I have some good news and some bad news. Since the former is very much tied into the latter, I'll go with the bad news first.
Real life has claimed a couple more victims. Every great climb has people who fall out the closer you get to the summit, and Idol is no exception. Today we are saying goodbye to one amazing writer ecosopher and one annoying hack cemetaria who was never quite the newbie she played on television. I hope there will be a reveal on that latter, since it's one of those "was I really good enough???" stories where it's exactly what I said would be the case - they are as successful in an alternate identity as they were in the oneand they should really just listen to me in the first place! But some people want to see for themselves... and then let "real life" get to them!! *kicks her again*
At least one of them will be missed. *kicks the other*
I promised some good news was coming out of this - and here it is, due to those two leaving - CONGRATULATIONS, you are now officially the TOP 50 of LJ IDOL SEASON 8!
The Top 50 icons should be ready for rolling out by the end of this poll for anyone who wants them.
So, while you are celebrating - we are still getting down to the business of the actual poll, and losing a couple more from the collective talent pool.
The bottom two vote-getters from the poll will be eliminated. Anyone wishing to use a special power needs to let me know up to one hour before the poll closes. porn_this_way opted to use her Bye power this week, for those keeping track of such things at home.
There are a lot of good entries out there this week, as usual - so go forth - read, comment and vote for your favorites! And tell a friend to check them out as well!
The poll will close April 26th at 9pm EDT
Good luck to everyone!
Note: Due to technical difficulties, karmasoup's entry was moved to http://karmasoup.livejournal.com/32141.html
My evil plan to exclude her was exposed, so I guess that I should go ahead and post a link to the missing post, so people can at least read it! http://tigrkittn.livejournal.com/200533.html. (sorry about that)
