For those of you who like playing along with the video, here you go. I had some issues while recording, so one question was edited and the sound drops about half way through the test.

Thanks for posting this. 30 right in a row to start off had me thinking it would be a breeze. 14/20 to finish was more humbling.

"F" hint not enough
Pick a social media site? Wrong one
Modern music? Heard of them only
Fashion house? Yeah, good luck guessing
50/50/90 on a country? Naturally
Current YA Lit? Even with fill in the blank I was blank

Good luck to all Teens hopeful for the audition for the next step.
