Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q: How can I win the Karaoke World Championships – the largest amateur singing competition in the world?
A: The first step is participating in local trials and progressing through these to the provincial trials.  Top contestants from their respective provinces will be invited to compete at the Canadian National Trials.  The winner receives a paid trip to represent Canada at the World Final, which will be held in Helsinki, Finland in 2017!   At the World final, there will be four rounds performed in three days.  The last man and woman standing win the title!

Q: But am I eligible to compete?
A: If you are over 18 years of age and consider yourself an amateur singer; if you don’t do paid singing performances on weekly basis and if you’re not funded by a third party, you may be eligible.  Contact us for details - sharonquinn@kwccanada.com
