Results - Week 18 Last Chance

There was just one chance to get back into the competition. 6 people entered. Only 3 were coming out.

Of course, being Idol, that of course means that something went wrong with that plan. :D

So I asked Cynthia for advice.

More on that in a moment.

Because for now, I have to say goodbye to a couple awesome writers, and people. I can't believe we are losing you so early. But then again, I guess this isn't exactly "early", it's just earlier than I thought you would be going. Especially for a second time.

Goodbye, and thank you for everything to


Which means that it is congratulations to me_sonrei and xlovebecomesher

But there is still the matter of the other two competitors, and what advice Cynthia gave me.

I explained the situation. Her response? "Make them fight it out!"

"Really? OK. I will..."

"Wait... explain that to me again."

and so I did. Once we went over it one more time she changed her mind and said that I should let them both through.

So, I am taking the advice of the better nature of my wife, and not the hammer of justice version. :)

Congratulations to favoritebean and marlawentmad. You have made it back into the competition!

Topic - Week 19

There's a line in a song that was obsessed with for awhile. Let's be honest, there are a lot of lines in a lot of different songs.

But this is the only one that is the topic for this week.

Because it's really at this moment in time, maybe more than it usually is.

The topic is

"I can't get calm"

The deadline to link your entry back to this thread is Sunday, April 19th at 7pm EDT.

Have fun!

Work Room - Week 19

The results are in: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1127105.html and Second Chance is officially closed. There are no more chances.

Just you and me, until there is only one person left. Hint: That person will be me.

One of Top 25 left standing will become the next LJ Idol.

I'm excited, and intrigued, to find out who it is going to be!

I have some theories... Some hopes... Some fears (OK, maybe not "fears"... unless you think I'm talking about you, and in that case, absolutely some fears) about how this is all going to turn out.


Until we get to that point though, we still have to go week to week.

Where are you at with the new topic? https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1127378.html
