Let me share a little secret: singing together is the key ingredient in setting any karaoke party on fire. Nothing beats a good karaoke duet sang in perfect harmony! Duets are the way to get the singing vibe going for the shier singers, the ones who have a hard time coming up with a solo song, the harmonizers, the couples-in-love, the old friends with their nostalgic "this is our song" -song, the party animals who simply wanna share the joy... you know. Duets are for all of us!
Grab a microphone with your BFF, family member, colleague, partner, or a new karaoke friend, and jump on the magic carpet of duet singing. We put together a list of the best karaoke duets to sing once the situation allows us to safely sing together again.️ Let's dig into it and warm up our voices!
