Saying "it's brutal" would be accurate, but maybe not quite up to par with the reality of the situation. But then again, it was going to be like this regardless of what happened. After all, we have been together a long time at this point, and it's only going to get more difficult to say goodbye as time continues to pass.
The one good thing to come from it is that there was a tie in Tribe 1, which means that we will be losing one less than originally planned.
The bad news, of course, is that we still need to say goodbye to an absolutely fantastic group of writers, newbie and veteran.
Leaving us this week are:
From Tribe 1
From Tribe 2
Thank you to all of you, for coming out this season, and helping to shape it. I hope we will continue to see you in the Home Game, and supporting your favorites, to continue to leave your mark on this season, and Idol itself.
