Each month during virtual Fusion there will be a Superpower Spotlight segment (exact date and times: TBD). It will be led by a host and a panel of 4 commentators, who will introduce the participants and provide feedback and commentary on their performance.

  • There will be one live show per month (on Wednesdays) during the course of Fusion (July-Dec) and the finale will take place in December.
  • All selected contestants will receive a schedule so they know which month their performance will be showcased.
  • All Fusion attendees who attend the Superpower Spotlight segment will have the opportunity to select their favorite performance from that month through live polling. Attendees will be asked to vote for the performance they like the best based on entertainment value, talent, creativity, and originality.
  • The performance that receives the highest score during live polling will be declared the winner for that month.
  • The winner from each month (July – November) will then compete in the December Finale
  • Each monthly winner will participate in the December Finale and the person or group who receives the highest score following live polling will be declared the winner.

The odds of winning depend on the number of auditions received during the competition and will depend on attendee ranking of performances.
