As part of the lead-up to Madame Tussauds Hong
Kong’s unveiling of Madonna’s wax figure, the attraction is
calling all Hong Kong locals to compete in an online ‘dance-off’
with the Queen of Pop.
Competitors have until December 11, 2009, to
submit their own dance moves on video to Madame Tussauds Hong
Kong, set to Celebration, the first single off the Material Girl’s
recent greatest hits album also titled Celebration: particularly
apt as the competition will be played out through the festive
Participants will be judged and shortlisted via
open online voting on YouTube and by representatives of Madame
Tussauds Hong Kong. Five finalists from the YouTube competition
will then be invited to compete in-person for the ultimate prize.
They will be judged by a panel consisting of popular local
celebrities, dance experts and representatives from prize sponsors
and Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.
General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong and
Shanghai, Bret Pidgeon said, “At a time when we are all in the
mood to celebrate, this dance competition is really going to kick
the festivities up a notch. While Madonna has made some of the
best dance videos in history, I am sure some of our local dancers
could really give her a run for her money. Set to a song that
would make even the most sedentary of us want to get up and dance,
I can’t wait to see the outcome.”
There will be a total of three winners which
will be announced at the official unveiling of Madonna’s latest
figure on December 17, 2009.
