The long awaited day had come; People had gathered into the New Tokyo Dome in order to watch the event that was about to take place. The Jyanken Taikai. People were excited, because this meant that other members than the regulars might, and likely would, end up in the Senbatsu, or even Center. After the initial, and slightly shorter, opening performances of 5 songs, the first few matches followed. These were made in rapid motion - although, the excitement wasn't dampened by that. The audience loved seeing the members dressed up in their various costumes, and the competition itself also kept the audience's spirits high.
At the end of the first few rounds, the board with all of the results was shown on the large screen.
