TKK Mad Skills Battle

After seeing each other’s best acts in the Gala, TKK Mad Skills Battle is where the performers get to challenge each other one-on-one. In just 30 seconds’ time, each contestant must demonstrate their best solo acts and impress the audience in a split second. The best who wins the audience’s heart is the final winner.

More than a series of gripping and one-on-one contests, TKK Mad Skills Battle is a vibrant party. Behind the epic contests and regardless of results, fearless contestants are fuelled by a spirit of “never quit, never give up”. They may suffer performance hiccups or lose to more talented opponents, but contestants never quit, won’t fear setbacks and always get back up after making mistakes. After all, relentless perseverance is what “TKK Mad Skills Battle” is about!
