Karaoke World Championships 2021

The Karaoke World Championships is the world’s biggest and most prestigious global talent competition and karaoke event. It represents a for passion for music, and for global friendships through singing. Last year and this year we have tackled the covid pandemic by creating a global event that is easy to participate in remotely, no matter where you are, and thus bringing people closer to each other with music.

The competition rounds are pre-recorded videos and there are judges in every participating country. Most countries have now selected their contestants and all the KWC 2021 finalists will be registered on this page by the 25th October. Every singer in KWC represents both her/himself and a country. There are no genre categories, everyone sings in the same solo competition.


We have 52 singers representing 26 different countries, and every contestant sings on Rounds 1 and 2.
The top-20 singers will move forward to Round 3.

(There will be no competition round on November 6th as informed before)

FINAL ROUND on November 27th will be hosted by Michael Yelvigton and will include a backstage where all the singers, KWC country partners and judges can join via zoom. There will also be a public vote during the live stream.
13:00 UTC KWC 2021 TOP-20 in number order

We have an international panel of judges from every country where we have singers from. Every country will give scores to their top-10 singers on each round. Scores will be given in Eurovision style: 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1. A country jury can not give points to their own singers.

All the scores will be announced after the competition rounds. The public vote will also be turned into Eurovision scores = only the top-10 singers will receive points from the vote.

The Round 2 the scores will be added to the Round 1 scores and the cumulative points will determine the top-20 singers who will advance on Round 3. In case of a tie we will use the Eurovision rules: the one with more high scores (12, then 10, 8…) will win. If there still is a tie, the one with more votes will win.

The Karaoke World Champion 2021 will be announced on November 27th. The winner will receive a cash prize, sponsor prizes and flights & accommodation to KWC 2022 finals in Nes, Norway, in August 2022. All top singers will receive sponsor prizes.
