Can anyone help checking my work?

I have been checking my code and it seems correct to me, but it is not working. The prompt dialog box is not showing up...where have I been wrong?

var correctAnswer = 0;
var bandsQuestion = [
  ['Which band plays Revolution?', 'the beatles'],
  ['Which band plays Dark side of the moon?', 'pink floyd'],
  ['Which band plays Dymo?', 'verdena'],
  ['Which band plays Catartica?', 'marlene kuntz']

function print(message) {

for ( var i = 0; i < bandsQuestion.lenght; i += 1) {
 var guess = prompt(bandsQuestion[i][0]);
    if (guess.toLowerCase() === bandsQuestion[i][1]) {
      correctAnswer += 1;
    } else {
      alert('Bummer! Try again with next question.');

print('You got ' + correctAnswer + ' correct guess(es).');

I've added some code formatting to your post, to ensure that everything shows up correctly and to add fancy syntax highlighting. You can do this using the following markdown:

Looks like you just have a little typo.

for ( var i = 0; i < bandsQuestion.lenght; i += 1) // should be length

I believe that's the only issue, runs fine for me after fixing that. Nice job! Happy coding! :)
