The 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' host picks three audience members to sing 'actual passages' from E. L. James' erotic book, the winner of which is determined by audience applause.
The much talked-about "Fifty Shades of Grey" novel has inspired a segment on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon". In an episode aired Wednesday, June 20, Jimmy Fallon hosted a "50 Shades of Grey" karaoke competition which "combines the beautiful music of The Roots with the morally deprived words" of E. L. James and her erotic novel.
The comedian invited three guys from audience and would award the winner with a karaoke set. Each of them could sing "actual passages" from the book "50 Shades of Grey" however they wanted, but they couldn't just read them.
The first contestant, Michael, sang a song titled "Hot Fudge Brownie Sex", the second man, Joe, performed "I Found Some Baby Oil", while the last one, Dave, belted out "W***e's Drawers (Nipple Clamp Remix)" with the house band backing them. The winner was determined by the audience applause and based on the applause meter, it's Dave who sang it the best.
"Fifty Shades of Grey" is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes featuring elements of BDSM. Its two sequels "Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed" have been released as well. The trilogy set the record as the fastest-selling paperback of all time, surpassing the "Harry Potter" series.
Universal Pictures and Focus Features have nabbed the movie rights to the novels. No director and actors have been tapped for the project, but "The Vampire Diaries" star Ian Somerhalder once said he "absolutely would be up for that."
