Idol: Exhibit A

Green Room - Week 14 - Day 3

In honor of ANZAC Day, I will be landing all of you off at the wrong location and let you fight it out for several months before deciding to pull back. Then I will have Mel Gibson be in a movie about you.

Speaking of long, fruitless mistakes where you take heavy losses – today is the deadline for not only the new entries: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/645813.html but also for you to send me your votes! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/644678.html A bit of a lead has opened up, but it’s still close enough that a couple votes could make the difference in who wins the “advantage” and momentum going into this finale!

This time next week, Exhibit A will be a thing of the past! Maybe one day someone will declare a holiday to honor it!
Idol: Exhibit A

Vote - Week 14

A few words from clauderainsrm:

It’s come to this. One last poll and Exhibit A will be over.

What have we learned from all of this? How are we different than we were just a couple short months ago when we set out on this journey together?

Maybe you have the answers, or maybe it’s the questions themselves that are the most important thing. Always asking and striving to ask better ones of ourselves and those around us.

Or maybe you just like getting eliminated! I’m not sure what it is, but for whatever reason, season after season - and now into this mini-season, people seem to enjoy bashing their own heads against this particular section of internet wall, and I couldn’t be more happy about that!

Thank you to everyone for a great mini-season! And now on to the pol... wait. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. There was a matter of the Week 13 results that I promised!

For most of the time it was a tight one, but in the last 24 hours or so, one name started coming to the top a little bit more than the others.

For those who don’t know -the system is 1-4, with people ranking their selections in order. So your second favorite entry would receive 2 points, and the 4th favorite would receive 4. The contestant with the lowest overall score ends up on top. So it’s both ranking, with a little strategy thrown into the mix. As usual. ;)

People have been wondering what the “advantage” is, and why that is in quotes. It’s because I honestly don’t know - will this be an advantage? It might give them momentum and confidence. Might it be a detriment? I honestly don’t know. Heck, I don’t even like the idea of “winning a week” in a competition that’s based around lowest vote goes home! I don’t subscribe it to at all. But this is a special occasion, so why not do something a little different, even if I don’t know the ultimate impact.

Because I’ve never announced a winner of anything in a voting thread before!

The person with the best overall score for Week 13 is impoetry!

Congratulations.

Now for the vote that actually matters!

When the poll closes, 1 contestant will win, and the rest will not.

it comes down to this.

The poll closes Monday, April 29th at 9pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!
