1. Choose a theme for your Karaoke Party

Take your party to the next level! All the greatest and most memorable parties have a theme. At the very least, themes help people think about what songs they would like to play. There are many topics you can choose from, like choosing a decade's theme (For example, the 60s, 70s, 80s… etc), rock' n’ roll, pop or more! 

You can even choose a theme from your favorite artist, band, or even a movie or musical. To give it more spice, you could ask your guests to prepare an outfit according to your theme, and you can wow them with awesome props and decorations.

2. Make a Kareoke Party Playlist

Now that you have selected a theme, choosing the song list will be a piece of cake. Create a playlist on your selected karaoke app or on YouTube. Then, spend some time adding different songs. Add songs for different categories, like for male voice, female voice, duets, love songs, heartbreak songs and more! We recommend having a song cue of at least 15-25 songs. In this way, there won’t be an awkward silence.  

If you aren’t using a theme for your party, you can look for popular karaoke songs playlists. Or you can also ask your friends to add songs to a group playlist, so the party keeps going for hours!

3.Give Out Prizes to the Top Performers

Who doesn’t love winning a prize? Give your attendees a special incentive for their heartfelt performance. By offering the winner some victorious gifts, you can make the games more challenging. Anything works as a prize, from candy to pizza, alcohol or a printed diploma. 

You could use the performance score of karaoke apps. Otherwise, you can create different categories for awards like best/worst singer, funny costume, best duet and let the audience vote for the winners. Thus, this experience will be for sure memorable for your friends.

4. Keep Your Guests Happy with Food and Drinks

A good party has awesome people, fun music… and food! Fuel your guests energy with snacks! It doesn’t even have to be an elaborate dinner. Your guests can either bring a dish each, or you can make it yourself, get supplies from your local supermarket. However, chips, pizza, and popcorn will never fail.

5. Invitations for the Karaoke Gang

Make a careful revision of your venue and your budget. After this, you can have an estimate of how many people you can invite. In this way, you won’t get carried away with the amount of guests. Mix avid singers, with party people and ‘closet singers’, everyone will add some of their special magic to the event.

The best part of a party is the people. Make sure you have the right mix of singers, and party people.

6. Organize Some Karaoke Games

Organize some small intermediate games, so there are no dull moments. For example, you can play “Google translated songs”. In this game, you feed the google translate tool with the lyrics of your favorite song. Then translate the song back to the original language. After this, you will have a funny and different version of the song to sing. Print these lyrics and make your guest sing them. We assure you that everyone will have a lot of laughs. 

Here are other karaoke games you can play at your party.

7. Prepare your Equipment

Have all your equipment tested and prepared beforehand. We also recommended running a trial before the karaoke party. Your setup depends on you. It can either be: 

  1. Using a karaoke machine (microphone, karaoke machine, TV/Screen/projector)

  2. Using a DIY karaoke setup (speaker, microphone, laptop/phone/device, TV/screen/projector)

However, karaoke machines can be heavy, impractical, and expensive. Nowadays, you can run your karaoke party from your devices like Laptop, iPad or even from your phone. Using screen mirroring devices will make it easy to cast your screen into your TV/screen.

Run a trial, get all your equipment tested and prepared beforehand
