Brain Celebri-teasers: Solution – Week #23

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Welcome back to Brain Celebri-teasers. It’s time to reveal the solution to our Week #23 puzzle:

Week #23
Category:Music
Difficulty:Medium
Clue:Young talent abounds with these two
Answer:Justin Beiber &
Shirley Temple
You’ll forgive the fuzzy photoshopping on this one, but it was hard to find a high-quality Shirley Temple picture from back in her child-star days. Still, I was struck by how similar these two’s pre-teen careers have been, and also by how much they look like each other. Coincidence? Um….probably, yeah.

The winner this week was Ilya!
