She held the title of the highest vote-getter (until a few weeks ago at any rate) and yet she was vulnerable quite a few times during the course of the game. Folks could have taken her out - and didn't. Why? Because people liked her. They respected her and her talent.
And boy is she talented! She tells an amazing story...
and she continues to trend of a woman with a user name in the last half of the alphabet winning (although the first non-"t" and I don't happen to know how old she is, so I don't know about the "woman in her 30's" bit - she may have broken that one.)
Ladies and Gentlemen - boys and girls - children of all ages, people standing in line waiting for the new Harry Potter book and assorted riff-riff it is with great pleasure that I give you
THE OFFICAL WINNER OF SEASON 3 OF LJ IDOL
Congratulations to a woman who defied the odds and proved that you *can* play a straight up, hard fought game for 6 months without flying under the radar and never giving up an inch of integrity!
Well, that's it for this season.
It's been an amazing season, filled with some really big personalities and some breath-taking writing. Thank you to all who participated, and a special thanks to everyone who came out to vote, to support your favorites, and especially who took part in our Green Room talk. I know that there were a lot of really good friendships formed during the course of this, and I'm looking forward to seeing how they continue to grow - and how the contestants themselves continue to grow now that the season has ended.
Stick around for the Wrap Party, scheduled to start soon... but until next time...
