With Exhibit B, knowing the twists and turns that I was throwing at people - I wasn't sure how things were going to go. But I knew that I could count on not being able to predict it! True enough, that certainly was the case.
There are two "Idol firsts" in this finale.
We have a tie... which ISN'T the first time that it's happened. (See: Season 2) But what is a first is that there is no run-off, I declared that I would honor the voters. If THEY decided that they wanted two winners, that is what would happen.
There were moments when I wondered if it was going to occur... or if someone would pull a trigger in the last few minutes and put one of them over the top. It almost happened. But then the counter-balance came and evened everything back up again!
The Exhibits were set up as a fundraiser for my engagement. I can't think of a more perfect ending to something about two people coming together than to have two winners!!
Congratulations to lrig_rorrim and the_lettersea: Winners of LJ IDOL: EXHIBIT B!!
Which, yes, that's the second "first"... a guy has "broken the glass ceiling" of Idol for the very first time!!!
Two amazing writers, and one amazing ending to the mini-season!!
Pop the corks and get out there on the dance floor to celebrate!
