10 Worst Karaoke FAILS
In this of the 10 Worst Karaoke Fails, PopCrush is counting down the most atrocious karaoke renditions we could find. While karaoke isn't usually met with high expectations, some people are just so shockingly bad that it makes you wonder what prompted them to start singing in public to begin with. When most people think of karaoke, they think of bars; but with the power of computer cameras and YouTube, anybody can be a karaoke star, even if they aren't 21 yet! Check out the 10 Worst Karaoke Fails, including horrible renditions of tunes by Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Madonna, and the Black Eyed Peas. Warning: Keep your ear plugs on standby!
‘Born This Way’
Watch Piers as he grunts and groans his way through Lady Gaga's self-empowering anthem 'Born This Way.' He sounds more like bar rat Barney Gumble from 'The Simpsons' rather than Mother Monster, landing him at No. 10 on our 10 Worst Karaoke Fails.
‘Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!’
It might seem hard to believe, but the duo singing the awful, and annoyingly infectious Vengaboys hit are actually members of Art Brut, a successful indie rock band. Either pop isn't Jasper and Eddie's forte, or this song is just impossible to sing without sounding terrible.
This guy doesn't seem to be that bad of a singer at first, but when he hits the second verse of the Alicia Keys tune 'No One,' his performance turns from endearing to cringe-worthy. At least he got all of the lyrics right, even if he is just reading them off of his computer screen.
‘You Should Be Dancing’
Nobody can sing falsetto like Bee Gees member Barry Gibb, and these two dudes prove that and then some. Watch them as they ruin one of disco's greatest songs, landing them on our list of the worst karaoke fails.
Why does this video make us want to cover our eyes and go hide somewhere? There is something about this Dustin Hoffman doppelgänger that makes us squirm, and it's not just his horrific rendition of Katy Perry's 'Firework.'
‘Like a Virgin’
Surprisingly, this is the only video on our list of the 10 Worst Karaoke Fails that involves someone being completely hammered. This woman has clearly had too much to drink, but we can't help but giggle at her cockeyed, slurry version of Madonna's classic dance tune.
‘Blah Blah Blah’
Auto-Tuned karaoke? Now we know why we've never heard of this phenomenon before, because it is completely and utterly horrific. As you watch this kid sing a NSFW rendition of 'Blah Blah Blah' by Kesha, try not to punch your computer screen in an Auto-Tune induced rage.
‘The Power of Love’
Oh. My. God. This poor woman is more than tone-deaf. Whoever encouraged her to perform a Celine Dion song in public should be ashamed of themselves. Let's hope she has retired from her karaoke career for good.
‘Touch My Body’
No one is going to ever touch this dude's body, because no one can understand a damn word he's saying! Check out his attempt to sing like Mariah Carey, which turns out to be a seriously epic karaoke fail.
'My Humps' might be one of the most ridiculous and obnoxious songs of all time, but the Black Eyed Peas track has been taken to a whole new level of bad thanks to Nick Dreamer. This karaoke fail is especially hilarious since Dreamer is trying his best to sound like Fergie, when in fact he sounds like a squealing piglet, landing him at No. 1 on our list of the 10 Worst Karaoke FAILS.
