Ready for Quiz #24?

I’m still waiting!

.

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!

Artist of the Week #24
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)

For:

500 points………………..American singer, born in Detroit in 1944.

In the tradition of celebrating ‘The Other Guys,’ ‘The Other Gals’ in her former group (at the height of the group’s popularity) were named Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson…

.

.

.

.

.

400 points………………..and in their case, ‘The Other Gals’ ended up being reclassified as a backing group for this singer.

But I suppose if one has to be cast in a supporting role, there are worse names to have than being called “The Supremes,” or a name defined as being superior to all others!

.

.

.

.

.

.

300 points……………….This singer appeared alongside Michael Jackson in both the movie of The Wiz (as Dorothy & The Scarecrow) and in the video for We Are The World (duet-ting on the 1st chorus lyric, “it’s true we make a better day just you and me”).

Or as a late-90s CanCon clue:

.

.

.

.

.

200 points………………..And according to the Guinness Book of World Records, she is recognized as the Greatest Female Artist in UK and US Chart His(Hers)tory.

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, indeed!

.

.

.

.

100 points………………..The artist is D______ R_____

Answer: ديانا روس
