    Many small town gay bars offer Karaoke on a slow night or the big cities have their own mixed bar, who has tried it and how did you do? I mean some people live for this stuff and perform every chance they get. I have never tried with a microphone and speaker anyway, I think I would need some voice coaching before I attempted an audience.

    I had never done karaoke until I decided to enter a karaoke competition. I ended up winning Talent Quest 2008 for the Mid-Atlantic region and competing nationally in Nevada via an all-expense paid trip. So, yeah, karaoke did me good.

    You won't be the only professional singer in many karaoke bars.

    It's just my way of relaxing. I don't do public karaoke all that often.

    I do love karaoke. The atmosphere varies from bar to bar. I find gay karaoke bars to be cliquish and about showing off. Straight ones that cater to competitive karaoke singers can be cliquish as well. My favorite karaoke bars with a good mix and a laid back atmosphere. The kind where everyone cheers after a song because it is about having fun. I haven't been to one in a while though. I want to take voice lessons because I use to have social anxiety. Even though its 99% gone I have a problem controlling my voice because it was high pitched for so long lol.

    Its hard to connect with an audience that just has straight faces. Smile! Take you're time when you're nervous, you're gnna want to speed up the pace, but dont. Also clap for all the other contestants and overall have fun with it.

    I totally can't sing. So no karaoke for me. But I do like being the audience and just have fun clapping.

    Aw, don't worry; you don't need a rock star voice for karaoke! It's all in the name of fun. Prince's catalog is my favorite, and "When Doves Cry" is my karaoke jam...LOL

    From where it all started: here in Japan most karaoke is done in a karaoke box, a private room where it's just you and your friends. It makes the whole experience much less intimidating. There are bars where the mike gets passed around, and you sing in front of the other patrons. However, unlike in the States, you don't feel quite so much 'on stage'. And no one ever expects anyone to be good.

    I did that once in Prague when I also for the first time got drunk, it was really fun and memorable. I even got a free drink afterwards from the club. Damn I miss Prague.

    One thing that I miss about Japan (I have resided in Canada for 7 years now) is, all of those Karaoke boxes!!
    I used to spend 6-8 hours at a time renting a room all to my myself...

    I'm surprised Prince hasn't pulled his karaoke licensing agreement like Garth Brooks, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and others have.

    I love it..I'm a people watcher and get off on people's reaction to my singing and watching others...I think as long as you're having fun it doesn't matter if you can sing, or sound like a frog...I like people that can't sing..and think they can...it's great humor....and we all need to laugh...

    Oh singing itself already is a great stress relief to me.
    Plus, I get to experiment and practice new songs that I wanna master without any embarrassment or interruption. ;)
