Following the auditions, there will be the quarter finals (July 16-18), semi-finals (July 24-25), and then the finals on July 31 and August 1, all available to watch on the Uplive app by following the host (Uplive ID: bojio_88).

Uplive Worldstage, first created by Uplive streamer Calvin (a.k.a. RapDooood) on the app, has become the home to hundreds of performers and music streamers from around the world who gather to compete, collaborate, and inspire at online music events exclusively on Uplive. The Worldstage now organizes a wide variety of online events, from monthly talent competition to weekly themed music parties, and numerous virtual nightlife events and charity fund raisers. In addition, the Uplive Worldstage Livehouse is a monthly showcase of Worldstage Legends (winners of the monthly competitions) performing back-to-back in a concert on Uplive.
"It has been an honor and pleasure to host Worldstage and bring together musicians and music enthusiasts from around the world. Letting streamers share their talents and network with musicians around the world, especially during the pandemic where many would seek comfort through music and performing, is so important. And it is all made possible through the Uplive livestream app," Calvin commented on the successful launch of the anniversary competition.
Other independent sponsors of the competition include Bidoo who was excited to see musicians from his home country of Malaysia able to "compete and network with many other musicians from around the world."
