The Special Power/Elimination

As of the last vote -

I'm suspending it until next elimination. We will be adding *one* spot to it.

But what you may ask happens to that special power that would be given to the person with the most votes and the person with the last - I'm giving it ALL OF THEM.

Why? Because as I said when I announced it this is a very special power.

It is the first time it has ever been used in Idol. . . but it was something that people have asked - in some cases *begged* me to implement.

rm won the most votes hands down. So she gets it.

and the tie for least votes was between:


So congratulations to all of you.

How many times have you read "NOT SO AND SO!!!!' during elimination times?
Constantly, and the people saying it always mean it too because the attachments between contestants in the trenches together become so strong.

How many times of "I wish that had been me instead of you" - not as many but still quite a few. I've gotten emails over the past few seasons asking me if they could give someone else their spot. . . and I've had to tell them no. Because that just wasn't how things worked.

This power is very straight forward (and yes, someone did actually impress me by calling it a couple days ago!)

You get the power to each bring back *1* contestant who was eliminated from this season.
There it is, pretty simple right. You think someone shouldn't have been eliminated - you bring them back.

Ah, but there's always a catch. It wouldn't be a proper Idol special power if it didn't. The power is called Sacrifice and it is just that.

You have the option to bring in a player who has been previously eliminated - but they are taking your spot. It's a switcheroo elimination style. . .

If you feel strongly enough to want to bring someone back - you can. If you don't,I really doubt that anyone is going to hold it against you for wanting to keep your spot in the game.

But for the six of you - for the first time in Idol history - that decision is now yours.

Email me your decision by tomorrow, Feb 3rd at 7pm EST. My email address, in case you don't have it handy, is
