Participants at each venue will be required to enter qualifying stages between 3.00pm – 6.00pm, where the top eight scores from the Qualifying Round will be taken to the Semi-Final Round, which will follow immediately afterwards.

Furthermore, winners at each of the eight venues will receive a USD 100 gift card from Hot Topic, before submitting their scores and song to determine which two finalists will be inducted into the Grand Final, where they will compete for the prize vehicle in front of the game creators in Los Angeles, California.

Registrations are now open designated Hot Topic stores across the country.
