The Karaoke World Championships is the world’s biggest and most prestigious global talent competition and karaoke event. It brings together singers from all over the world.
Karaoke World Championships works through countries with national competitions. Every participating country sends their top singers in the Karaoke World Championships finals in Panama in November.
PLEASE NOTE: THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS ARE ONLY FOR SINGERS IN COUNTRIES THAT DO NOT HAVE A NATIONAL KWC COMPETITION!
REMEMBER TO CHECK YOUR COUNTRY’S STATUS ON THE COUNTRIES PAGE.
The KWC Global Video Challenge
is a way to enter the competition for all the singers in the world who live outside of participating countries. If you do not reside in a participating country (listed here), you can submit an online audition directly into the Global Video Challenge in our Karaoke World Championships Facebook Group.
How to participate:
- Record a video of yourself singing a song and upload it on Facebook in the Karaoke World Championships Facebook Group.
- The video has to be one shot and no editing is allowed except trimming the length.
- Singing applications that have autotune and/or visual branding are not allowed. Use your normal camera app.
- The video must NOT include karaoke texts, other people, brands or logos and any kind of messages that can be interpreted as offensive.
- It is totally free to participate in Global Video Challenge.
Together with your video you must add this text to your post: ”This is my entry for the KWC 2023 Global Video Challenge.” + your full name, age and which country you want to represent AND the hashtag #kwc2023. Only videos with all this information and the correct hashtag will be reviewed by the KWC Video Jury.
Tell your friends once you have participated. Make them participate too!
Make sure you are eligible to participate:

The KWC Global Video Challenge is on until the end of July. Should we have a huge amount of contestants, we may have a Round 2 in August. This will be notified later.
