Green Room - Week 15 - Weekend Edition

Hello there, and welcome to the last day of some of your Idol Season 10 lives. Or at least the lives as contestants, which is of course the only lives that *really* count. The only lives that have actual meaning. Those "lives" you have with family, and friends, in that "outside world" known as "reality", we all know those are meaningless and quite possibly just the result of some sort of head trauma you experienced. Idol is the only reality that matters - and that is about to have a shake-up.

How big of a shake-up? Honestly, I have no idea. I woke up to 6 more votes that I haven't "officially recorded" yet, or even looked at. BUT as of when I went to bed last night - every single contestant (who didn't have a bye) was "on the board" with votes and there was enough outstanding votes that I was waiting to get to completely change the trends and flip the results on their head. No one is "safe" right now. (Well, there are a couple people who I *think* the trends are favoring to be safe, but again, there are enough votes that I am waiting to get, and probably will in the last hour, if I know you guys and how you like to make me sweat, to completely change that!

So if you are a contestant, make sure to get your "Contestant Only" vote into me at clauderainsrm@gmail.com and everyone else needs to be voting in the poll http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1005827.html to keep your favorites in the game! I have a feeling today is going to hurt a lot. It would regardless. But I just have a feeling about it...

Since this is the last day of (some of) your Idol Season 10 lives - how are you spending it? In quiet contemplation? Are you going out to cross some things off your bucket list? Having a party?

Me? I'm spending the afternoon sharpening some blades. No reason. What's your neck size again... just curious... It must have come up at that March for Science or something, that knowing people's neck size was important...just thought I'd ask...

Results - Week 15

Good evening.

I said that tonight felt like it was going to be rough, and it is.

There were two polls, with two sets of results. The first to close was the Contestant Only voting, which was extremely close. There are 4 contestants leaving us tonight, from that poll. Literally 1 vote saved a couple people from that fate, because it tied it up, pushing the number above the predetermined threshold.

They are

oxymoron67
puppetmaker40
and yamyam_kat


There are also 2 contestants leaving us from the regular poll. Which also came down to a single-vote - it was also impacted by the Contestant Only vote in that there would have been a Write-Off, however the other person in the tie was already technically eliminated.

Which means it comes down to 2.

Goodbye to all of you, and thank you for coming out this season. I really hope we will continue to see you in the Home Game (especially our Young Idolers, I know people will be looking forward to seeing more from you!) and around in general, rooting for your favorites!

Topic - Week 16

Sometimes things sneak up on you, and you don't even know that they are here until you look around and realize it's Week 16.

Other times they are announced like a

Thunderclap

of the approaching storm that is next phase of the game!

The deadline to link your entries back to this post is Thursday, April 27th at 7pm EDT

Have fun!

Work Room - Week 16

I didn't see those results coming: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1007046.html

But I did, at least, see the Topic coming: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1007141.html

That's the one area where I knew what was occurring. ;)

Which is always useful - to have at least one aspect of life where you know what is going to happen next.

Often enough, we rarely do. Or we may *think* we do, only to have life surprise us again and again.

Sometimes it's our own writing that surprises us. Or our reaction to something, an emotional response where we weren't looking for one to happen.

As we stare down into the spirally pit of doom and despair that is the Top 50, what have you been surprised about when it comes to your own writing? (Not just for Idol, but in general.)
