When music meets cinema, it's a match made in heaven! Many a musician has understood this and crossed over to Hollywood. Some have even taken on roles as singers, actors, directors and even producers and we've lined some of them up here for you.
The very first forms of karaoke included only a backing track (here's a brief history of karaoke), but thankfully its evolved since its 1969 debut date. With any KaraFun application on any song, you've got the possibility of adjusting lead and background vocals!
You pitch your friends the idea of becoming a regular at karaoke: "You know what? I’m gonna start karaoke-ing every week!" In return for your brilliant idea, you wait for the applause, a few tears of joy, maybe even a bouquet of flowers, some fainting and an express-delivery order of T-shirts displaying your face, lauding your splendor.
But instead of encouragement and the well-merited applause, you only get worried looks and phoney smiles. "But can you even sing?”, "You think you are really ready to go on stage in front of lots of others?”, "Do you even know the words?” Or again, "You should think of warming up… We are just looking out for your best!" As if you had announced your ambition to join the IronMan, never before having participated in any sporting competition and with just over a week before the race.
Over the past 20 years, karaoke has grown in fame and popularity: even Hollywood's caught the singing bug!
Certain karaoke scenes have become classics and several have proven that some of these actors have talent that goes beyond the camera. We’ve rounded up some movies that are worth watching for entertainment, music and, of course, the karaoke scene.
For once, put the microphone away, grab the popcorn and let's watch some karaoke!

You're throwing a karaoke party and thanks to the remote feature, singers are adding songs directly to the queue from their smartphones and all's going swimmingly.... until, Jack and John both take the stage at the same time, ready to sing "Red Red Wine," insisting it's their respective turn.
The rendition quickly turns into a duet so no harm no foul, but this slight mishap could have been avoided simply by activating the feature "Ask singer's name when adding to queue"! Read on to learn how this works.
