My code always skip 1 line

Hi! I followed the instructions but my code always skip 1 line. So there are songs in lis 1, 3, 5, etc until 12. And lis 2, 4, 6, etc are blank.

var playList = [
  'I Did It My Way',
  'Respect',
  'Imagine',
  'Born to Run',
  'Louie Louie',
  'Maybellene'
];

function print(message) {
  document.write(message);
}

function printList(list) {
  var listHTML = '<ol>';

  for(var i = 0; i < list.length; i+= 1) {
   listHTML += '<li>' + list[i] + '<li>';
  }

  listHTML += '</ol>';
  print(listHTML);

}

printList(playList);

Hi there,

I think the error is because you have 2 opening <li> instead of an opening and closing one.

listHTML += '<li>' + list[i] + '<li>';

Should be this:

listHTML += '<li>' + list[i] + '</li>';
