The Grand Finalists will do Live Performance on the Finale day. Judges and panellists will give 100 points score based on the finalist’s performance.


In Live performance, there is only one level of stage performance for each finalist in this GRAND FINALE. Each finalist has to solve a 3×3 Rubik’s cube with short span of time.

The finalists have to solve the Rubik’s cube before 2 minutes. i.e., the finalist will have one Rubik’s cube on a table, they need to solve that one cube within the overall time duration 2 minutes. Completion of the cube is must for each finalist.

This Live Stage Performance carries 100 points, in which the finalists have to score the maximum points. The results will be notified by the judges/panellists thereupon. The judges will provide points as per scoring procedure below.

* Ensure to respect timelines as timer will be used and no extra time will be provided.

Virtual Performance option – If we couldn’t do a face to face event, then virtual performance will be done on Video Conferencing software like Zoom, Microsoft Teams.


The performances are primarily judged on below factors. It consists of 100 points out of total.

* Scores are averaged for all judges and panellists to determine the final score.



Some of the basic rules for the Best Speed Cuber talent during the Grand Finale Performance are as follows,

  • Both finalists Talent will be provided one pre-mixed up 3×3 Rubik’s cube during the Live Stage Performance.
  • Host will ask Talents to introduce themselves to the judges.
  • How to start the Solving: Before starting, both talents need to FULLY close their eyes and a mixed up 3×3 Cube will be provided to each talent (on a Table). Provided cubes will be pre-sanitized.
  • As soon as Host says START, both talents need to open their eyes and pick up the Cube and start solving it. The timer will start when host says START.
  • Talent must fully align the Cube in order to finish. If completion of the solved puzzle is misaligned, i.e., if your cube is a single quarter OR a single half turn away from being solved when you stop the timer, a penalty of 10 points is reduced from your score.
  • If the misaligned layer is closer to being correctly aligned than it is to being incorrectly aligned, no penalty will be issued. If two or more layers are misaligned (e.g. a 3×3 is an M move away from being solved), then the time is recorded as a DNF (did not finish).


In official solves, pieces from your puzzle may pop and corners may twist if the puzzle is too loose. These defects are the responsibility of the solver.

  • If a solver pops their puzzle during a solve, they can either retrieve the piece, reinsert it and finish the solve (all whilst the timer is still running), or stop the timer and have the solve recorded as a DNF. 
  • Please note that you cannot use tools or external equipment to aid in the repair of the puzzle during an official solve.
  • If a corner twists in its place within a solve, the solve may be completed and the twisted corner corrected once the rest of the solve has been completed. 
  • These defects do not allow for the timer to be paused; once the timer has started, if the cube is not solved upon stopping the timer then the solve is recorded as a DNF, regardless of the defect in question.

* It’s important to keep practicing to solve the Rubik’s cube anyways, as this will help you to score better in next year’s IET 2021 Best Speed Cuber.
