Have you ever wondered why someone who sings so bad, took up being a KJ?

I don't know how many people travel like I do, but it could be something you have seen locally. We have been in places where the KJ sang so bad, people got up and left. Trying to do some stand-up comedy to keep things going and not good at that either. Personally, I think someone trying to make money doing this should be at least as good as half the audience. That way they could do a duet, fill in when there is no one signed up, entice people by saying, "Look how easy this really is, there is nothing to be afraid of".

Actually, it is the bad singer, I think, that could be a less intimidating host. If the host gets up and sings, and sucks, that should encourage more people to get up and sing and have fun. "Hell, if he can do it, I certainly can.". Ultimately, that IS what Karaoke is about. It's about fun.

HaHaHa.....some people have no idea how they sound.....anybody can sing karaoke if they sing the right songs...I am a perfect example of that. My voice is just so-so but I choose songs no one else sings one expects and have fun. Hubby on the other sings great so we make a great team...our motto is......."If you're not singing you're only having half the fun"

We are in Hell, Nevada.

Boyfriend is a good singer. I can overachieve to non-offensiveness with practice and song choice. I "end up running the shows" when his day job interferes with him doing it. The downside is I'm not a good duet partner. The upside is I don't take up alot of turns singing myself. It has taken about 3 years but people have finally figured out that not much that I say is serious and a few are actually starting to laugh.
