Iggy Azalea attends The 41st Annual People's Choice Awards at Nokia Theatre LA Live on January 7, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

Oof: A contestant on a recent episode of Jeopardy confused Iggy Azalea for Azealia Banks.

"This Australian hip-hopper used the pet name/street name system to come up with her rap name," host Alex Trebek read.
"Who is Azealia Banks?"  contestant Nicholas -- who was up by $5,000 -- said, guessing wrong.

Iggy Azalea -- born Amethyst Amelia Kelly -- took the former part of her rap moniker "Iggy" from her childhood pet dog, who was named after Iggy Pop. The latter part (Azalea) comes from a childhood street her family still currently resides on.

Azealia Banks goes by her government name, and also is not from Australia.

The incident is ironic due to Azalea and Banks' ongoing Twitter feud. But, it's not too surprising seeing that part of their names are pronounced the same.

(On a sidenote: "hip-hopper" though?)
