Taylor Swift went on the most adorable date with One Direction barely a week into her rumoured relationship with Harry Styles. They all went to New York’s Hudson Hotel after 1D’s show at Madison Square Garden for KARAOKE!!
You’d think after singing all day they’d be sick of it by the evening (or at least want to preserve their voices) but we’re not complaining… We ARE, however, a little envious at the lucky crowd that got to witness the budding love of youth and get a free show from the singers. (I can’t imagine singing in front of them if I was there though!)
Some Directioners are already shipping Harry and Taylor (Haylor) but the 1D singer seems to be pretty happy. He tweeted about the night:
According to AZ Central, here’s what they sang:
“Islands in the Stream” — Taylor and Harry
“I Want It That Way” — One Direction full-band
“Ice Ice Baby” — Taylor & 1D Read more…
As the video touts, this is one of the most impressive displays of raw talent you’ll ever see. A random girl in Southeast Asia stepped up to a karaoke machine at a department store to sing “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston.
The young girl, who wears a superman T-shirt, denim shorts and a bright red backpack floors the shoppers, who steadily build an audience. Her friend recorded the video and it was eventually uploaded to The Real Singapore. Let’s hope this girl gets discovered!
Selling around 10 million copies worldwide and even surpassing the Harry Potter series’ record of the fastest-selling paperback, E.L James’ erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey seems to be taking the world by storm.
It’s hard to believe why that is, since I basically tortured myself from reading this novel just recently. Featuring terrible grammar and sex scenes so weird, my face was literally like this the whole time while reading:
So what better way to poke fun at the horrifying contents of James’ novel than through karaoke?
Inviting three members in his studio audience to sing some actual excerpts from the novel, Jimmy Fallon inevitably creates some comic genius.
But really, the funny thing here isn’t actually the karaoke. It’s the fact that these words were actually published in a New York Times’ best seller.
Drake made a fan’s lucky day when he joined her on stage to sing karaoke to one of his songs. The fan uploaded the video to YouTube of her singing “What’s My Name?” with Drake. It all went down at the Saddle Ranch.
“Excuse my voice but I was kinda nervous. Lol,” YouTube user Dee wrote below the video.
How do you think she did? And whose that assh*le yelling in the background?
According to TMZ, the King of Pop is set to star in a new video game that will essentially be a “dance karaoke.” Unlike many other ventures surrounding the deceased Jackson, apparently the pop singer’s estate is totally on board for this plan. Basically, gamers will see Jackson dancing on screen and then will be challenged to imitate his movements.
The game, currently untitled, will be available on multiple gaming platforms including Wii and Xbox 360. The Xbox version will include Microsoft’s new Kinect motion capture technology which will allow players to participate in the game without holding a controller.
Also in the Xbox version, the player will be judged based on full body moves; the game will process the player’s movements and display them on screen, dancing alongside Jackson.
If that wasn’t spectacular enough for aspiring Princes of Pop everywhere, the game also includes a karaoke feature which will allow players to sing along to Jackson songs and even funk up their voices with an autotune feature.
The game is being developed by Ubisoft (the same company behind Assassin’s Creed and Ghost Recon) and they have apparently secured permission from Jackson’s estate, so this is sure to go ahead. The game is scheduled to be released sometime before Christmas.
Was Aerosmith’s front man Steven Tyler lost during his last performance? Most celebrities do not do performances at the local Home Depot, but Steven Tyler is apparently not like most celebrities. According to People magazine, Tyler visited a Home Depot in Rancho Mirage, Calif., last Saturday, where he jumped on the p.a. system and sang hits like “Dude Looks like a lady” and “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.”
The sixty-one-year-old announced in December that he had entered rehab for an addiction to prescription painkillers and pain management.
Home Depot shoppers weren’t the only lucky customers to get a free concert from the infamous singer; he also joined in on some karaoke at the Tiltet Kilt, a Palm Desert pub. Two singers were booed during their rendition of Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” so Tyler grabbed the mic and gave the song a better, more professional ending.
Disney Interactive Studios has announced recently that there will be a Disney Sing It: Pop Hits, available to the masses.

On the Wii, Playstation 3 and Playstation 2 consoles, players will have the opportunity to match their talents with the performers which includes master recordings and popular music videos from global fan favorites. Read more…
I can’t sing. Not well, anyway. But I feel that puts me in the norm rather than outside of it. With that in mind, I sat down last week with a couple of friends who can sing, to enjoy a little SingStar: Queen.
As a huge Queen fan, I felt I had the advantage going in to this impromptu karaoke competition, at least when it came to knowing the lyrics and general dynamic of the songs. What I didn’t count on (and should have) is that my two fellow competitors were karaoke superstars. For convenience’s sake, let’s call them Brodie and his girlfriend, Chris. Read more…
