Think back into the swirling mists of Adele and Rihanna, what can you see!? There’s still room for improvement, so why not have another go and see if you can score higher?!

Awesome! Well done! You’ve scored really well here! You clearly know your music and it shows! There isn’t much that has slipped past you and if any of your friends ever need advice on Adele’s early career then you’re clearly the person to ask! Well done!
