Katy Perry Announces Dance Contest for 'Swish Swish' Music Video

Katy Perry Announces Dance Contest for 'Swish Swish' Music Video:

Katy Perry is on the hunt for fresh talent to feature in her "Swish Swish" music video and has announced a new contest to find it.

Perry has teamed with DanceOn to launch the #SwishSwishChallenge, asking dancers to post a video showing their best choreography to the Nicki Minaj-featuring Witness single via YouTube, Instagram or Musical.ly with the tags #SwishSwishChallenge and @DanceOn @KatyPerry.

Submissions will be accepted until July 12 at 11:59 p.m., with the official "Swish Swish" video set to film later in the month. Auditions are open to applicants of ages 13 and older who reside in the United States.

Of course the pop star is no stranger to plucking dance talent off the web. Earlier this year, 15-year-old Russell "The Backpack Kid" Horning stole the show during her performance of "Swish Swish" on Saturday Night Live after she found him online.

Perry announced the contest in a video to fans, saying she would pick her "favorite" dancer to for the "Swish Swish" role. Watch it here:
