How does it work?

The Next Big Star event will consist of 5 rounds of 1v1 King of the Court. Each round lasts 10 minutes. At the end of each round the scores are tallied and the 5 players with the lowest scores will be eliminated from the competition. 

 

The fans / judges will have the power to vote for one of the five players, allowing him / her to remain in the contest and pass on to the next round. At the end of 5 rounds the remaining two competitors will advance to the championship round to determine the event winner.
