The good news of all of this is that reaching the Top 21, in this season is something pretty damn incredible. I hope everyone has a full appreciation of that fact.
Everyone, except one person, is going to be leaving us in the end after all. Still, it's difficult to say goodbye. Being on the Jury, they won't be going far - but I hope they don't go very far away regardless.
This time it is a mixture of newbies, vets and of course the person who is now tied for the longest Idol run of all time.
They are leaving the competition, but they are joining the Jury and helping to determine how the rest of the season is going to go:
Thank you to all of you for a wonderful season!
