◉ What is Odottemita?”
“ODOTTEMITA” Dance Contest is based on the Japanese internet dance phenomenon that could be found under the video category “ODOTTEMITA,” where dancers (and amateurs) film themselves dancing to popular Japanese dance choreography of idols, groups,Vocaloid and Utaite music. The videos are then uploaded onto video hosts for public view. “ODOTTEMITA,” literary means “I tried dancing it,” and now for the dancers outside of Japan, the “Danced_It” video category is also used. Checkout the phenomenon on Tumblr HERE
Based on this method, contestants may film themselves dancing to a popular Japanese song with existing choreography, and all submissions are taken in as uploaded online video format. The videos will be hosted in a tab of J-POP SUMMIT FACEBOOK page. Here, all viewers could watch the videos, interact, and follow the submission updates. The chosen finalists will come to compete on main stage at the J-POP SUMMIT 2015. This year’s judges will decide who will take home the grand prize for two categories – SOLO and GROUP! (Awarded separately.)
