Single World Champion
Starting this year, we will be crowning a World Champion – not a separate champion for men and women! Our goal is to discover and promote the best amateur singer in the world regardless of gender. As a result of this, the United Kingdom will be sending the top two singers in the UK Final, as champions to compete in Helsinki regardless as gender.
