Idol: Exhibit A

Green Room - Week 3 - Day 7

I got the call last night from Ratzinger asking if I could take over the job.

I can’t say it was entirely unexpected, after all, I knew that I was on the short list last time around. Apparently, the work that I have done with Idol has been noticed and they wanted to speed up the process of getting me on board. So Ratzinger is resigning at the end of the month, and I will be officially announced soon after that!

It’s going to be a lot of fun! I’ve already been writing out some practice decrees, so that I will be prepared to get the ball rolling, in the right direction on Day 1! And by “right direction”, I of course mean activating the Vatican Monkey Army for immediate deployment!

The transition from a “free world” to “under my boot” will be startling for some people I’m sure. But hopefully they won’t last long anyway…

Until then though – we have a poll! Or, as I like to call it “practice for global domination”! http://www.livejournal.com/poll/?id=1895227

So make sure to get out there and read, comment and vote for your favorites!

Results - Week 3

I said that we would be eliminating the bottom six contestants this round. But I funny thing happened on the way to the end of the poll: we had a tie for the last spot!

So, instead of just eliminating both of them, I am going to put them through their paces. So, everywordiwrite and shadowwolf13, you have a special TIE-BREAKER TASK!

You have to meet BOTH the Second Chance and Main Competition deadlines. It’s If you both can do it, you both stay in. If one falls, the other stays in. If you both miss one of the deadlines, you are eliminated from the main competition and will be a part of the Second Chance crowd!

I’m not sure if that’s the “Good News” or the “Bad News”.

Which is kind of what the rest of the announcement is, after all - it’s bad that they have been eliminated from the main competition, but as part of Second Chance Idol, they will still be around and have a shot at getting back into the action!

So, goodbye (for now) to:
