The 7 players for Round 26 did an outstanding job!

1. Jewel (Kilcher) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. But there are other jewels, and some are more well-known than others because they are used for birthstones. Please give me any jewel that is used for a birthstone.

For 10 points - Moonstone, Emerald, Amethyst, Perido, Blue Topaz, Alexandrite, Opal

2. One of my favorites is Seal. Although he is a very real person, there are some fictional seals that have become famous over the years. Name one of them.

For 10 points - Thomas Magnum (yes, he was a former Navy seal), Whiskers (from TV's Manta and Moray), Seel (a {Pokemon character), Andre (from the movie), Silly Seal (from comics), Seabert (from the animated TV series), Sneezly seal (cartoon)

3. Madonna has been around a long time, and has done her share of acting over the years. Name a movie that Madonna appeared in.

For 10 points - Evita, Dick Tracy, Girl 6, Shadows & Fog, Body of Evidence

5 points - Who's That Girl? (2)

4. Over the last few years, Alecia Moore (better known as Pink) has gained prominence, winning two Grammys during this century. Please name any movie with the word Pink in the title.

For 10 points - Pink Cadillac, Ride the Pink Horse, The Pink Telephone, The Pink Jungle, Pink Motel, Curse of the Pink Panther, Pink Ludos

5. And then there's Beyonce (Knowles). After performing with Destiny's Child, her solo career has skyrocketed. Name any track on her latest album, B'Day.

For 10 points - Upgrade U, Ring the Alarm, Freakum Dress

5 points - Green Light (2), Kitty Kat (2)

Quite remarkable - only 3 pairs of duplicate answers in the entire round! I wish I could award a point to each of you but, alas, only a few will gain the prize!

With perfect scores of 50, mininmidohio and nakarinna!
The second place pack consists of Mugaboo, Gatsby, szabs, denni, and brandz_mygirl!

Congratulations to all of you for such a fine round and especially to the two winners!
