LJ Idol - Best of Season Five - Week Five

Best of Week 5

Open Topic. (Anything the contestants choose to write about)



Of 143 contestants, these were the 54 I liked best. This week especially, people took creative approaches that I found refreshing and enjoyable. I think this was one of the strongest weeks of the competition.

Again, I only included entries I could read. If they were friend-locked or the journals have been deleted, I could not include them. I apologize if you have trouble viewing any of the friend-locked links below.
