Before we get to the fun stuff, we of course have the usual round of business to take care of -
in this case, it's saying goodbye to two people who dropped, two people who were being mentioned as potential contenders from the ranks of the newbies: spirited_grace and beyond_my_smile. Both whom ended up getting body slammed by Real Life. That evilest of villains.
There are no bye-outs this week! Congratulations everyone!
Sometimes things work out even better than they look on paper.
When I was planning this season out, I was looking at a the idea of a week involving a variable. I wasn't sure what it should be though. Obviously, it had to be something big enough to get people's attention. A look at the calendar helped me make up my mind.
Every year there ends up being a conflict between the people who love football and the folks who think that somehow if it wasn't around that more people would love Glee. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with high school still playing out.
Tomorrow (Sunday) is the Super Bowl. The biggest day in the NFL schedule. The one for all the marbles.
I set the variable to be held on Super Bowl weekend.
I never dreamed how well it would work out.
I, in general, like you. I want to see you do well. Because that's how I am.
kithan, on a regular basis, advocates mass eliminations and for people just to leave her alone. Because that's how she is.
I am a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan. She is a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan.
It was as though the universe peeked over my shoulder to take a look my my notes.
So here's the deal. If the Steelers win - I get my way.
No one is eliminated this week and the world is a good and just place.
If the Packers win - kithan gets her way.
And it's a double elimination - the two people at the bottom of the polls will be going home - in each tribe.
It's also a "friends only" vote this week, so you need to be a member of the community in order to vote! Just to make it a little more interesting! Oh, and of course what is a week in Idol without more tribe adjustments!
The poll will close Tuesday Feb 8th at 9pm EST. If there is no elimination there may be a special surprise. If there is one, well, then we will be saying goodbye to some people.
Good luck to everyone!
