A Jeopardy! contestant lost out on $1,200 after able to tell the difference between Eminem or Jack White in a category devoted to vinyl.

Host Alex Trebek gave the clue, "A recent vinyl resurgence has been aided by this musician, who built a pressing plant in his Detroit hometown.”

Trebek included a photo of White along with the verbal clue to help the contestants.

But even with the photo, the contestant named Julie thought the "Lazaretto" musician's goth features signaled another artist: Eminem.

Julie guessed incorrectly and thus didn't build on her pile of winnings.

Now she has to live with the fact that she confused White for Eminem.
