Oh, LJ, how I've missed you!!
It's so nice to see so many old friends back in the fold, and especially to see a lot of them eager to play one more time!
Seeing people mentioned, and the appearing, summoned by the power of the Internet, got me thinking. If YOU had the power to "cast" this season, bringing back some of your favorites (especially if they are folks who might not get the attention they deserve. Oh, like bettybaker or alexpgp for example. They really should be an Idol-household names) who would they be, and why?
In this scenario, they are completely flattered by your words and unable to resist the compulsion to play Idol.
For that matter, who (to the best your knowledge) HASN'T played, but needs to join in on the fun?
It's the last weekday before sign-ups begin!
