You get them, and you either rise to the challenge, or decide that you need to fold.
Some people can do it, and some can’t. It doesn’t say anything other than certain personality types adapt better to pressure than others - and some people thrive under stress that would completely collapse other people.
Over the years, I’ve seen a few people’s tempers (and better judgments) snap under the weight of “Hell Week”. I’ve also seen far more end up finding something pretty darn special about themselves, and their fellow competitors through the process.
I hope to see that happen again this season with it. All *insert evil laughs here*, I wouldn’t be giving anyone something that I didn’t have the full faith that they can handle, and be pleasantly surprised at the results once they get the chance step back from it.
For whatever it’s worth, I’m proud of what you have done - and the progress on the hill you are currently climbing! You deserve to be remembered among the “best of the best”, and I hope this will be a part of that Idol legacy!
