Good work everybody, the results were extremely close. The plan for Round 2 shall be announced shortly, so brace yourselves.
But wait, there's more! Although not all of you are moving to Round 2, you all have earned a reward for your valiant efforts. For proving your strength in battle, you will receive a 'Veteran Code' from us (presumably through Flickr Mail, if you have an account) which you can use in the next Song of Ages contest, should you choose to participate. When you redeem the code, you shall be allowed to choose your Round 1 song one full day before everyone else. The three of you have received legit battle scars from this quarrel and therefore deserve to boast about your experience.
So if you have a Flickr account, please link it here, or let me know how I should contact you to give you said code. Good work everyone, and prepare to soon face the bloody terror of Round 2... Permalink
