A few words from Gary:
We are standing at the Top 8, but there are two people with knives stuck in them, ready to fall over. 1 is from the front, a sacrifice to the gods of writing, so that someone else can move forward.
The other? The other is just waiting to find out who they are. Everyone is frantically checking to see if the fates have conspired against them - or if their work will be seen, if THEY will be seen, and deemed worthy to take one more step forward.
Which is my way of saying that there will be 2 contestants leaving us this week. So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites - and then tell others to do that same! Just remind them that it’s 1 vote per person! The closer we get to the end, the more people need to be reminded of that. :)
The poll closes Friday, July 31st at 9pm EDT. It’s the final day of the last full month of Idol’s 11th Season.
Good luck to everyone!
