LJ Idol Predictions?

Apologies to people who haven't been following Idol, but I've been writing up my review of the week, and I thought it would be neat to see who people's predictions are for the Final Four Idol contestants.

theafaye was mentioning in her journal that a while ago, we discussed the Top 10 but now that we're down to 13, many if not most of the people mentioned as a Top 10 are gone.

Now that we have a Lucky 13, who do you think will make the Final Four? You can write down your predictions, or your Fantasy Final Four, or both!

If you don't remember who's left, it's

alexpgp
beautyofgrey
fourzoas
intrepia
gratefuladdict
java_fiend
mstrobel
notbatman
rattsu

Let's see... my prediction is...

beautyofgrey
notbatman
rattsu
and theafaye

My personal wishlist... I'm not sure that I'm ready to share that one in public yet.

Thank you! Always a pleasant surprise to see my name pop up on these things.

My own, and this is prediction only, not (necessarily) favorites:

beautyofgrey
rattsu
gratefuladdict
alexpgp

And thank you, btw! Whether or not I'm an actual favorite. :)

Oh balls, I did not mean to post that anonymously! XD

I was just thinking that I wished someone would start a good meta discussion!

I would predict:

beautyofgrey
rattsu
teaberryblue

And I think the fourth spot is a wild card. Many of the remaining contestants don't pimp, and rely on the benevolence of the voters (talon, java_fiend, me), and others do ask for votes without hardcore campaigning. (Then of course, there's one person who has their FRIENDS posting vote requests in their own journals...) It's hard to say where that will shake out, although I think it'll be easier to guess after these two polls close.

(I -really- wish I knew who you were talking about!)

My fantasy final four would be:

beautyofgrey
gratefuladdict
talon
teaberryblue

(And even narrowing it down in that wish list sort of way is really tough!!)

Oh, and I am very tickled to be on your fantasy list!

I can't participate in this and I'll tell you why. Every single person I've ever named as being in the running for winning has dropped out (joeymichaels, oneonthefence and markmade). Every single person I intersected with dropped out/sacrificed (oberonia, tigrkittn, hexkitten). So I'm not risking putting the curse on someone by naming names. Yes, it could be a good way of getting rid of my strongest competition, but I'm not that sneaky :oP

As long as we're on the subject of meta, can I bring up another discussion point?

I haven't seen any Idol rec posts yet. I figure there's a good chance many people haven't read all the entries yet. Or maybe they aren't sure whether to rec this time around, since one of the polls is community-only?

We're definitely at a stage in the game where being rec'ed by your peers can make a huge difference. I'm wondering if the habitual rec list posters are consciously opting not to exert that influence this time, or if it's just a coincidence.

I used to rec very regularly. And now I'm just lazy! For me, it's a point of burnout where I just used up so much energy for Idol that I need to turn to other aspects of my life now. Maybe after a few weeks off, a recovery period, I will get back to doing some rec posts.

Although it's also a longer voting period, so I think that we're more likely to see them popping up late tonight or some time tomorrow. Or possibly even after immunity has been determined. It seems that they usually show up the day before the polls close, though, from what I tend to see.

I will predict:

gratefuladdict
notbatman
rattsu
teaberryblue

And while I appreciate the love above, I'll be surprised to last the week.

You have been one of my unwavering picks for the final for a really long time now!

I was just looking here again and it's so weird and crazy to see such a tiny, tiny group of us left, and then to have my own name right smack in the middle of it. Does anyone else have that? Where you actually want to click on the name just to make sure it really is your own and not your eyes playing tricks on you? XD

I sound stupid, I'll go to sleep now ;)

No, I get it. And you (along with a couple other people) were in my "wildcard" slot that I gave to alexpgp

This is really, really, really tough. Hmmmmm....

I can't pick just 4 really.... so I won't... here's my Top-5... lol... (in no particular order)

beautyofgrey
gratefuladdict
theafaye
rattsu
teaberryblue

Personally, that's the Final 5 I see... and I mean no disrespect to anybody because there are some absolutely fantastic writers still in this thing. But in the end, there can be only 1, right?





It was hard for me, too!

Fortunately I didn't feel obliged to keep myself on the list (because that seems kinda douchey) which makes it easier since I know I am frequently a frontrunner and it sort of opens up a spot!

The thing is that I think there are some obvious favorites but I am still waiting to be surprised!

Thank you for including me <3

I have to say that if there is another contestant-only vote, that it's highly likely that some of the front-runner names here (self included) would disappear. It has not been that long since top competitors like drjeff and onda_bianca, who had a strong fan base and were also well-supported by friends, were surprisingly eliminated.

But with only 13 of us left, almost everyone is a front-runner at this stage! I think I've seen all but four names pop up on prediction lists.

Okay... I usually don't do this but...

I predict that the final four might be:

teaberryblue
beautyofgrey
mstrobel
notbatman

I have no idea though, right now so much depend on the entry of the week, one week with problems and anybody can be gone. That's how we lost hug_machine after all.
