I need help figuring this out. On the <audio> tag, add the controls attribute.

I'm trying to put in the right answer for this question, but nothing's happening. Am I doing something wrong?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <title>HTML Video and Audio</title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="normalize.css">
    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Nunito:400,300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css">
  </head>
  <body>

    <h1>HTML Video and Audio</h1>

    <div class="wrapper">

      <!-- Add your code below this line -->
             <audio controls>
            <source src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge-audio.mp3" type="audio/mp3">
      </audio>

    </div>

Hi Khaleel

The code you have written is correct and will work, but unfortunately there is two ways to write this and in challenges you have to follow the steps quite literally or it won't accept it as correct (sooo frustrating I've also done this too many times!).

So it should be

<audio controls src="http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/html-video-and-audio/bridge-audio.mp3" type="audio/mp3">
      </audio>
