Charlie Puth performs in virtual concert on TikTok to ring in 2022

TikTok is getting ready to celebrate the New Year in good company!

Singer Charlie Puth and artists Kali Uchis and Rico Nasty will perform on the virtual stage for a live concert. The appointment is set for December 31 at 6 p.m. in the United States. Mark your calendar. This will be TikTok’s last show of the year.

While TV stations like Fox have canceled their New Year’s specials due to the spread of the Omicron variant, the Chinese social network has planned its own alternative.

During the covid-19 pandemic, virtual concerts emerged as the solution to social distancing measures and audience restrictions.

This Friday, December 31, musical artists Charlie Puth, Kali Uchis and Rico Nasty will perform on TikTok’s virtual stage between 6 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. PT.

A symbolic lineup of three artists who saw breakthroughs on the platform in 2021. TikTok recently ranked singer and songwriter Charlie Puth as the eighth most viewed artist on TikTok; Kali Uchis’ song “Telepatía” was the app’s hottest Latin song in 2021 while rapper Rico Nasty has over 1.8 million subscribers on TikTok.

The concert will be broadcast from the TikTok towers, designed to resemble a series of apartments, with each artist performing in a space specially designed for the event and in keeping with the artist’s style. While the three artists will present the show to their audience in a livestream, some creators of the platform have also been invited.

According to Variety, user averagefashionblogger will be hosting the event. TikTokers scarlet_may.1, tracy.oj, cristiandennis, tyshonlawrence and 8illy were also mentioned. This is not the first time that TikTok has hosted a virtual concert event on its platform. The Chinese social network in particular attracted more than 5.5 million viewers during Ed Sheeran’s live in July.
