TikTok and Enthusiast Gaming are partnering for a TikTok Gamers Got Talent competition. Until May 2, 2021, people in Canada and North America can submit videos to the service with #TikTokGGT. Then, between May 16, 2021 and June 20, 2021 there will be weekly shows leading up to a winner being crowned by judges. The contest, which is also sponsored by e.l.f. Cosmetics, will award one person a $25,000 grand prize.
The official website is now open. At the moment, it focuses on the audition phase and offers a schedule for upcoming episodes. Submissions will be judged on three criteria: entertainment value, level of skill demonstrated, and quality of submission. The 20 finalists will appear during the series, with new weekly judges made up of TikTok creators, esports personalities, performers, and people known for their skill playing games. Musician bbno$, influencers like Tori Pareno and Chica, and professional gamers like Loserfruit will be among the featured judges. Episodes of the show will air May 9th, May 16th, May 23rd, May 30th, June 6th, June 13th, and June 20th.
