Each winner receives RM5,000 and also wins a trip to the TikTok Gala in Seoul, South Korea in November to meet and celebrate with other creators from the app’s global community.

The 1 Million Audition in Malaysia comes hot on the heels of the Big Stage, a reality singing competition broadcast on satellite television which saw contestants dubbed Budak Baru Nak Up (Kids About to Be Popular) compete LIVE on stage for eight weeks. The final stage held recently saw Sarah Suhairi being crowned as the grand winner. TikTok was the official and only audience voting platform during the competition that contributed to the contestant’s final score.

For #1MillionMusic category winner, Ai Wahida (@aiwahida), whose TikTok fanbase grew to 43,800 followers with more than 214,000 likes to-date, the announcement was a dream come true. “Singing has always been my passion and part of who I am – TikTok has given me the chance to grow the fanbase of my social media platforms, allowing me to share my love for music with all my fans. This gives me all the motivation in the world to work harder to one day make my singing debut and achieve my childhood dream of becoming a recording artist!”

For the celebrities leading the 1 Million Audition, there was only pure amazement and excitement over the campaign. Music category mentor, Shila Amzah, was impressed by the participants’ originality and their vocal prowess captivated the talented singer. “To all contestants, well done and keep on creating – believe in yourself and you will get there. For the winner of the Music category, Shila made a special TikTok shoutout video, and has this to add, "Wahida, continue chasing your dream and I am sure your talent and determination will make us Malaysians proud!”
