1) They want the variable firstName again, not the string literal "firstName".

2) You need to add a space in " rocks" otherwise it will be smushed together when you concatenate. (This seems to be the case in the first version of the code in your question but not the 2nd, not sure why).

Thanks guys, just amazing , it worked.
