Green Room - Week 24 - Day 6

I missed a couple birthdays yesterday, so Happy Birthday to adpaz and to crucibelle!!! (former Idol contestant and a "friend of Idol")

I hope you both had a wonderful day.


Just as a reminder, spread the word to any and all Season 5 participants who might have missed the original announcement. Their vote is what will be deciding who goes on to the next step of the competition:


It's really strange to think about how close we are to the end of the season. Which means there aren't very many Green Rooms left. (Between seasons 4 and 5 I did bring in an intern who made posts every once in awhile. There has been some talk of doing that again. But I haven't made up my mind. If there is an interest I will. If not, I won't.)

Some people like them.

Others could care less.

I base my interest in posting them on usage. Pre-season 3 they weren't every day because people didn't have a lot to say to each other. (and there weren't many people involved).

Once the season 3 explosion came, they became the cyber watering hole - and somehow in Season 4 that became the cyber endless buffet!*G* (And yes, that was kind of weird when that started!)

This season has been rather quiet as a whole Green Room wise. (at least compared to the previous two) But it's been interesting to watch as you've made it your own and put a season five spin on things. What trends will become part of the the "Green Room Lore"? *shrugs* Who knows. I guess whatever you decide to keep!


So, how has your week been going so far?


Happy VERY BELATED to the point that it's more of an Unbirthday celebration to angelic_mystic!

Immunity - Week 24

I was going to write more about this, but then I had to answer email/sent confirmations and ran out of time!*g*

So I'll get right to the good stuff.

boxsofrain had a rough decision to make. She had to give immunity to a fellow contestant for the week. She kept me updated as to her thoughts and I was able to ask some questions over the last couple of days and I think I got a fairly candid look at her thought process.

So I know how difficult the decision really was.

But she did eventually make one.

The contestant safe from the vote, and immediately joining the Top 8 is

*drum roll*




I'm sure he has already realized it - but I'm sure most people haven't.

A special congratulations to superhappytime for becoming the FIRST CONTESTANT to ever make the Top 10 twice. Not just the first two seasons in a row, but the first to do it *at all*!

(There are a couple other contestants poised to potentially do it as well - but thanks to the immunity he has now gotten there *FIRST*.)
