LJ Idol Winner - Season 10

In an unusual season - there is an unusual ending.

In a "back to basics" season - it came back to the old school ending...

The newbie has won it all, and with impressive numbers in the biggest turn out of the season. Hopefully some of these people will stick around to see what comes next, and throw their own hat into the a future ring!

Until then though, congratulations to all three of our finalists for making it to this point, you were absolutely amazing and any one of you would have made a fantastic addition to the winner's circle.

With that said, there is only one person who can claim the ultimate prize - our winner of Season 10 - your LJ Idol - is marlawentmad!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Thank You

The Green Room has gone dark and people are filing out to congratulate the newest winner of LJ Idol on the lawn: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1048006.html

Before we depart though, I just wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for making this season special.

I know I keep saying that, but that's because it's true.

The internet is big and you've chosen to devote your time and efforts in my little corner, to support this crazy idea I had back in 2006. You've supported it, and keep coming back to support it... and hopefully you will tell your friends and they will come back and support it next time.

Yes. There is a next time. It's probably a mini season, and I don't know if it will be here at Livejournal or somewhere else. I'm still very much conflicted about that, and have a lot of things to think about between now and then.

That's in the future though, this is right now - and right now my shriveled twisted heart is full of gratitude and love for each and every one of you who has come through these doors from that first season to this.

A special shout out to eternal_ot who has been helping Idol out as our voice on Twitter and Ello!

and to murielle who has been running our Pinterest account! I couldn't have done this without you!

If you've enjoyed this season - and want to give back, don't forget the "Tip Jar", Patreon and purchasing from our Amazon Estore. Every little bit helps justify why I'm busy hanging out on my computer! :)

Again, thank you for everything - and I'll see you soon for the next season of Idol Minor, the special season for the kids. I hope that even if you can't compete, you will come out and support the next generation of writers!

After that - well, stay tuned....
