Official KWCUSA 2022 
Video Trial Rounds

The 2022 Karaoke World Championships USA (KWCUSA) Season has begun!
We have kicked off the 2022 KWCUSA Season with Video Trial Rounds!

The Third and Final Group of KWCUSA Audition Trials start on May 1st and end on May 29th  2022.

All you have to do to compete as a singer is submit a current audition video during that time.


If you are a KWCUSA member and submit your audition video by May 15th 2022, you can receive the feedback and scores from our judges with time before that deadline, and you can decide whether you are going to STICK with that original video and take your chance with it, or TWIST and create a new video (it can even be a different song!) and be given a chance to resubmit a new audition video by May 29th for no additional entry fee.  This valuable opportunity not only allows for a free second chance for any member, it also would allow the singer more airtime when the KWCUSA Group 3 Video Finale Showcase is broadcast on YouTube.

The original submitted video will be shown along side the full videos for the final selected video.

However, If you think you have what it takes...

One video CAN be enough to get into the round and win! 

 (Keep in mind feedback and growth is what helps build performers into champions, and members can still have access to their scores and notes even if they are not participating in Stick or Twist!)

Basic Video Guidelines:

*Videos can be made on your favorite singing app or even at your favorite Karaoke Venue

*Videos must be recorded within the past year, preferably a recent 2022 performance 

*Try to record your video in the landscape (horizontal) orientation whenever possible

*Please include as much of the full song  in your video submission.

*Auditions must be at least 90 seconds of a performance for the jury to consider for review

*Please limit any vocal effects used 

[**disclaimer: using pitch corrections will disqualify the singer from the current video round] 

*No lead vocals or original artists should be present in your audition track selection

*No other people should appear in your video audition

[**disclaimer: if recording in a live venue setting  exceptions will be made for KJ's or karaoke band members and venue staff in the course of working their shift that are not in any way directly attempting to enhance the singers audition.]

The Top 8 singers in each of the Three Video Rounds will move on to the 2022 KWCUSA Video Finale. The top Six Singers from the 2022 KWCUSA Video Finale will earn a spot at the Karaoke World Championships USA National Finals being held July 17th - July 19th, 2022 and the Top Performer from the KWUCSA Video Finale will be named the KWCUSA Video Champion and win a Trip (Flight & Hotel) to Las Vegas, NV for the KWCUSA National Finals.

(*Members may access their notes and scores prior to posted video round deadlines in order to have a second chance at submitting their audition videos for no extra entry fee.

The 'Stick or Twist' entry applies only once per round.)
