No, that's not it. You need to look for a connecting link between the questions rather than the answers ("helium" is the answer to (3), not the question).

I'll give you another clue: the ones where you hit the keyword are (2) and (5). Also remember that I originally referred to a secret message.

OK, another even bigger clue: the two keywords you hit were "Hotel" and "Papa". I'm not giving you any more clues!

Quote:

Only one wrong, sorry

Quote:

Well, in that case Dame Shirley should be in there three times...
But no, Adele was part of the answer to (19)

Jack Knight and Alicia Keys are two of the missing answers, who was the third?
