Which is why girl group karaoke is such a great idea for your next night out. Experience the fun and fearless force of girl power with your BFFs, and start with our list of the five most iconic girl group songs:
1. Spice Girls – Wannabe
The ultimate Girl Power! track, the Spice Girls were instantly iconic because they each embodied a unique persona – something most girlfriend groups can relate to. “Wannabe”, and it’s incredibly nostalgic 90’s music video, is a karaoke staple for a reason. Sing Spice Girls – Wannabe karaoke here.
2. The Supremes – Stop! In the Name of Love
The ORIGINAL girl group, Diana Ross and the Supremes set the standard for harmonies that women of this generation can still appreciate. Not too many tracks from the 1960s, with a chorus that everybody can recite by heart, can get a group of modern karaoke queens together like this one. Sing The Supremes – Stop!

Beyoncé and the girls could’ve easily walked away after dropping this anti-cheating anthem in 1999 – and we’re eternally grateful they didn’t! Featuring catchy lyrics and slick production, this song is a must for girls’-night-out-karaoke. Chances are: you, your girlfriends, and everyone else in the room already know every, single word.

5. Little Mix – Shout Out to My Ex
Adding a little mix of Little Mix to any karaoke night is always a good idea.
