Best Musical Karaoke Songs: The Top 20

Best Musical Karaoke Songs: The Top 20

For the passionate karaoke enthusiasts and die-hard fans of musicals, the fusion of these two art forms is nothing short of magic. Whether you're singing at a karaoke night or the comfort of your own living room, the right musical karaoke song can transport you to a world of emotions and narratives that speak to the heart.

But why stop at performing alone? When there are so many excellent musical karaoke songs out there! 

Over the decades, there have been 300 musicals performed on Broadway alone, which makes choosing a list of 20 songs slightly difficult!

All you need is an at-home karaoke machine to practise before you hit a Lucky Voice karaoke bar and wow a captive audience. So, cue the spotlight, warm up your vocal cords, and let's explore the top 20 karaoke songs from musicals that are sure to make your karaoke night an unforgettable experience.

Why do we love musicals?

Musicals have the power to capture our hearts and imagination in a way that no other form of entertainment can. They combine music, dance, and storytelling to create a unique and captivating experience that allows us to escape reality for just a little while. The songs from musicals are often catchy, emotional, and powerful – making them perfect for karaoke sessions where you can let your inner star shine.

How to choose the perfect musical karaoke song

With so many amazing musicals and songs to choose from, it can be overwhelming to pick just one for your karaoke night. Here are a few tips to help you narrow down your options and select the perfect song to sing karaoke better:

  • Consider your vocal range: Make sure the song you choose matches your vocal range and abilities. There's no point in attempting a difficult soprano song if your voice is better suited for lower registers.
  • Think about the theme: What kind of emotion or story do you want to convey with your karaoke performance? Choose a song that aligns with your mood or the overall vibe of the night and dress up for the occasion!
  • Know your audience: Are you singing in front of a group of friends or at a karaoke bar? Keep in mind the preferences and tastes of your audience when selecting a song.
