Eliminations and the new topic

In the most controversial week of LJ Idol thus far in Season 3, we have our first double elimination.

The theme was mistakes, and one happened. Was it ultimately the people who missed or made the choice to miss the deadline? Was it the voters?

That history will decide.

For the moment I can tell you that the two leaving us this week are genesisdesire who showed a lot of spirit but who missed the deadline one too many times and pseudonymjones an early favorite that no one thought we would be saying goodbye to until at least the top 10. (or at least no one that I talked to, or who happens to be living inside my head.) *G*

I waited for the email from welfy to see if she had decided to use her immunity to save either one of them, but when it did not come before the vote became final, it was clear that she had decided to not use it for their benefit.

Farewell to you both! You will be missed in the competition!


The competition though, continues as we move on to the new topic!

We're still waiting on the results of the Topsy Turvey but that's no reason not to give you the jump start you need to avoid needing to use that power!!

This week's topic is no surprise to anyone with a calendar:

The topic is The One I Love.

Maybe you want to write a love not to your SO, or your friend, or your pet, or yourself... I don't know, I just work here! You no doubt know who or what it is that you love!! *G*

Now go and write about it!!!

Your deadline is Friday Feb 16th at 1 pm EST Remember to link your entries back to this post.

This week is another double elimination and of course anyone missing a second week in a row will be removed automatically as a "quit".

Have fun, and good luck.

results and GREEN ROOM

The power of the TOPSY TURVEY GOES TO (drum roll please) heykatie who won by a pretty slim margin.

Which means she will be the one who will have the power to overturn any poll - flipping it upside down and bringing the mighty low and raising up those not so mighty in the way of active friends list numbers.

Whenever she wants to use it, all she needs to do is email me at clauderainsrm@gmail.com before the vote is finalized to let me know of her intent. (such as "if person A is still in last, I want to use it.. or if person B is in first..." "I want to use it this round, no matter what")

Congratulatons. This is the greatest amount of power ever given to one contestant. Use it wisely.

Green Room stuff:

So how about those results??

Does anyone have any questions about how voting works? I think onyxblue1 explained the difference between check boxes and circles in LJ voting (something I thought everyone knew, I do it on purpose to make sure people can vote for as many people as they want to support), but you can never be too sure.

Anyone you want to pimp out?

Um... I don't know, what do YOU want to talk about??
