Kiyono participated in the opening act of the Morning Musume '16 Concert Tour Haru ~EMOTION IN MOTION~.

On May 5, she was awarded the public vote for best performance alongside Kasahara Momona at the Hello! Project Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2016 ~Haru no Koukai Jitsuryoku Shindan Test~ for her performance of "Tsumetai Kaze to Kataomoi".


On March 25 and 26, she participated in the Asobu. Kurasu. Sodateru. SATOYAMA & SATOUMI e Ikou 2017 event.

In April, Kiyono was featured in Juice=Juice's "Jidanda Dance" music video as a back dancer.

On May 5, at the Hello! Project Kenshuusei Happyoukai 2017 ~Haru no Koukai Jitsuryoku Shindan Test~, it was announced that she was selected to debut in a new section focused on theater, different from Engeki Joshibu, alongside Takase Kurumi.[2]

From June 2 to June 11, Kiyono participated in Pharaoh no Haka, an Engeki Joshibu musical starring Morning Musume '17.

On July 10, in an article on the Hello! Project official site announcing the release of the Hello Pro Maruwakari BOOK 2017 SUMMER, it was stated that Takase and Kiyono were promoted as official members of Hello! Project.[3] However, their profiles remain under Hello Pro Kenshuusei at this time.

On August 11, Kiyono and the four other members promoted from Hello Pro Kenshuusei released a digital song titled "Gobaku ~We Can't Go Back~".

From November 27 to December 3, Kiyono participated in the Engeki Joshibu musical Ichimai no Ticket ~Beatles ga Yattekuru!~.


On March 30, it was announced that Kiyono and Takase Kurumi would form a new group with the image of a "small theater troupe" that uses expressive power in their singing and dancing. They would begin activities between the summer and fall together with Ichioka Reina's own new group.[4]

An audition for new members to join either of the two groups was planned to begin in late April,[5] but the date on which further audition details would be announced and applications would start being accepted was changed to May 11.[6] On May 11, the Hello! Project "ONLY YOU" Audition" began.[7]
