Date: Friday, July 3, 2020
Time: 6:45 PM – 7:40 PM PDT (see timezone chart)

By the “where” it seems like the event will be streamed via Youtube and Twitch instead of taking place somewhere physically (or it wont have audience).
thanks to Nightmare for the news!
[UPDATE July 4, 2020] The Winner of the Audition was announced to be the 14-year-old Hinano Takashima.
Five judges oversaw the final round online: Theme-song writer Yuki Kajiura, music producer Yasunori Mori, Pony Canyon producers Toshihide Nishinaka and Mitsuyasu Yanagita, and Anime Expo Senior Director Azusa Matsuda.
Y.Kajiura stated: “Although it ended up being a rather unique audition, the basis lies in the ‘song.’ Since we were selecting someone that would have to make singing their livelihood, it was about finding the one that can display the charm of a beautiful music performance through the power of the ‘song,’”
