This is going to be a tough one to write, as there is so much to bloody say. More so because of the entire dancing genre community being at a loss (including Mr Jackson wink), as to if this achievement was even obtainable. After what feels like forever trying to figure it all out, I'll now share my findings for unlocking this bad boy. I won't list the challenges, as Boots has already done so in his guide. The experienced players will be able to skip alot of this guide, although I would appreciate the read after all I went through working it out lol. I need to cover it all though, so on we go...

38 challenges, 8 Co-op and 30 single player.

36 of the challenges CAN be done solo... with only 2 requiring an actual second dancer.

Only challenge numbers 37 & 38 require two dancers.

All challenges can and will appear on Alien difficulty, but not all can be completed on the lower difficulties (can't earn enough followers etc) - so... always dance on Alien.

All solo challenges can be issued with two players on screen, so if you're still needing the co-op stuff, leave the dummy player (see below) on screen during menu navigation.

If you're offered a challenge, but fail it, you can restart before the results screen appears. Don't panic if you miss it though... as that challenge will appear again very soon as long as you don't get changed smile

My final 12 challenges were all issued on Alien, all at the Climax venue, and all with the same song.

For doing the co-op stuff solo, read this paragraph:

Always navigate the menus with a vacuum cleaner or something similar on screen, as co-op challenges won't appear when only one player is present. I can't stress enough though, to REMOVE the second dummy player from the play space after the song has started to load. It really doesn't matter if it finds you as player one or two at this point, but start dancing with only one player in the space, and then bring the dummy back when the results screen appears at the end. Your followers will be classed as co-op. You'll notice also that as long as the dummy did not score a single point, the ranks do not get averaged either, and it counts your rank as the co-op rank. Leaving the dummy in the play space during the song will result in points being scored by it (insane I know), and it HALVES the amount of followers you can earn. Don't ask me why, but that's what happens. On the result screen, your Rank S and the vacuums Rank D will equal a co-op rank B. Learn when to remove, and when to replace it, so that you can solo these co-op parts smile

I need to be clear that I was well into my game, before figuring any of this out. I had the achievement for dancing to all songs (on easy, only step 1), and I was very close to the 323 dances achievement also. I honestly can't comment on wether or not these achievements affect any challenges I had been issued, so I suggest anyone going for the 1000G, covers all other achievements before going for this one.

I tried the method of bouncing around from venue to venue, song to song, and difficulty to difficulty. None of it worked. By this time, I only had 12 or so challenges remaining, so it is entirely possible that the before mentioned 'bouncing' is somewhat required for some challenges, but not for the guys and gals who are stuck at the top of the leaderboard trying to finish this game up, as I was.

I then went on a crusade, gathering Followers in the hope that it would trigger them to appear. I danced for what felt like a lifetime... going from 78,000 Followers to well over 200,000... without a single challenge appearing. I think its safe to assume that the final challenges are not Follower related either lol.

In an act of pure desperation, I decided to go the wardrobe, and dress myself like Will.I.Am... and hey... start song... challenge appeared. And a Will.I.Am one too! Could it be?

I then dressed myself as close to any of the outfits I saw in game, trying to get the challenges issued. After that went kind of ok, I ran out of outfits to copy cry. I ended up on Google Images... seeking anything online that resembled anything in game. An event held in 2011, saw the Peas actually dressed in gear made by LEGO... omg... really? Yup. Lego Baseball Hat = Apl de Ap challenge. Jeez. OK... was I on to something here? Thinking about it, the rewards for completing these challenges are clothes and accessories right?? So.... PUT THEM ALL ON lol!! I then noticed that when equipping some items, the Peas speak to you. Pay special attention to the Peas commenting on a lot of items... "That's so cool', or 'Man... that is DOPE!' etc etc. These are the items that you want to be wearing. DO NOT JUST PUT ON ONE ITEM THOUGH! It could be 'outfit' related... so cover your character in 'talking' clothes and accessories.

In short, I went through my entire wardrobe, only equipping items that the Peas were commenting on... and steadily now... the challenges were appearing.

My method outside the wardrobe was simple... having done almost everything in the game already, I had no need to dance, unless there was a challenge. I started the song (same one, any one you're good at), and if a challenge didn't appear, I quit out, and started it again. After 5 or so starts of the song with the outfit I was wearing, I would go and change everything I was wearing... again for something that was commented on if possible. Repeat until complete.

Its worth noting that the same item can be commented on by any BEP, and not specifically Will or Fergie, making me think that who you hear is not as important as the fact you hear someone. If you're sure that an item has challenged you already, note it down somewhere, or you may disappear up your own *** like I almost did towards the end.

My very last challenge was for Taboo.... and I could not for the life of me get it to appear. In an act of pure desperation, I dressed my guy exactly like Taboo is dressed in the opening Title Screen... and guess what... final challenge appeared!!

For those people at the top of the leaderboard - don't get frustrated when you go for a while without seeing any appearing... you gotta remember you have most probably worn a lot of the stuff in the wardrobe already, so you're stuck looking for those last few. Don't give up... because this is the way to do it.

Finally... I'm really sorry this is so dam long... but I wanted to share it all with you lot lol.

Good luck smile
