Everyone thinks they can belt out a karaoke tune but did you know it originated in Japan back in 1971?
An orchestra went on strike and a machine was used instead to play the music.
It has since transcended all over the world, including the city of Nottingham. Here are the top 5 places for you to enjoy karaoke, according to Tripadvisor.
