Green Room - Week 18 - Weekend Edition

The polls close tonight: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1125307.html

So make sure to get your votes in. This will determine who will be facing off for the final spots in the main competition, as Second Chance comes to an end.


Once you have your votes take care of, I received some cool news. Literally I had LJ open to start writing a Green Room and my Facebook Messenger started going off. A former Idol contestant has a new book out: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086ZZ83YQ/

You can pre-order the Kindle edition now for release in May.


My niece (aka young cousin in law) has some really good friends (twin sisters) who used to live down the street. They pretty much grew up together. The twins were always over at the house so I got to know them as well.

They lost their grandfather a few days ago to COVID19. I keep hearing people say that they don't know of anyone who has died. I guess I'm collecting all of them... because I know quite a few folks who have lost someone since the pandemic started.

Be smart. Be careful. Be safe out there.
The only danger to you should be from the polls causing you stress and anxiety!

There are 6 contestants.

There are only 3 spots.

It's a Sudden Death Write Off, which means 2 things:
- It's Open Topic, so you can write anything you want.
- You have a limited time to do so. Because tomorrow is Easter, I am going to make this a two day challenge.

The 6 contestants:

Taking a look at these names, yeah, things just got real. Losing any of them is going to be rough. Seeing them face off... wow...
Have fun!
