15 Celebs' Go-To Karaoke Songs
''I don't have a go-to song because in our family, you get the karaoke on and you go. Whatever shows up [on the screen], you gotta do it.''
'''Wanted Dead or Alive' would be one of them. That was a good number. How wrong can you really go with Bon Jovi? Or maybe some Duran Duran. Or I'd go back to the childhood and so some Beatles or Stones.''
'''Don't Stop Believin'' by Journey. I Love that friggin song. It's rock but it's inspiring. I'm not sure I do it justice but I love it. And a couple of drinks in and you're good anyway. You just gotta belt it out.''
''I usually go to 'Hit Me With Your Best Shot' and I get all my girls up with me on stage. I don't like to sing karaoke on my own because it becomes too perfect. I aim to be sloppy and crazy. Karoake should be sloppy, otherwise it is not fun.''
'''Don't Stop Believin'' because in Rock Of Ages, my character wrote that song and if only that was even half true in real life, I would be set for life. I also like to sing 'Superstition' by Stevie Wonder. I do karaoke with my friends from time to time because I love singing. I am always singing. Everyone around me enough tells me to shut up.''
''No doubt I have to do some Aerosmith 'Walk This Way.' I can nail that one. And if I am really hammered, I will try to do Journey which is a disaster because his voice is so high. But by then I feel like I'm nailing it and that's all that matters.''
'''Midnight Train to Georgia.' That is my favorite song of all time. I had Gladys Knight sing it at my wedding. I am a huge Gladys Knight fan. I could never be as good as my Gladys.''
'''The Wonder of You' by Elvis just because of the grandeur.''
Mary J. Blige
''I have never done karaoke. But if I find myself in a position to do it, I would probably do 'Rolling in the Deep' by Adele. That song is just amazing. It's the kind of song you wish you wrote.''
''I have an aversion to karaoke because people go and are really, really good singers, too good, and it drives me crazy. It isn't supposed to sound perfect at a karaoke bar. The only way I will do it is if my friends and I pick each other's songs. No one is allowed to pick their own song. But if I have to pick my own, I choose something I know I'm not going to do very well like a rap song. Like an Eminem song from 8 Mile or 50 Cent or something crazy. It's awful but that makes it so much more fun.''
Director Adam Shankman
'''Waiting for a Girl Like You.' It's a classic and everyone can sing along because everyone knows the chorus.''
''First let me clarify that I like karaoke done only in karaoke bars. I don't like when people do karaoke on stage and pretend that they are really singing. 'Magic' by Pilot. Do you know the song? [He starts singing] Oh oh oh it's magic you know, never believe it's not so. Then you do the clapping for the bridge. You have to do the clapping part. That really sells it to the audience.''
Phil Collen of Def Leppard
''I got thrown under the bus a couple of times in Asia. They found out I was in a band and made me get up to do karaoke. I looked through the catalog and chose Bryan Adams. I figured I could do it but as I got into it I remembered that there was a really high bit in the middle. I was getting really scared but I made it through unscathed for the most part. So I now turn to Bryan Adams whenever called upon. He's cool. I can admit I am a fan of Bryan Adams.''
Rick Allen, Def Leppard
''I do 'Pour Some Sugar on Me,' not very successfully, mind you. But I figure if you give anyone enough alcohol, they will attempt just about any song. And conversely, if you give people enough alcohol, they will listen to any song and remember it fondly.''
Derek Hough, Dancing With the Stars
''I haven't done it in years but I have done Eminem when I want to show off my rap skills, which are pretty terrible, atrocious. But after I've had a drink or two, I think I'm amazing. I'm like, 'Hold up, Slim Derek is coming up.'''
