It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but here are the reasons why we love karaoke. It's Simply The Best..!

1. You get to choose the songs you want to sing…

It may sound obvious, but there’s nothing better than getting to pick your fave songs to sing! We love singing along to tunes in the car, but at karaoke, you don’t have to station surf to belt out your chosen classics.

2. You can release your inner pop star…

Sure, you may not be the best singer in the world, but you can totally pull off being a popster for the evening, right?!

3. You get to relive your teenage years…

We loved a boy band and a bit of Girl Power back in the day, so we adore the nostalgic feeling of karaoke. B*Witched, 5ive, Backstreet Boys are all on the playlist, to name but a few. (You obviously have to throw in some cool tunes like Warren G’s Regulate and try your best to reach Frankie Valli’s pitch too!).

4. Karaoke brings people together…

Even if you’re not the best singer in the world, karaoke is uplifting and it brings people together. We bet you’ve all got your arms around each other whilst you belt out We Are The Champions at the end of the night.

5. No-one cares if you’re not pitch perfect…

That’s not really the point of karaoke, is it?! Even if you’re tone deaf, you get to sing with a group and, unless they’re semi-pros, you’ll likely all be as bad as each other. That’s half the fun.

6. It helps relieve stress…

It does for us, anyway! Singing releases endorphins in the brain – which can improve your mood and help you feel better. So if you’re feeling blue, grab a mic and sing your heart out!

7. You (probably) won’t become a diva, but…

It’s a good way to build your confidence. It seems terrifying singing in front of people, but in a group, and amongst friends, overcoming these fears may just improve your confidence. Why not give it a go?!

8. It’s fun!

Nuff said!
