|"Does Your Mother Know?" - ABBA night Slashiness!
||[Nov. 29th, 2006|12:35 am]
I've recently grown fascinated by this pairing. If anyone would like to know why then here's a transcript of the Judges' comments taken from the "ABBA night" a few weeks ago.|
Script - X Factor's ABBA Night
[Gay band Eton Rd. finish their version of "Does Your Mother Know?" by ABBA]
[Crowd cheers and screams]
SIMON: [smirking] Okay. Okay. Erm...well it was camp as a row of tents, wasn't it?
[Crowd and Eton Road laugh]
SIMON: I mean...let's be honest; if Louis couldn't get ABBA night right there's a problem.
[Crowd laughs, Louis shrugs]
LOUIS: We did! We did!
SIMON: I mean, Louis, you have a massive, unfair advantage here.
[Louis stares at Simon open mouthed]
SIMON: But, you know what guys, you know, I wouldn't say vocally it was the best thing I've ever heard, I wouldn't say the choreography was the best I've ever seen - BUT: it was a million percent better than last week.
[Crowd cheers. Simon and Louis exchange glances]
SHARON OSBOURNE I gotta tell you guys, you know that I love you anyway, and he's right, it was as camp as Christmas, and I just love you so much.
SHARON OSBOURNE But, saying all of that, you know what, you took the song, you kept the spirit of ABBA, but you made it your own, and you are just such a delight to watch, you're great performers and that's what it's about.
LOUIS: I mean, boys, I'm really proud of Eton Road tonight [Simon smirks at Sharon] The harmonies were good, it's all about having fun -
SIMON: [Speaking away from the Mic and directed at Louis] But the crew and you didn't want to pick it...
[Sharon picks up her glass of water and goes to take a sip, turning away from Simon]
LOUIS: [Turning to Simon] - AND YOU KNOW - Simon - the one thing I wanna say Simon - The song's dedicated to you - it's called does your mother know?
[A few loud guffaws in the crowd, then the whole audience bursts into laughter. Sharon chokes on her water and nearly spits it out. Camera shows the band members of Eton Road are laughing too. Simon meanwhile is leaning forward and staring at Louis with an unsettling, incredulous half-smile, while mouthing something at him. (Perhaps "You? You..?") ]
MAIN SHOW PRESENTER [Cutting in quickly] Thanks judges! We'll leave that there!
Later on it's clear that something has happened between Simon and Louis as Simon does not turn up for the after show interviews.... :P
If you want to see this scene for real, then it's on after Eton Road's performance on this Youtube video (About 2 mins 50 seconds in)
Now...who's feeling a slashy fanfic based around this scene coming on...? ;o>
And that's not all - see the Simon/Sharon kiss and a very interesting slashy comment made by Simon about Louis on this Xtra Factor video!
And finally, Simon and Louis giggling like a pair of naughty schoolboys on this audition video Just the Two of Us... If anything it shows that they get on much better than people think when not under pressure... and note the slashy song the show editors put on in the background..! XD
