It’s another crossword, this time asking for answers to seemingly random clues. If you can correctly guess these clues – you’ll be able to guess the final artist. Fans on social media have been suggesting the artist in question could be Lana Del Rey.


Well, the first clue asks for something which is variously referred to as The Golden State (Lana Del Rey mentions San Francisco in the lyrics for Looking for America). The second is another word for ‘having a great affection or liking for’ (Lana has a song called Love).

Next, fans are asked to name a red fruit with a single hard stone (she also has a song called Cherry), then another word for ‘become different’ (Change is also another of Lana’s hits). Finally you need to name an employee who mixes and serves drinks (which could refer to her song, Bartender).

Whoever the final artist is, they’ll join the already announced Travis Scott, who will take to the stage on Friday November 29, The Killers, who will close the show on Sunday December 1, and a still-to-be-announced star who will kick things off on Thursday November 28. Although not confirmed, it’s widely speculated this will be masked DJ, Marshmello.
