Round 6: Rock/Heavy Metal


A/N: Hey everyone! Sorry this chapter took so long, but it’s really hard to find appropriate heavy metal songs! That’s why I changed it to rock/heavy metal, as I had an evil idea, which will be revealed very soon! *cackles evilly*

Thanks to everyone who reviews, it means a lot to me!
Disclaimer: I own nothing, no characters, no songs, no Idol TV shows, nothing.

The lights of Hogwarts Idol stage lit up once again to reveal SDC and Erin pounding their guitars on the ground and head-banging furiously to Black Sabbath. They were both imitating rock stars with torn tank tops, ripped jeans and spiky wristbands. When the song finished, they both whacked their guitars violently on the judges’ table, accidentally taking out Lee Jordan, who had been about to sign them up to his new record company.
‘Oops, our bad,’ SDC and Erin said, looking guiltily at the stretcher carrying Lee off to the Hospital Wing. ‘Anyways, moving on, welcome to Hogwarts Idol for round six: heavy metal!’ SDC screamed to the wildly applauding crowd. ‘Due to Lee’s rather unfortunate accident-’Erin and SDC smirked at each other ‘-we have a guest judge tonight, Oliver Wood, Gryffindor Quidditch captain!’ The female population of the crowd began screaming hysterically as the hot Keeper strode onto the stage and plonked himself down in Lee’s empty chair, eyeing the guitars wearily.

SDC and Erin stared at him for a moment, then released what was happening, and hastily continued, ‘Thankfully, due to last week’s horrific and disturbing performance, Snape has left the competition.’ This news was greeted by an uproarious cheer from the crowd. ‘And now, our first Idol performing tonight is Hermione!’ SDC and Erin were about to go and flirt with Oliver Wood when Snape, foaming at the mouth with rage, pushed past Hermione and stormed onto the stage. Thankfully, he had replaced SDC’s Britney outfit with his usual cloak and robes. ‘I told you I’d have my revenge!’ he ranted maniacally. ‘Play the CD!’ he shouted to the sound booth. He smiled smugly to himself when the first ‘bam bam’ of the Crazy Frog song played from the giant speakers. ‘NOOOOO!!!!!!! Get it off! Get it off!’ screamed SDC and Erin, sinking to their knees and clutching at their ears to try and stop the horrible sound entering their ear drums. Charmed Ravenclaw stood up and started chucking pineapples at Snape, but missed and they hit SDC instead, giving her a golf ball sized bruise on the side of her head. ‘Security!’ Erin cried repeatedly, but no one came. For unexplained reasons, the Crazy Frog put the security trolls to sleep. SDC found herself wishing it had the same effect on her.

‘I’ll stop him!’ a voice from the crowd cried. SDC and Erin looked up hopefully, dodging Charmed Ravenclaw’s pineapples. Wild Werewolf sprung forward and howled at the moon which was conveniently painted on the ceiling. She transformed to a wolf and charged at Snape, bowling him over. SDC managed to scramble forward on her knees and yank the cord out of the speakers, ceasing the Crazy Frog, silence echoed around the hall.
Meanwhile, Wild Werewolf had Snape in a headlock, and was gnashing her long, pointed teeth viciously. ‘Ok, ok. I won’t come back, I promise!’ Snape was whimpering, while a wet patch was forming in his trousers. ‘Good!’ Wild Werewolf said, releasing him. Snape scampered away faster than a speeding bullet.

‘How can we ever repay you?’ Erin asked Wild Werewolf. ‘Don’t worry, I have a part in Hogwarts Idol that’s all the thanks I need!’ she replied. ‘Well, okay then. Thank you!’ SDC said. She turned back to the audience, who were gradually emerging from under their seats; looking around to be sure the crazy Snape and his stupid frog were really gone. ‘Sorry for that slight…er….disturbance, let’s begin tonight’s competition with Hermione!’

This time Hermione came onstage, looking not in the least disgruntled by what had just happened. She also looked like a rock star, all in black with a red bandana tied around her forehead. Her song began with a huge rock intro, guitars thrashed, drums pounded, lights flared and Hermione used her wand to destroy various instruments without even breaking a nail. SDC and Erin smiled as they watched the audience start to bang their heads in time to the beat, the place was ROCKIN’, but the audience looked around, confused, as the music stopped and she began to sing:

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are


The audience cheered a little uncertainly. Charmed Ravenclaw threw another pineapple for the sake of it, “Twinkle that Hermione!” she shouted.
‘As much I love that song, Hermione, it’s not exactly heavy metal…, not even rock, it’s barely even music’ SDC pointed out.

Hermione stared, devastated, as the judges held up 3 point score cards. “What? That’s not possible! It’s inconceivable!” Hermione wailed and burst into tears. It had been a fantastic performance, but not a great choice of song. Hermione ran offstage, still bawling her eyes out. ‘We’re really sorry about that, Hermione, but maybe somebody will do worse than you!’ Erin called after her in an almost convincing voice. The other contestants glared at her. ‘Uh, yeah, anyway, next up is Draco! Oh, no…’she muttered the last part so that he wouldn’t hear her. Draco came out with a bright yellow guitar and he was dressed like a starfish. SDC sighed and blocked her ears, while Erin resorted to hiding behind the speakers. Head banging furiously, Draco began:

Are you ready, Hogwarts?
‘Never!’ cried the audience.
I said, are you ready?
‘We told you, NO!’
“Uh, oh well…” with a full on feedback power chord blazing from his axe, Draco began to chant,
”Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
Spongebob Squarepants!
Absorbent & yellow & as porous is he!
Spongebob Squarepants!
If nautical nonsense be something you wish
Spongebob Squarepants!
Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish
Spongebob Squarepants!”

Draco thrashed into his guitar, tearing out a powerful solo, the crowd was beginning to enjoy this, as he leaped and strutted about the stage – “Could Draco really be a rock god?” they wondered.
He growled out the chorus,
Spongebob Squarepants
Spongebob Squarepants
Spongebob Squarepants
Spongebob Squarepants!”

He finished his song, chest heaving and fingers bleeding on the fret board, sweat was rolling off him, he raised his guitar above his head and began smashing it to pieces against the stage. The security trolls carefully approached and guided him from the stage – the audience looked on, this was the most astonishing performance they’d seen yet. “Draco! Omigod! Draco! I love you! I’m your biggest fan!” Firebolt15892 jumped out from the crowd and started to hug Draco. “Yeah, biggest and only fan,” SDC whispered to Erin, they doubled over in laughter. Charmed Ravenclaw stood up once again and threw pineapples at a startled looking Draco and an extremely happy Firebolt15892.
Firebolt15892 caught a pineapple and threw it back at Charmed Ravenclaw, hitting her smack in the face. ‘Food fight!’ Fred and George yelled, as Charmed Ravenclaw toppled like a tree. Before they could conjure more food, SDC’s voice boomed over the hall. ‘Will all those standing up and throwing pineapples please sit down and refrain from throwing large yellow fruit until after the show. I repeat: please refrain from throwing pineapples until after the show! Thank you.’
Taking advantage of the pause, a stunned and confused Charmed Ravenclaw, retaliated. She threw more pineapples, which hit SDC and Erin. ‘We’ll have you banned!’ Erin bellowed. Charmed Ravenclaw stopped immediately and dropped obediently into her seat.
As the audience gradually settled down, the judges grudgingly gave Draco 8 points, causing Hermione to clutch Ron and sob loudly on his shoulder.
“Moving on!” SDC sighed. “Here’s Ginny!” Draco looked terrified, he was trapped onstage again with Ginny closing in fast! Ginny strode into stage, dressed up like a member of Green Day. Erin smiled delightedly.
Ginny faced Draco and begin to sing……….
”Don't wanna be a Slytherin idiot.
Don't want Spongebob to win this competition
And can you see the food thrown from the audience?
At the loser who calls himself a death eater.

Welcome to a new kind of Idol.
All across Hogwarts castle
Nothing can ever be okay.
Hopeless talents dream of tomorrow
When they try to impress the judges once again…
Convincing them to vote for you.”

Ginny broke into an amazing instrumental on her bass guitar, while the audience cheered crazily and the Slytherins all glared at Ginny. Draco stormed off stage before Ginny could get another swing at him. When she was finished, it took SDC several minutes to regain control of the crowd by herself, as Erin was madly screaming ‘GREEN DAY ROCKS!!!!’ at the top of her voice. ‘Silencio!’ SDC cried and waved her wand at the crowd. They continued to shout, although their mouths were making no sound. The judges held up 9 point score cards, and Ginny smiled, bowed, and walked offstage. When SDC thought it was safe to remove the silencing spell, she began to speak again. ‘That was a great performance!’ Erin continued ‘Our last contestant tonight, M.C. Gonagall!’ Emerald_Eyes and Dumbledore cheered especially hard as M.C. Gonagall came onstage. Just as rocking as ever, M.C. Gonagall rapped her heavy metal song choice:
Say your prayers little one
Don't forget, my son
To include everyone
Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes
Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight
Exit: light *the lights cut dramatically*
Enter: night *Streams of sparks erupted from SDC and Erin’s wands*
Take my hand
Off to Never Never Land
Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of Snow White
Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite…ouch!

A stray, insane house elf that was lost on the set came up and bit M.C. Gonagall hard on the leg. ‘What was that for, yo?’ she demanded, but the house elf had already tottered off towards the audience. Despite the rather random end to her song, M.C. Gonagall scored an 8 from both Oliver Wood and Roxychick_89, and a 10 (as always) from Dumbledore. The audience cheered and waved their hands in the air, and unexpectedly, M.C. Gonagall leapt into the crowd and was passed around the hall on the hands of many adoring students. She managed to stay well clear of the Slytherins, however, who were in a lethal rage at having been insulted by Ginny.
‘Come back next time when we announce the top three idols!’ Erin said, before yelling ‘Take it away, Ginny!’ and the hosts head banged with the rest of Hogwarts as Ginny played them out. All of the Slytherins followed Draco out of the Great Hall, looking sulky and angry. With a contemptuous look at SDC and Erin, Snape hurried off after them to reveal his next plan to sabotage the competition.
