It was announced that AKB48's Itano Tomomi will hold a dance contest "Itano Tomomi '1%' Dance Trial 2013" for her 4th solo single "1%" that is set for release on June 12th.
Participants post their dance video on YouTube, using the 90 seconds sample video, "1% (Dance Trial Edit)", as reference. It can be the exact copy of the sample, or you can add your own arrangement. Anyone can participate in the dance contest regardless of age, sex, or dancing experience, and it can also be both solo or a group effort.
Whoever passes the primary selection, will go on to the final selection which will be held in Tokyo, and they will choose winners for "A prize" (opportunity to appear on the MV for Itano's next solo work + prize money 500,000 yen), "B prize" (appearances on the media, such as dance magazines), and "C prize" (autographed goods). The winner of each prize will also be able to co-star with Itano in "CLUV Tomo. ~DANCE TRIAL 2013 Edition~", an event to be held for people who purchase the single.
Itano commented, "Since it's a cool tune, there will be many ways to arrange it. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's dance. Please apply for it."
