You don’t have much time left if you’re going to enter BP Idol. Tomorrow’s deadline is fast approaching, but CK, KG and I have been digging into the giant pile of submissions already. More than expected, you ask? Yes, perhaps a bit, with the quality all over the map. There’s been an amazing amount of work, thought, and research put in, with wildly varying results. Some people have really nailed it while others, well, they’ll get the modern equivalent of the participation ribbon.
I wish I could go into more detail, but I don’t want to give anything away. I will let you know that I’m scoring each submission on a 1-10 scale as well as making comments on each and every submission. To make my final ten, someone would need to score an 8 or better. While I don’t have any 10’s yet, I do have three 9’s. The bar is set pretty high and I can’t wait to see what KG and CK think, but even more, I can’t wait to see what you think. Just like American Idol, we’re relying on you to pick the next winner with your votes.
1’s? Oh yeah, we’ve got some 1’s too.
So if you’re considering entering, you should. What do you have to lose? Well, I guess if you can’t handle the truth or if you don’t think you meet the high standards of the competition, you can always wonder if you might have been good enough.
