They say “It comes in threes” and apparently “they” are right.
We lost 3 writers in Last Chance Idol before the poll officially opened http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/798994.html and we are losing 3 more from the main competition due to missing the deadline.
26 weeks into this process can be grueling and take out even the most dedicated writers. All it takes is one bad week, one misstep, and you can be falling off the edge of that cliff.
Which is what has happened to our friends agirlnamedluna, barrelofrain and waltzmatildah
They will most definitely be missed, although I hope we will continue to see them “playing the Home Game” and cheering on their favorites as this season kicks into it’s next phase.
The main competition is divided between two polls: The Redemption Tribe and the main tribe. The Redemption is made up of those who were nearly eliminated, but ended up in the tie. They were “saved” by circumstance have been given an extra spotlight to give them a better chance to “redeem” themselves when they return to the thick of things. Of course, given their smaller numbers, they are also in a greater danger of being eliminated! Nothing is without a price.
The main tribe is the rest of the competition.
We will be losing the 2 contestants with the lowest vote totals from Redemption and the 3 lowest from the main competition.
So it should be interesting!
The poll closes Thursday, Oct 30th at 10pm EDT - make sure to get out there ASAP to read, comment and vote for your favorites!
Good luck to everyone!
