It's not as extreme as the Shanghai rules, but of course there is already backlash online about it. Mostly because it's online and that's what people online do. :)
People have been wondering what sort of practices we will have in Idol going forward. It's pretty straight forward. All contestants will be required to wear masks. Full masks. Not surgical or cloth masks, full on Halloween masks. If none is available, you can use a paper bag and just cut out some holes in it.
We will also be practicing social distancing. From me. All contestants will be required to stay the hell off my lawn.
There will also be glass walls installed between each contestant. These may, from time to time, be filled with deadly gas. It's not personal. The process will be "completely random."
There will also be a new topic posted: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1134549.html
and a Work Room: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1134595.html
Those links will change every week.
These changes will be for the best. If "the best" is defined as "for me."
