12 is just plain wrong. The three autotuned pre-packaged pop hacks would be more like it.

After some thought, it came to me that 5 is a dubious question! Maybe Whitney Houston's fans called her "The Voice", but that name goes back at least to Caruso! Among other singers with that nickname are Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra!

Missed one, but so glad METV put a border around the correct answer. Now I, being color blind, can actually see the correct answer.
