4 & 5 September 2021
The song entries received through the Open Call will be curated, and 20 song entries will be selected to be showcased via live performances at Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre. Online Live Showcases performances are based on creativity; the entrants of the selected songs are required to decide on their song’s live performance format (be it as a solo act, group act or with a band etc). However, it is compulsory for the song to be performed with at least 1 live music instrument (guitar, keyboard, ukulele etc).
In view of COVID-19 precautionary measures, participants’ performances will be pre-recorded between 28-31 August 2021 with live band, audio and multi-camera videography set up at SCCC. Participants and their musicians are required to be present for recording based on the stipulated time slot assigned to them.
Participants are required to come online via virtual video conferencing platform to respond to judges’ comments and the announcement of results on their performing day, either on 4 or 5 September 2021.
Live commentary by industry professional judges will also be conducted during live streaming to curate on the songs performed. 10 entrants (5 from each Online Live Showcases) will be chosen at the end of the entire Online Live Showcases for Masterclasses & performing at the Finale Concert.
Online Live Showcases will be on 4 September and 5 September 2021.
