say ‘in the 1990s’ in the 500 clue, I think they would have been something like 9 years old in 1990!

  4. 400. Dang. Sarah will probably get 500. She is slipping away now!

  5. 500! Heheh, bills bills bills….

    • The lead singer is such a great accounting teacher – with both bills bills bills (describing operating expenses) here & ‘everything you own is in a box to the left’ (the very placement of ‘assets’ on a rudimentary balance sheet) from her solo career!

  6. I don’t think you’re ready for these points. 500 please

  7. Ugh. 200 only this week Geoff. Honesty sucks at times lol

    • I’m impressed each week by the honesty of the quiz participants, Deke – especially on the goose egg weeks, people are often brutally honest with comments such as ‘no idea’ ‘never heard’ ‘still don’t know after the translation’ !

  8. Paul permalink

    400 this week on a blind lucky guess.

  9. jprobichaud permalink

    Only 400 for me this week.

  10. 500 each for Mika and me.

  11. Zack permalink

    500. When it comes to staying up in the rankings I’m also a survivor!

  12. 500 is please, but only if you’re ready for this jelly Geoff.

  13. 300 points please! Kelly Rowland was a judge on The X Factor US, so I knew who she was, but I had no idea the group was a thing (at first) because Beyonce has been solo for decades lol.

  14. I’ll have 300 thanks to George

  15. I get 500 points thanks to my buddy George in Montreal. He loved this act and sang it me. Often.

  16. Holen permalink


    Strikeout for me this week.

    • To borrow a Principal Strickland insult, I’d call you a Slacker, Holen – but you bounced back nicely in week 29!

  17. Full 500 points for me, Geoff. I may even have a CD or 5 kicking around here somewhere!
