Hi lovelies! As you know from my last post, my birthday was a few weeks ago! You can take a look at my post here! I decided to go to a little karaoke bar in Korea Town, and guess what, we ended up on stage! This honestly wasn’t my first time singing at a Karaoke Bar, I sang at the exact same one a few years ago and my experiences were night and day. This time was horrifying and very embarrassing, and on top of that, our boyfriends got the whole thing on camera, Snapchat and Instagram. Oh the beauty of social media.
Here are a few tips to have a good karaoke experience:
- Song Choice is EVERYTHING – The first time I karaoked, we chose to sing Wannabe by the Spice Girls. This is a song that everyone knows! Me, and my two best friends actually felt like rockstars! The crowd was vibing with us and singing along. This time we chose to sing Radar, by Britney Spears.
Fail. I think only true Britney fans know this song, which clearly, no one in the audience was.
- Sing With a Solid Group – So they call me and my three girlfriends on stage.. The four us then dwindles down to two, within the first 30 seconds. I was horrified, and actually remember praying that my last friend didn’t leave the stage as well! Luckily for me, she stayed! I am actually very proud of us. The other two left because they didn’t know the song. Again, song choice is everything!
- Be Confident – So, 2 out of 4 left the stage and our confidence level was at an all time low. We were literally backed into a the corner near the DJ! The fist time we did karaoke we felt like we were on top of the world. After all, if you aren’t confident in your performance, the audience won’t be either… OOPS.
- Have Some Alcohol in Your System – Last, but not least. Have a little bit of liquid courage going on. This time karaokeing, I was completely sober! Props to me for getting on stage and singing to an audience. I always hated presentations in school. The first time we sang at this bar, we were the very last performance of the night and let’s just say, we all had a few cocktails. This time, we performed midway, and no one was mentally prepared.
I hope you can learn from these tips and enjoy your next time karaoking!
