Guest singers are seated in a waiting room with the three hosts, where they introduce themselves to viewers. The order of performances is decided randomly by presenter Shin Dong-yeop drawing a ball containing the performer's name, and the 500 member audience votes after each round for their favorite performance. The performer with the most votes by the episode wins. Starting February 15, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the votes will be made by 20 special judges (mostly KBS employees). They will score the artist however, the score will not be shown and instead a light will shine for the one with the most votes.
