Goooood eeeevening!
Gooood eeeevening!
Whoa...
Am I seeing double?
No, Slim, you are not! So prepare for trouble!
'Cos we're shaking up the format Big Time!
That's right, you, my friends, have a once in a lifetime opportunity....
...to double your chance of victory!
What? No way!
Tell them how that's absolutely possible, Slim!
It's easy, by submitting two songs instead of one!
Of course! Twice as many songs are twice as likely to win! The math checks out.
Sure does! And don't you worry, you can pick any two songs you like...
...as long as they're bangers...
...and submit them to the Double A Side Round!
Do that before the 10th of October...
That's right, the double ten!
...and the prize is as good as yours!
And with that, we wish you a lovely evening...
...hope to see you at the voting ceremony...
...and don't forget to reserve you tickets for the awards gala!
Goodbye!
Goodbye
Bye now!
Buh-bye!

Ladies and gentlemen, just a quick announcement for you, the contest starts in roughly a day or so
So don't forget to submit your songs before then, otherwise you'll have no chance of winning the prize
Which is, as you know, double the normal amount, so I wouldn't miss it if I were you.
That's all for now, see you at the show!

Goood evening!
Goooooooooooooood Eeeeeeeeeeevening
All right, that's enough Slim
But I'm so excited, you wanna know why?
I can hazard a guess, but do tell me.
Because it's time for the voting round!
That's right, we've got some amazing songs in store for you!
And you lovely people in the audience have the final say on which one of them receives the grand prize!
Which, as you know, is double the normal amount, so be sure to make your votes count...
Or rather, be sure to make us count your votes...
...by sending them in before the 18th of October!
Especially if you have a horse in this race and want that sweet victory!
And now, the moment you've been waiting for!
Let's hear it!

We are sorry to interrupt, but we must make a quick announcement
Yes, indeed, could the owner of the 1968 DeTomaso Mangusta please return to their fabulous vehicle? That would be tremendous
You're blocking a fire hydrant
We wouldn't harp, but it's a code violation if we don't rectify this as soon as possible
Oh and one more thing, the polls close in about a day!
Don't forget to send in your votes
Thank you for your attention, now back to the show

Good evening and welcome to the awards ceremony!
Unfortunately, this will be our last time together
But let's ignore that little raincloud on this amaaaazing night...
...because the results have been unexpectedly close!
Yes, so close in fact, that we have no less than three ties this evening!
And one of them is a triple-tie to boot!
I would've put on all my ties this evening, but my stylist objected. Can you believe that?
That is a loss for all of us, Slim. Anyway, moving on
Yes, starting from the bottom with our first tie for.... which place would that be?
I have no idea, but regardless, Kinda I Want 2AO3 submitted by commodorejohn...
...and Feral Hearts sent in by LingEarth received six points each. Give them a round of applause!
*applause*
Ahead of them is the only song not tied with anyone else, let's hear it for...
...Cannonball entered by ratammer with ten points!
*more applause*
And now for the real treat of this evening, the triple tie you've been waiting for!
Germs nominated by commodorejohn....
...Rotterdam (Or Anywhere) submitted by ratammer...
... and Magical World sent in by LingEarth....
...all finished with exactly twelve points.
Woooo! *even more applause*
And that leaves us with one final tie for first place!
That's right
Although the keener audience members probably already know them, so let's not drag this out...
The winning entries are Words and Guitar and Modernial submitted by somitomi!
*slightly awkward applause*
With thirteen points, they barely got ahead of the competition though
It was a close thing for sure
Now unfortunately the results have subverted our plans for this evening somewhat.
Yes, we had another award in store for the player with the highest combined score, but under the circumstances that feels superfluous
So instead we'll just say thank you to everyone for participating
And now it is time to end! Good night!
Bye-bye, bye now!

Okay! :mrgreen:

Next topic is people's names! Could be the title of the song, could be referenced prominently in the lyrics, whatever you like!

Going to give 24 hours for any final submissions as I'll have time then to post them. Also wouldn't hurt to have one or two more ;)
