Green Room - Week 36 - Day 3

Today is a busy day in Idol-land, so I'll cut right to business:

We had the results of the Quick Fire last night: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/834094.html

and today is the deadline to get in your entry in! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/832879.html

How do you know if you have or not? Because if you haven't - you are being shamed!!! :) http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/834503.html


Tonight is also the deadline for getting in your votes for the Spirit of LJ Idol, Season 9. So far, 6 of the eligible 11 contestants have turned in their ballots. http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/832594.html

For any of those remaining voters - I'm sure you are planning on getting in your votes, and are just thinking about how you want to rank everyone to best reflect your feelings.

If, for some reason, you don't vote - I'll have to turn it over to my dog.

This morning, I asked Foxy who she wanted to vote for - and showed her the list of candidates.

Apparently, the person remaining who best represents what this season has been about is a bunch of lion cubs playing. (on one of her favorite shows: Big Cat Diary)

She was *very* passionate about that choice. It had all of her attention, and she excitedly grabbed her rope and swung it back and forth in between barks.

Now, clearly, a bunch of lion cubs playing is a great choice and will represent Idol well.

But if it's not YOUR choice - you should probably get your ballot in!

What shows make *you* grab your rope and excitedly bark at the screen?

Vote - Week 36

A few words from clauderainsrm:

Here we are, in the final weeks of our journey. Yeah, I know that we still have 11 contestants left, but considering we started this nearly a year ago, the time remaining is only a blip.

By the time this poll closes, we will have a new Spirit of LJ Idol and perhaps a direction for how this end game is going to play out.

In the meantime - what we have is 11 entries, from 11 talented writers.

Or 10 talented writers and that hack. You know the one I’m talking about. ;) *cue paranoia*

Seriously though, you are in for a treat this week. But then again, if you’ve been reading entries for any length of time - you already know that!

Read all 11 entries. Comment on them if you have something to say - and how could you *not* have a reaction to them??? Vote for your favorites!

Tell a friend or three to do the same!

That’s how this works.

Will be losing the bottom two this week, and yes, you may have noticed that I was merciful and dissolved the Redemption tribe after one week instead of the usual two. You can send your thanks in the form of comments in the next Green Room. :)

The poll closes Monday, Feb 9th at 9pm EST

Good luck to everyone!

Spirit of LJ Idol

There was a clear winner this season.

Sure, there were a couple other people who *could* have won - and perhaps the two folks abstaining could have made a difference. But you know what? I don't think they would have. Because I factored this out a couple different ways, just to see what would have happened, and each time, it came up with the same winner.

Some were closer than other methods.

But it was always the same person who came out on top.

That says something. That tells me that with all of the differences between folks left in the competition - there is one person who was toward the top half of almost every single ballot. Heck, there were some people who weren't eligible to vote who sent in ballots - so I checked those too! Guess what? Same result.

People love her - and think that she is someone who embodies what is great about this season, and have named her the person who is going to carry the banner forward.

The prize is an icon - and a selection of powers to choose from. I've emailed those to her. I will let you know what she decides.

But until then, all that is left is to match an user name to this and end the suspense:

Then again, it may not actually be that big of a surprise!

Congratulations to kickthehobbit, the Spirit of Season 9!!
