It's the last topic of Second Chance Idol!

Half the remaining contestants will be joining the Home Game, and the other half will emerge to fight another day in the ranks of the main competition!

The final topic is

Open Topic

For those unfamiliar, and open topic means you can literally write anything you want. YOU decide. Bring your A-game though, because this is the "most important" week of Second Chance, the final one.

The deadline to link your entries back to this thread is Sunday, April 2nd at 8pm EDT

Have fun!

Second Chance results posts hurt even more than the regular eliminations do. Because these are people who went through that, and who are trying to get another shot. And when the results are filled with contestants that I've gotten to know over the years (two of them I've actually spent time with in person)... yeah, that's never a fun post to have to make.

But "have to make it" is what it comes down to. It's why we are here. Only a handful of people are going to make it out of Second Chance, and at the end of the day, only one person is going to win Season 10 of LJ Idol!

Which means that there will be eliminations, and all of them are going to be sad.

So, might as well rip that bandaid off instead of just talking about it...

Leaving us from Second Chance, and hopefully joining us in the Home Game, are

I'd say that my stomach hurts writing that. But I'm not sure that has anything to do with the results. ;)

Thank you so much for coming out this season and helping to make it special!

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:

The Week 3 poll of Second Chance Idol is here.

They are operating without a safety net with one goal in mind - getting back into the game! From what I’ve seen, I think those who survive this are going be stronger than ever when they eventually get back into the main competition.

Did I say “eventually”? I meant that there is a max of two more weeks for Second Chance. It’s getting down to the wire.

5 contestants are going to be leaving us this week. That’s a third of the field.

So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites!

The poll closes Tuesday, March 28th at 9pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

[Poll #2065143]

It's Week 3 of Second Chance, as the field is narrowing and the time to get into the main competition is getting closer.

There's only one way to get to that point though, and it's the same path as this particular topic:

Getting to Carnegie Hall

Post your entries to this thread by Thurs, March 23rd at 8pm EDT

Have fun!

If you haven't figured out that polls in Season 10 are going to be decided by only a couple votes, you haven't been paying attention.

This week in Second Chance was no exception to that rule. 3 veterans and 1 newbie are leaving us this week.

Goodbye to

Thank you so much for coming out this season, and I hope that we will continue to see you around, rooting for your favorites, and participating in the Home Game!

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:

The road to get back into the competition is going to be full of surprises, and this week was no exception. Before we even get to the poll, we already are saying goodbye to some old friends and a promising newbie.

Goodbye to [livejournal.com profile] aniron_iorhael, [livejournal.com profile] danceypants04, [livejournal.com profile] n3m3sis43 and [livejournal.com profile] talon

Thank you for coming out for another shot, and I hope we will continue to see you around, and in the Home Game!

As for the rest of you - we will be losing 4 contestants this week, as things intensify!

So make sure to read, comment and vote for your favorites, to continue on their quest! And, of course, tell your friends to do the same!

The poll closes Sunday, March 19th at 7pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:

When you get a second chance in life, that’s when you have to grab ahold and not let go of it.

This is your Second Chance at LJ Idol, so hold on tight over the next couple of weeks.

We’ve gathered folks who were interested in getting another shot at making a run at it. Unfortunately, there were some folks who didn’t get an entry in, even with the deadline being extended.

Which means, before we even post the poll, it’s time to say goodbye to [livejournal.com profile] cheapxdate, [livejournal.com profile] grail76, [livejournal.com profile] kindabrisk, and [livejournal.com profile] yuniebaby

I’m so glad that you came out this season! I hope we will see you in the Home Game!

As for the rest of the pack, we will be losing 3 contestants from their ranks. Each week will continue to shrink the ranks, until it is time for the survivors to re-enter the main competition!

At that point, joy will ring across the land - or terror. One of those things will ring across the land and all shall rejoice…. Some will rejoice… maybe someone could be vaguely pleased… ;)
The poll closes Friday, March 10th at 9pm EST

Good luck to everyone!

Good evening!

The Second Chance Idol sign-up sheet is "officially closed", but I have decided to unofficially still accept people until the Week 1 deadline. Mostly because I forgot to give one piece of crucial information, something that no one actually asked me, which is why I forgot to say it.

Unlike previous years, this Second Chance is *just the people who sign up*. If you are eliminated from the main competition, you *are eliminated* and will (hopefully) join the ranks of the Home Game.

It's going to be a pre-determined amount of weeks, and whoever is left standing at the end of it will join the main competition. No revolving door. No strategic decisions on if to advance or not into the main competition during the course of it. No byes. Just a short fight, followed by joining the long struggle.

With that in mind, if people want to sign up http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/981280.html we will continue to accept them until the deadline for the Topic 1 entry, listed below.


As for the topic itself, there really could have been only one choice for this. To me at any rate.

This is your shot at a comeback. This is your shot at redemption.

Which is why your topic is

Not Throwing Away My Shot

Post the links to your entries (and only those, comments should go to the daily Green Room or the Work Room http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/985477.html) in this thread.

The deadline to link your entries here is Monday, March 6th at 7pm EST!

Have fun!

A few words from [livejournal.com profile] clauderainsrm:

It’s time for another batch of polls! Yay!!! Or maybe that wasn’t today’s good news. I seem to recall there was something else, but this seems pretty darn good at the moment.

Or perhaps that’s just the sound of hearts breaking due to those who missed this week’s deadline. There are some well known and loved folks on this list. Which makes me wonder if someone is has blackmail pictures of their competitors and is taking them out a few at a time!

Leaving us this week - before the poll goes up are: [livejournal.com profile] _rabidwombat_ , [livejournal.com profile] dreamwriteremmy , [livejournal.com profile] florencestoker, [livejournal.com profile] notodette and [livejournal.com profile] witchdollie.

There was even one person who let me know that, because of this “Real Life” thing, that he wouldn’t be able to continue on - [livejournal.com profile] impoetry

Goodbye to all of you. You will most definitely be missed.

On top of that, we also had a someone miss the deadline, who will be filling one of those spots in Second Chance Idol automatically. That would be [livejournal.com profile] streetnights. Hopefully we will see you back on form next week!

As for the rest of you, things are once again divided into three polls.

The first is the “Sudden Death” tribe, comprised of those who were saved by being in a tie in a recent week. Given that they need a little extra push, in either direction, giving them the spotlight of the first poll that you see seems appropriate.

The second poll is the main competition.

And the third are those playing for their lives in this competition - Second Chance Idol. Once you are eliminated from that, it’s over.

The Sudden Death tribe will be losing two contestants this week.
The main competition will lose nine
and Second Chance will lose two more.

The polls close Thursday, June 6th at 9pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

You Only Live Twice
Sand and Stars

You have the same deadline: Monday, May 27th at 9pm EDT

Have fun!

The pressure is on in Second Chance Idol.

Time-tables are pushed up, and there is certain doom hanging over your head over step of the way.

But really,

There is no hurry

The deadline to link your entries back to this thread is Wednesday, Feb 6th at 9 EST

Have fun!

It wouldn't be Idol if there wasn't a close match between talented writers, that ended up coming down to 1 vote. That's exactly what happened this time.

A single vote separated the block of people joining the ranks of the main competition next week, and two others from being eliminated. So, hopefully everyone who wanted to vote was able to get to the polls! You never know when that one last vote is going to come into play!

I'll handle the bad news first, so I can at least end on a high note.

Those leaving Second Chance Idol, and I hope, joining the Home Game are:

[livejournal.com profile] 04summer_rain04
[livejournal.com profile] barrelofrain
[livejournal.com profile] bewize
[livejournal.com profile] decision_virtue
[livejournal.com profile] kittychair
[livejournal.com profile] mymisguided
[livejournal.com profile] teenagewitch

Thank you so much to all of you for coming out for Second Chance Idol. Especially those of you doing it for the first time! I adore my veterans, but it's always nice to see new faces.
I hope that you stick around and continue to support your favorites. Because, you never know what could happen!

Now, for the good news - those 7 who are moving forward, joining the competition as of Week 19. Congratulations to

[livejournal.com profile] ____hejira
[livejournal.com profile] _messy
[livejournal.com profile] dizzydog
[livejournal.com profile] magicmarmot
[livejournal.com profile] marjory
[livejournal.com profile] robina1984
[livejournal.com profile] zalad

What I said, above, definitely applies to you as well! It's always nice to see old friends and new faces! Congratulations!

Ties ended up having a huge impacted on the results this week. Fewer people moved up, and fewer were eliminated as a result.

There was even a blunder on my part, by posting the wrong date to decide if you wanted to move, which resulted in [livejournal.com profile] barrelofrain actually coming back into SCI, starting next week.

So somewhere in this situation, there are some actual results. Both the good, and the bad.

Those leaving us this week are:
[livejournal.com profile] erica_crawford
[livejournal.com profile] i_love_freddie
[livejournal.com profile] mr_know_body
[livejournal.com profile] not_hothead_yet
[livejournal.com profile] oxymoron67

Which is a pretty darn serious list of folks to be leaving. They certainly helped set the SCI bar high over these past couple of weeks.
I hope we will continue to see them in the Home Game.

As for the good news, we also have people who have the option of moving up into the main competition. They have until the deadline for the next SCI topic to send me a message letting me know their decision.
There is only one more week left in SCI, so the stakes will be higher than ever.

Those moving up are:

[livejournal.com profile] ceiphiedknight
[livejournal.com profile] lrig_rorrim
[livejournal.com profile] magicmarmot
[livejournal.com profile] medleymisty
[livejournal.com profile] ravenshrinkery
[livejournal.com profile] solstice_singer
[livejournal.com profile] talonkarrde88 - who has once again opted to stay in SCI.

It's Week 3 of Second Chance Idol.

Some people have moved forward into the main competition. Others have been eliminated.

But there is still a lot of talent in this dwindling pool, still more than enough that deserves a

Second Look.

The deadline to link your entry back to this thread is Thursday March 1st at 9pm EST If you need any extra guidance, the Work Room is always a good place to start: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/535520.html

Have fun!

Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. I'm posting the first topic for Second Chance Idol now.

I've also extended the deadline to sign up until this entry is due. Which means there is pretty much no excuse for anyone who wants to participate in SCI to miss it! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/527683.html

The topic: What's Missing?

Hopefully you Second Chancers can come up with something interesting for that!

The deadline to link your entries back to this thread is Thursday, Feb 16th at 8pm EST.

Have fun!

(a reminder, this post is for Second Chance Idol contestants to link their entries only. Anything else needs to go to the Green or Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/528374.html)
