Live Audition Location

While the Karaoke World Championships USA 2021 season will still be held virtually, with video audition rounds running up until July. 

We are excited to now be able to add back in a bit of a live twist as we move more into the full season this year.  As we closely follow the newest updates on the current and ongoing Covid-19 pandemic around the nation, we have been asked by many in the karaoke community if we will be allowing full physical trials this year.  While we will not be holding any official live physical trials in sponsor team venues this year, we will be lifting the rule that you cannot use staged live performances for your submissions for the remainder of the 2021 season.  These performances can be in any sort of live setting however there are a few criteria that must be met.  In order to be able to use a recorded live performance from a live audition location the video must be shot in one take and the audio must come from the venue/host/or studio soundboard master mix and not the ambient room sound from a phone or webcam microphone source. The singers face must be visible to the camera at all times, and no other persons should be on stage or in the videos that will be submitted.  

*Singers will be responsible for getting and reviewing their videos directly from the participating Live Audition Location to submit for any open audition round.


Are you a venue, host, or studio ready to help your singers start their own personal Jouney to Stardom in the KWCUSA right from your location?

Entry Fee for each audition location permit is $100.

Physical locations require separate permit registration,  karaoke hosts may use their permit registration in any venue they are hosting in.   

Official Live Audition Recording Locations must follow the rules and guidelines for video submissions for the 2021 season of the KWCUSA.

***While the audition location should do everything in their power to provide quality videos in a timely manner for any participating singer, contestants are ultimately responsible for any video they submit for jury review.***
