It had been announced on the officcial AKB0048 homepage a few days ago, that the stage performance that would happen on June 4th, SC0124 was going to be a one-shot re-boot of Team 00's first stage, with all members performing. The stage part had just ended, and all the members were gathered on stage for the final MC - which would be the revelation of the Preliminary Results.
The screen behind them showed a grid with two columns with 12 rows each and above each colum two words were written; 'Senbatsu' and 'Undergirls'. This, of course, meant that the next single would be a 12nin, and the main B-side would also be a 12nin.
Then, a window appeared in the top right corner of the screen, which showed a live recording of Hikari. "Good day, everyone," she said. "Before any of these results are revealed, please keep in mind that they are in no way set. They may change completely. Now, without further ado; Here are the 12 members who ranked 24th to 13th, the Undergirls:"
