Green Room - Week 43 - Day 7

The poll closes tonight at 10pm EST.

The *season* closes then.

I know I keep saying it. But I'm trying to get my head around it as much as everyone else is - maybe a little bit more, because when I envisioned this, it was going to end with a "fade to black".

Now it's more of a "see you next time!"

We've had births. We've had deaths... omg, we've had deaths. We went an entire 8 seasons plus two mini seasons with only losing one person who was a "friend of a friend" of Idol - and a mega-champion cat.

We lost three people during Season 9. One of them dying while she wrote her Idol entry. (That's not something that gets any easier with time.)

I want this season to end in a way that honors all of that. An ending where people can point to the result and say "Damn, Season 9 was something special. It was worth going through all of that".

I can say that all three finalists are incredible writers, and people. I think their entries speak for themselves about what a difficult choice this is - and really just how different each of them are!

This season *is* an ending. It is also a beginning. Like most stories.
