Green Room - Week 28 - Day 7

Today is the last day for people to get in their votes for Contestant Only voting. So, if you are one of those slackers, you need to get on it! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/570851.html

This is actually the first time in, well, I believe EVER that I ended up assembling my own actual list of where people would fall under “Gary Only Voting”, as opposed to just having it in my head.

While I was definitely pleased by the number of “yes” votes I had, there was quite a few signs of burn-out that I saw in even the strongest pieces, and some people that I think missed the mark. (Although it’s “missed the mark” compared to what I know they can do/when put side by side. They are still good pieces, amazingly enough) Some of those are still doing well in the voting (it’s not over yet), to which I have to say that my tastes have never entirely matched those of the voting public, regardless of who that public is…. I think it’s time for Gary Only Voting to become a “thing”! :P

(OK, probably not. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t continue to scare you with it!)

In a case of real life and Idol schedule matching up well, I have made a bit of adjustment to said schedule – to include something that’s never happened before. Some will like it – others will be really annoyed. Which means it’s just like every other thing that’s ever happened in Idol! ;)

All I can say now is that it’s coming in a couple of weeks. So those of you left standing at the end of this round, well… you might want to hold onto the handrail.
