Green Room - Week 7 - Day 3

Some days it’s like getting a dog into it’s kennel to go to the vet. Other days, it’s more like asking Rand Paul what he thinks about the use of drones. But one of the things that I love about Idol is that there are no shortages of answers on “how to be successful”. Everyone has a sure-fire way, because everyone has an opinion of what they personally like to see.

When you get those ideas in the same arena with each other, it’s always interesting to see where the common ground is, and where they bump up against each other.

Looking at, to grab an example, the top 4 or 5 from each season - you tend to see 4 or 5 different paths there. Some folks have been commenting on every entry from every other contestant, others have been off doing other things, preferring to just let their entry speak for them. Some have been rewarded for one thing, and when someone else tries the exact same thing, they end up pilloried!

It’s like the old “fiction vs non-fiction” or “pimping vs not pimping”.. there are going to be people on every possible side of every single issue. Which is a wonderful thing. That conflict that arises as a result of it, and the discussions that happen because of the tension is where actual growth tends to occur. Maybe someone will say something that sticks in your head and makes you think a little differently about something. Or maybe they will just solidify your view on how *you* want to play, what you want from your Idol experience!

That’s the beauty of it! It’s not like “everyone is right”, it’s “Only Gary is right. Everyone else is wrong, and most likely a hippie foreigner in need of a good kicking"!
