Green Room - Week 22 - Day 1

I'm still not completely over the shock of last night: https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1134549.html

Which isn't the say "I wanted other people to go.". it's closer to "with their reputations and number of weeks survived, having them both go out in the same week is pretty remarkable and unexpected!"

Then again, this is Season 11 and 2020. Who knows what is going to happen next!

100 Weeks

"Don't forget to announce that"
"I won't"
"Seriously, I won't. It's not like I'm going to get distracted by a worldwide pandemic or anything"

If you've been involved in LJ Idol for any length of time, you know just how long a week is, and how difficult it can be to survive one at times.

Hitting that 100 mark is a big deal.

Two people hitting the 100 mark is an even bigger deal, and of course them hitting that mark several weeks back, well, that's just an honest mistake that I overlooked it. But I was calculating how close several contestants were to the 200 mark, and the Luna, and noticed, there were two contestants marked in red - which is what I do to draw my attention to their numbers. I thought they had a good chance of crossing that 100 week threshold. Sure enough, they did, with 111 and 107 weeks under their belts.

Both have undergone quite a bit since they first showed up - I know at least one of them probably wouldn't recognize themselves if I introduced the them now to old version. :)

I'm just really happy, and proud, to be able to say that Idol was a part of their journey.

Congratulations to karmasoup and mac_arthur_park! And welcome to the 100 Weeks club!
