TikTok, Enthusiast Gaming, and e.l.f. Cosmetics are hosting a big talent hunt with a head-turning grand prize up for grabs, and — wait. Hold up. For once, the competition is laser-focused on gamers.

TikTok Gamers Got Talent is a seven-week live series (complete with celebrity judges) that kicks off Sunday, May 9 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern — but first, auditions. For a crack at the $25,000 prize, you’ll have until May 2 at 11:59 p.m. ET to send in a TikTok video showcasing your talent. Open-ended, we know.

What exactly are the judges looking for? TikTok Gamers Got Talent submissions will be scored based on “entertainment value,” “quality of presentation,” and “level of skill demonstrated.”

A little more fine print: the competition is open to the US and Canada, it’s a clean talent show (no swearing!), and your entry needs to be all about you — so no pairs or groups, and keep the kids out.

Once this audition phase wraps up on May 2, the top contestants “will share their talents live in front of a rotating panel of celebrity judges” in weekly episodes culminating in a grand finale on June 20.

If you haven’t been on TikTok lately (or… ever), you might be shocked by how pervasive gaming culture has become on the platform — iconic video game music and sound effects, in particular, have taken on a whole new life. To put a ridiculous number on it, “#Gaming has over 105B views on TikTok globally.”

The Destructoid community is full of creative folks, and we’ll be rooting for you. Make us proud.
