Karaoke has been a go-to party game for years, and for good reason: it’s fun! But if you’re getting a little tired of the same old karaoke party, there are ways to add in a few games and mix things up.

Karaoke games are a great way to add some excitement to your karaoke party. These ten games will spice up any party so grab a microphone and get ready to have some fun!

1. Karaoke Charades

This game is a variation of the classic charades game. Divide your guests into teams and select one player from each team to be the first “singer.”

The singers must then act out a famous karaoke song without speaking. The rest of the players must try to guess the song.  If the team guesses the song, then they earn a point. The first team to reach five points wins.

2. Name That Tune 

This is a favorite among karaoke lovers, and it gets everyone involved. Play a song and have your guests name the artist and title.

The first person to guess both correctly wins a point. The player with the highest number of correct guesses wins at the end of the game.

3. Karaoke Scavenger Hunt

The karaoke scavenger hunt is a fun way to get everyone up and moving. Split your guests into teams and give them a list of items to find or tasks to complete.

Each item on the list can be something related to karaoke, such as finding a CD with a karaoke song on it or taking a picture of someone singing into a microphone. The first team to complete the list wins.

4. Rewrite the Song

This game is a lot of fun for those who love to sing. Split the players into teams, and give each team a verse of a popular karaoke song to rewrite.

The rewritten verses can be as silly or as serious as you like. Each team performs the songs for the other guests and see who can guess which song is being sung.

5. Don’t Forget the Lyrics

Do you want to test the karaoke skills of your guest? Then this is the perfect game. One player starts by singing a line from a well-known karaoke song.

The next player then has to sing the next line, and so on. If you forget the lyrics, you’re out of the game. The last player left in the game wins.

Another way is for the moderator to play a song, then pause it at a point with the lyrics hidden. The players then have to guess the missing lyrics either as a team or individually.

6. Karaoke Quiz

The karaoke quiz game is excellent for testing your knowledge. Create a quiz with questions about famous karaoke songs, artists, or lyrics. Teams can compete to see who can answer the most questions correctly.

7. Karaoke Roulette

This is a fun game to add to your next karaoke party. Write down everyone’s name, put it in a bowl, and draw out one name. That person then has to sing a karaoke song, chosen at random or by the other players, for the entire party to hear.

8. Song Association

Song association is another game that adds spice to a party, and like most games, it is played individually, in duos, or larger groups. Everyone writes down a word on a piece of paper and puts it in a bowl/hat. Each player/team picks a paper and thinks of a song that contains that word.

Depending on the set rules, it may be in the title or lyrics. You could make it more challenging by setting a no-repeat rule; that is, no song can be repeated even if it has a different word.

9. Guess the Album

Play a random song, and most people know the title. Why not make your party more exciting by playing the guess the album game. Participants will have to guess the album that a song belongs to. If they get it right, they get the point; if not, then they’re out!

10. Song Mix-Up

Get two bowls, write down different song titles across genres on pieces of paper in the first bowl, and name famous singers in the second bowl. Each player has to one piece of paper from each bowl and sings the song in the style of the artist they picked. This is the ideal game for when you have a lot of people and want everyone to participate; it is a sure way to get laughs.
