SKE48 Announces 7th Generation Auditions
SKE48 has announced a new round of auditions to find 7th generation members. Application period starts on July 19th and ends on August 31st.
This audition will be different than previous ones in two ways. First, the karaoke-on-demand system DAM★Tomo will be used for the auditions and second the fans will decide who will become the new members!
Girls aged 11 and above (no upper age limit indicated!) who live in Japan can apply for the audition via mail, internet or DAM★Tomo. The first two audition rounds will be held as usual (1. examination of application documents, 2. interview) but in round 3 and 4 the fans will have their say. Round 3 will be a 'web voting' and the final 4th round a 'karaoke request voting'. This means that fans can go visit the LIVE DAM karaoke rooms and if they watch the clip of a candidate completely this candidate will get one point. This final round will take place at the end of 2014/start of 2015.
