Green Room - Week 27 - Day 6

I was going to post a Green Room earlier, but I was busy playing with FaceApp. Oh those zany new features and their wacky uses!

It's really fun for the whole family!

As is school starting back up! For us, that's tomorrow!!!

***

Something else that is fun for the whole family is our poll this week http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1038986.html

So make sure you are making your voice heard!

The Jury most certainly has been so far.

I was thinking about this a few days ago, going over the Winner stats for regular seasons:

Women: 9
Men: 0

US residents: 8
International: 1

None of them further west than Central time zone at the time of the finale.

No kids: 5
Kids: 4

White (or "white presenting", I know at least two have *some* native) 9
Not White: 0

I think it says more about the make-up of Livejournal over the years than anything specific about Idol or the Idol audience. But I still find it interesting.

Also of interest, because we were talking about how long it was since Season 8 started...

Veterans: 2
Newbies: 7

But because of the mini seasons that have occurred in between Season 8 and now, and mini seasons have been dominated by veterans, the last time a newbie won Idol was 2012!!!

Looking at who is left, we have some chances to changing some of these numbers. It will be interesting to see which one(s) end up being broken.

It was. We discussed it a few GRs ago.

...and I know, RIGHT?!?!?

It *ended* in 2012. It started in 2011.

Now I feel old. I need to go sit down... ;)

Statistics are fascinating! These are intriguing. I agree that they seem to be about LiveJournal but I think they also reflect the Idol audience, especially after the Top 10.

That's definitely some merit to that.

The Livejournal Sisterhood is strong! ;)

Well, I am happy to see that being not-white and on the west coast, my odds of making to the finale are approximately zero. Thanks, Gary! ;)

There have been non-white West coasters in the finale before. You know two West Coasters who have done it, and one that fits both of those categories! They just have never *won*.

Maybe you will break that ceiling. Or someone will break a different one.

I misread the post, then, or misunderstood what you meant by "finale". :) I was wondering, though, since I thought that two of the women from Season 9 were on the west coast in the final three-way showdown...anyway.

I highly doubt I will be breaking any barriers. I'm amazed I've come this far, considering what my life has been like of late -- but I'll take what I can get.
