Will & Monifa Sims Somehow Made “The Tonight Show” Cry-Funny

I'm sitting at my desk cry-laughing this morning thanks to, of all things, "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."

When someone dares to karaoke a Whitney Houston song, the end result usually falls somewhere between "tragic" and "ear-splitting." So when this random girl stepped up to the karaoke microphone in the electronics department of a Singapore grocery store and cued up "I Will Always Love You," nobody paid much attention.

What’s Your Karaoke Song?

According to some research done by the karaoke website Lucky Voice, Adele is 2011's karaoke queen.  Her track "Someone Like You" accounted for 14 percent of all karaoke sung. And if people weren't belting that one, 25 percent of them were singing some other Adele ditty. And not as well as she does, I presume.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Karaokes As Axl Rose

Two things we absolutely love: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and old-school Axl Rose. So imagine how much we loved Joseph Gordon-Levitt singing Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" in the style of Axl Rose Tuesday night on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."

Jason Segel And John Krasinski Karaoke, Dance With Blow-Up Doll

I'm not so into the idea of bachelorette parties. But if I were ever to have one, I would want Jason Segel and John Krasinski to crash it, like they did for a random woman in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Here they are, sloppily karaoking "With a Little Help From My Friends" at the bachelorette's request.

My New Karaoke Partner

I am mildly obsessed with karaoke. The fugs fake backgrounds, the bad backup vocals, the words with the bouncing balls—all of it makes me giddy. This dude is really embracing the true spirit of karaoke with his rendition of "This Is How We Do It." And I've decided I want to do it with him…

Singer Wins Big — One-Million-Dumplings Big

How we wish we could be Edward Pimentel. He's a lucky winner of the World Karaoke Championships, and the proud recipient of its one million dumpling prize. Yes, dumplings.

Tuesday Night Is Karaoke Porn Night At Sardo’s

Bar owners often try to come up with inventive ideas to fill bar stools and sell bevs, but I think Sardo's Grill & Lounge, a dive karaoke bar in Los Angeles, should win an award for creativity. They've come up with “Porn Star Tuesdays," a night for the porn industry's best and brightest to get…

Woman Jumped For Crappy Karaoke Singing

I have listened to some pretty bad karaoke performances in my lifetime. Some have left me feeling disappointed; others have inspired me to stuff a napkin in my ear to dull the sound, but never have I felt like inflicting bodily harm on the performer. Apparently, that isn't the case for everyone. A 25-year-old Connecticut…
