Green Room - Week 15 - Day 14

The Sudden Death Write Off comes to a dramatic finish tonight: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1115395.html

Regardless of how it was going, I was going to call it a "dramatic finish", but wow, after looking at what's going on over there, it's going to be a dramatic finish. No one is "safe". No one is "completely out of it". (given the average amount of votes these things can generate)

Anything can, and may, happen!

This is definitely something worth doing!

So stop stockpiling toilet paper and get on over there!

LJ Idol is the one form of entertainment that is guaranteed not to spread the coronavirus!

(Unless you are using a public computer or share it with someone who has the virus... but those would be the fault of the computer, not LJ Idol itself!)

Results - Week 15 - Sudden Death Write Off

So, here's the situation -

We had someone use both their Twitter and FB account to vote. I know this because they use their name for both. :) In other words, it wasn't someone who was trying to pull off some massive fraud (for starters they only used two accounts not more.) They also voted for over half of the entries, so I also don't think they were just showing up to boost one person's totals.

Obviously I'm not going to penalize someone for an action that had nothing to do with them. But I also can't penalize someone who would be in that 2 vote margin of error - so I'm using my executive privilege to open up an additional spot. Which means that instead of just 4 - now it's 5 people are moving back into the game.

So congratulations to

and pixiebelle

and welcome back to the struggle!

Which, unfortunately, that means that 3 are leaving us - and what a 3 they are.

Absolutely amazing runs cut far too short this season, but we are also running out of runway, so that is about to happen to everyone left in the competition.

I hope we will continue to see you in the Home Game, and around Idol in general, cheering for your favorites!

Goodbye to

You will be greatly missed.

Thank you so much for coming out this season!
