New Year’s Eve is one of the most beloved and expected holidays. Not least, it provides many brilliant opportunities to organize a great singing party. In this copy, we are going to share a few tips on how to throw a killer New Year’s Eve karaoke party. That’ll be an event to remember!
Make a Holiday Playlist
It would be very wise of you to think ahead and create a New Year’s Eve karaoke playlist in advance. Alternatively, you can use the advantages of ready-made playlist by Studio Evolution. When preparing a playlist, keep in mind that the New Year’s Eve is a special event when people prefer to sing the same special, traditional songs. In most cases, those are old-school hits and movie songs. For your party, choose only songs that are well known to your potential guests so they could enjoy singing.

Now, let’s face the fact: sooner or later during the party, some peeps will definitely try to sing “touching” songs. In some cases, you will be lucky enough to hear a performance that will remind you of the early Cannibal Corpse. Sure thing, it’s a healthy situation. Nevertheless, it would be better to keep everything organized and leave all the hard work to a KJ or host. As for performances that are way too personal, keep them for an after-party.
If there are children at your party, and they have to go to bed early, here’s a good idea for you: put the hands of the clock forward. And when the clock strikes “midnight”, start hugging, throwing paper streamers, and wish each other happiness. After the kids have their dessert, you can send them to bed. This little trick will allow kids to enjoy having the real New Year’s Eve party with adults, without breaking the rules.

Organize a karaoke contest
There are many amusing karaoke contests that will perfectly amuse a company of any age and will not require much effort. If you know friends or family members well enough, you can try and select karaoke tracks for everyone, in advance. The point is, those tracks have to be 100% irrelevant for the contestants’ tastes. Finally, the savviest and artistic person wins the competition.
Set up a karaoke battle and sing the most famous New Year’s Eve hits. We bet there’s a couple of people among your friends who are brave enough to take a microphone and do their best to ding the Happy New Year song even better than ABBA. C’mon, just give those bravehearts a chance!
Before you start singing solo, it would be nice to sing a few songs altogether. That will help people relax and get in the mood for karaoke. After all, some of your dearest and nearest may not feel comfy joining the contest. Cheer them up with your applause. Sing along with your friends and family members to make them feel right. And who cares that someone sings not in time to the music. It’s your New Year’s Eve party, so you make the rules! As for those happy fellows who own the EVOBOX karaoke system, they can enjoy a live performance with the unique LiveFX effect.
You can also try to play team games. Split into groups, turn away from the TV set and try to guess the title of the currently playing song. The first person who calls the song title first gets a point. The team with the highest score gets the right to choose a karaoke tracks the losing team has to sing. Moreover, only one member of the team will sing. The others will be his/her backup dancers.
Now, here’s the most joyful contest: everyone has to act like a well-known start. The point is to get into character and sing a song recreating the image of a famous performer as realistically as possible. Use as many “iconic features” as you can. Those include easily-recognizable facial expressions, pronunciation, characteristic body movements, and anything else you can recall to mind. So, a broom can easily turn into a phony guitar, and good makeup will perfectly complement the image of a star. The participant who receives a standing ovation for his/her performance wins the contest.
No matter how fiery the contests are, there is nothing like singing together. Forget about all those TV shows and concerts that have become painfully familiar. Enjoy having fun with the most amazing musicians and artists around you. Use your voice to strike a spark out of the New Year’s Eve!
