Wikipedia: Karaoke
Karaoke (/ˌkærəˈoʊki/; Japanese: [kaɾaoke]; カラオケ, clipped compound of Japanese kara 空 “empty” and ōkesutora オーケストラ “orchestra”) is a type of interactive entertainment usually offered in clubs and bars, where people sing along to recorded music using a microphone. The music is an instrumental version of a well-known popular song. Lyrics are usually displayed on a video screen, along with a moving symbol, changing colour, or music video images, to guide the singer.
