Notice I said "Opportunity". Because the 5 contestants with the most votes are eligible but they don't *have* to say "Yes". They can choose to stay in LCI for now, waiting until later to come into the competition. It's definitely something to consider carefully, and there are pros and cons of either move.
Those qualifying have 24 hours from now to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know if you DO NOT want to move into the main competition just yet. If you do not email me, I will assume that you do.
Who are those lucky few who qualified in Week 1?
They are none other than:
Congratulations!! (and let me know!)
