5 Karaoke Top Tips
Tip 1: Have a go-to karaoke song (or a song you at least know the words to)
Karaoke aficionados will have a number of songs in their repertoire of which they know all the words, cords and nuances and can deliver a 5-star performance to rival that of the original artist. For those who aren’t regulars in a karaoke booth, though, you should still have at least one karaoke song up your sleeve.
Some popular choices include “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey; “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston; “Purple Rain” by Prince; “Livin’ On A Prayer” by Bon Jovi; and “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. Which will be yours?
Once you’ve chosen your song don’t forget to practise in the shower and get ready to wow your family and friends on the night!
Tip 2: Choose crowd-pleasers
The best karaoke nights feature a selection of popular songs that everyone knows the words to; songs that fill a dance floor and get a crowd excited. Therefore, in order to keep up the momentum of your karaoke night, you should to stick to floor-fillers and not veer too heavily into niche genres or songs that have long instrumentals.
Tip 3: Don’t hog the mic
We all know the feeling: you finally muster up the courage to get onto the mic, you flex your vocal cords and get a great response from those around you, and then, because you’re having so much fun, you don’t want to let go of the mic, ever.
Belting out the biggest ballads and feeling like a rockstar is great, but don’t hog the mic! Make sure that everyone in your party has their moment in the spotlight. But don’t worry, you can still sing along!
Tip 4: Get everyone involved
Karaoke nights are designed to be a shared experience for groups of all sizes. So, instead of flying solo you should pick duets and group songs and encourage your group to collaborate. The result is a lot more memorable.
Tip 5: Have fun!
Karaoke is all about having fun, so grab your friends, have a drink, shed your inhibitions and take the stage. The moment is yours!
