‘Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough’: 10 Rockin’ Onscreen Karaoke Moments
Did you know it’s National Karaoke Week? Yes, that’s right folks: there’s an actual holiday for the old pastime of picking up the microphone, watching the screen and singing along to your favorite songs, whether or not you’re really good, really bad, or just okay. That’s what karaoke is ALL about!
And karaoke isn’t just your parents’ idea of Saturday night plans anymore, that’s for sure. It’s a great way to test someone’s humor, to bring people together (or tear them apart!) and to judge if they’re really good (or really bad!) enough to make it on American Idol.
In honor of this awesome holiday, here are 10 rockin’ onscreen karaoke moments:
RUSH HOUR 2
Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) sings MJ’s “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough”
