Green Room - Week 23 - Day 1

Did last night qualify as a "Game Changer"? http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/932150.html

It certainly opened up the possibilities of "what is going to happen/who is going to win". Or maybe those doors were already wide open, but not everyone was paying close enough attention.

I can honestly say that now I have it narrowed down to 6 possible winners. ;)

***

The new topic thread is up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/932438.html
and so is the new Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/932806.html

You have a couple days longer than usual to write - but you also have one more entry than you have been writing, and a lot more pressure!

***

How are you doing right now? Excited about the Final 6? Any predictions on how the rest of this mini-season is going to play out?

Based on who I've seen showing up over the last couple of weeks, and what they tend to like - I have some *theories* about how the season will play out.

But that's all they are - theories. Especially because the "who shows up" could change at any time. Someone could have an "off week" and go out. Someone else could have an exceptional week. (which has definitely been happening, so that's always a possibility)

This is really anyone's game to lose.

Reasons why the Top 10 might not win:

One of those things is not like the others (2 people, in different ways)
Precedent/inside baseball reasons (2 people or 2 1/2)
Not actually playing to win (1 person or 1/2)
Danger of self-destruct (3 people)
Playing too safe/under the radar (2 people)

Re: another update
Anyone who's NOT in danger of self-destructing as you mercilessly crank the pressure up to INFINITY deserves to win this game hands down. You are a cruel taskmaster!

Re: another update
To be fair, this was "from the list I wrote at the time". Not "where they are right now".

Re: another update
Then clearly we need a new list!

Are you saying you can't wait for 16 entries? ;)

I've never really been a patient person, but yeah... I can wait. :)

Re: another update
Hmmm, so was I the "Not actually playing to win" or the "Inside baseball reasons?"

I supposed I could have been "Playing too safe," but the reality is that I will usually write whatever I think will make the prompt work, and if the prompts aren't working for ME... that does not always go well. :O

The final week, though, not "too safe."

Re: another update
You were "under the radar" because (at the time) I didn't think anyone had you in their sights. Which does qualify as "safe", but as you said, you definitely broke out of that mode in your final week.

"Inside baseball" was basically my way of saying "People might not want to see anyone win a second season/mini-season". :)

Well hey, I didn't even know what 'inside baseball' meant!

Re: another update
Seriously.

Apparently I should have said "Inside Hockey"

(I *know* she's been to a football game. But maybe she escaped "America's past time" by being a damn foreigner)

Re: another update
Ah, I can see the point about repeat winners, for those who might have opinions about that. But it was too cryptic a description for me to decipher. ;)

Reasons Why the Top Six Might Win:

Shamelessly Awesome Writing (6 people)
Probably Nicer Than the Rest of Us (1 person)
Epic Friend/Family Support (2 people)
Refreshing Point of View (1 person)
Pure Unadulterated Bravery + Heart (1 person)
A+ Idol Community Member (4 people)

Now I'll try figuring out who is "nicer than the rest of us". I don't know any nice people in Idol! ;)
