From Perfume Offical:
To commemorate the release of new studio album, Perfume dance contest is confirmed!
This marks our 4th dance contest since the first contest was held in 2011. Perfume has been passionately involved with all judgment processes since day one and this time, we have decided to go back to our roots and go with one simple category of ultimate copy!
Assignment song is “TOKYO GIRL” from our 7th studio album to be released in August.
Final round will be held in Tokyo on August 25, 2018 (Sat)!
From dancers who participated in the past contests to all new challengers, we are looking forward to seeing many participants from around the world!

This is so exciting! :D The previous three contests were fabulous and showed just how much awesome talent there was out there. Looking forward to it all hugely!

They say "we have decided to go back to our roots and go with one simple category of ultimate copy...." But with two competitions apparently! LOL :D

I hope they will also "go back to our roots" and stream the final live, as they did with the first two contests, but not the third. It was such absorbing viewing and the Perfume ladies connected very emotionally with some of the contestants. I'm guessing the judging panel at the final will include MIKIKO as before and I wonder if Seki-san will also be a panel member, like previously. :)

And the submitted videos from the earlier rounds were great fun too. :D

Good luck to everyone who is planning to be a contestant! :D

Wow! I was away most of last week and have only just noticed that the Round One winners were announced. All the winning videos are included here:
http://www.perfume-web.jp/cam/odoreTOKYOGIRL/en/

Just one or two contestants that I recognise. Congratulations to all the successful dancers and good luck in Round Two!

Daito and his friends do not seem to be among the winners, but I guess the rules probably rule them out. :D

The second round winners have been annonced and their second round videos (24 in total) may be seen here, together with the details of the final:
http://www.perfume-web.jp/cam/odoreTOKYOGIRL/en/ :D

The final is on Saturday 25th August and will be LIVE STREAMED, starting at 4 pm JP time! :yahoo:

The event will be hosted by Harisenbon, the comedy duo of which A~chan's great friend Haruna is part.

Tickets won't be on sale for the event, but PTA members "will have a chance to attend".

I am so delighted and so excited that the final will again be LIVE-STREAMED, as it was for the first two contests, but not the last one. :yahoo:

Well, that was great fun! And more than three hours, I think. The introduction and the performances took up about two hours, then there was quite a lengthy interval during which Perfume MV's were shown, and then the results section took about 45 minutes, which included performances by Perfume with the Grand Prix winners of the set pieces for both the main "Tokyo Girl" competition and the Panasonic "Everyday" competion. Brilliant! Both sets of Grand Prix Winners received a Panasonic washing machine - very Rock and Roll! :D

The standard of performance by all contestants was very high. The winners of the Panasonic competition were a father and son, the son I would guess about 8 or 9 - apologies to him, if that's not quite right! The winners of the "Tokyo Girl" competition were three girls called "Fragrance", :) , who were also cosplaying as Perfume.

Nocchi had reacted particularly delightedly and cutely when one of the contestants, Eve Melly from England, had said "I think Nocchi is very sexy". Although it was spoken in English, Madame Nocchilda didn't seem to need a translation, naturally! :) After they had performed, all the contestants had been interviewed by Haruna, with Perfume joining in from the judging desk.

Unlike in the previously streamed dance contest finals, Perfume were the sole judges. No Mikiko or Seki-san, this time. Perfume seemed to be very much in their comfort zone throughout. A very enjoyable event. Looking forward to the next one! :D
