The Karaoke World Championships is a truly one of a kind opportunity for aspiring singers from all walks of life around the globe, to perform on a world stage. KWC USA produced by Epic Performance Productions, is the only organization in the United States affiliated with the Karaoke World Championships Organization.
It is our goal to find the best singers the country has to offer to represent the United States of America at the Karaoke World Championships World Finals. At participating local venues, singers will try out for a venue team. Each trial round will place the top few singers of the night into a KWCUSA Venue Team selection finals at that location. The Venue Teams will move on to compete against other venue teams inm a state chapter or charter finals or directly to nationals depending on the teams level of involvement in the KWCUSA competition season.
The top 5 Chapter or Charter Finalists then move on to the
KWCUSA National Finals August 18th through the 21st in the Grandview Lounge at the South Point Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada!
At the National Finals, up to 100 Vocal Athletes and State Champions from all over the country will come together in an attempt to become the US National Champion or US National Champion Duet Team* to represent the U.S.A. in the KWC World Finals Event as a member of Team USA. (*KWCUSA Duets is a separate division than solos) The winner for the 2019 competition season.

USA World Champions
The Karaoke World Championship USA had another fantastic competition season for the 2018 season. The US team earned medals in all 3 of the divisions: Solos, Duets, and the newest divisions the Battle of Champions round.
For the third consecutive year Team USA has shown the world the phenomenal talent that can be found all over our diverse nation.
In the solo division the competition was even harder this year as the gender categories were eliminated, and for the first time ever only one world winner was announced.
Mikko Blaze Bordeaux, who earned a silver medal in 2017 KWC World Finals (with his duet partner Beth Brennan Norris) has taken the title as KWC World Champion for 2018.
The US Duet Team of Mel Arizpe and Laura Carrizales continued a strong showing for the US taking the Bronze Medal at the World Finals in Helsinki Finland for 2018. The USA has now taken a medal in the duet division since it's inception in 2016.
Chyee Howell, our outgoing 2017 Female World Gold Medalist competed in the first ever Battle of Champions division and earned the Bronze Medal for Team USA competing against other KWC World Champions.
All of these incredible artists have done an amazing job representing our nation and we look forward to 2019, and the search for the next world champions starting with hearing local talent all around the country in the upcoming 2019 KWCUSA competition year!
