Friday Funday Trivia: Best New Artist Grammy Winners and Nominees


 

In honor of the Grammys  (which air on Sunday, February 10th), this week's quiz features 3 montages of 15 photos of performers who were nominated for or won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. You have to correctly identify the performer.  To enlarge the montages, click on them. 

 Below the montages are the point values for each photo (40 pts total). Also, you can earn 1 bonus pt each if you can correctly identify the 7 performers below who did win the Best New Artist Grammy.  You can do this by placing a "W" after the performer's name. Note: you can only select up to 7 photos so placing a "W" after every performer's name is not allowed.  Also, instead of the normal 3, there are 4  bonus questions totaling 13 pts.

If you are a Friday Funday Trivia virgin about to be touched for the very first time, please read the following rules before playing:


The game is pub style so looking up the answers, using friends/family/co-workers, etc. for help,  is not allowed.


If you are the only player to correctly identify a photo/photo set, you earn 5 bonus points. The first player to submit their final answers to me will earn 2 bonus points.

* Please do not post your answers in the comments section. Instead, send them to ultfan@gmail.com no later than Sunday night (2/10) at 11:59 PM EST. The answers will be posted on Monday, February 11th.

Not an official rule: If you have no clue, feel free to come up with an intentionally funny answer. Although you won't get credit for a correct answer, you'll get a thumbs up from me for originality, execution, and showmanship. What can I say, I love to be entertained and I'll take it any way I can get it!


Have fun and good luck!

Damn it I knew all of these. I used to have "Afternoon Delight" on a 45. I knew it was going to be a huge record when I first heard it.
