|From the Where2sing.com stories:
Crashed and burned at karaoke
Well, here's just how Karaoke can help. I went along to support a good mate, and a great singer, perform before the judges in X factor. Despite being an amazing singer, he crashed and burned, because quite frankly, he didn't use the avenue of Karaoke in our pubs and clubs to test the waters with crowds and see what works and what doesn't on stage. I've sung at heaps of Karaoke venues across Sydney, throughout China and Japan, and the experience it gives you for the big league like X factor is undeniably helpful. He should start to spend more time at Karaoke as should other hopefuls. JOHN
