A few words from clauderainsrm:
Coming into this week, and knowing these three writers, I knew that we were going to be in for a very diverse and exciting group of entries. What I didn’t realize was that it would be a diverse, exciting, with a twist of meta, group of entries! ;)
We had a stat breakdown before of where these contestants fit into the big picture of “Idol winners”, but when you take a look at this shockingly tiny poll, one thing jumps out at you about the nature of Season 8 - the beginning of the alphabet got slaughtered! :)
With all the talk about pimping going on, people have been asking me what I think about it, and how I think it should be handled. My suggestion is what it has been all along, strongly encourage people to read all the entries. There are only three of them. If someone honestly can’t read them and pick their favorite, you don’t want their vote anyway.
This isn’t 300 entries. Or 100. Or even 10. It’s 3 of them.
I know, you can’t stand over them watching their every movement. But you can send a strong message to them about it. If they care enough to come out and vote for you, if they believe enough in your work, they should care enough to listen to what you have to say.
These three entries are definitely worth reading. And hey, maybe the meta aspects will encourage people to check out what this crazy ride is all about!
After a comment I saw today I went and checked the dates - and sure enough, tomorrow Season 8 will enter into a tie with Season 6 for being the longest season in Idol history. On Saturday, it will pass it! It’s no wonder people are falling down! :)
All good things though, they come to an end. Season 8 is no exception.
But there’s still a little life in this party! So go check out our Top 3, and help decide who is going to the FINALE!!
The contestant with the entry receiving the fewest votes will be eliminated. The other two will be going to the big show!
The poll closes Monday, August 27th at 9pm EDT
Good luck to everyone!
