For some of us out here, a party ain’t a party if there’s no karaoke. Almost all of us have gotten up and sung – or done something like singing – in front of a bunch of strangers at some point. I mean, really, who doesn’t love howling their favorite song on a night out? But for those horrifying moments when you’re not close to a karaoke bar, we’ve put together a list of the best karaoke apps for Android to save the day. This means you’ll have no excuse not to break out your favorite Shakira song at the next birthday party you go to – and all from your smartphone or tablet.

Sing! Karaoke by Smule

One of the most popular of all the karaoke apps due to its enormous user base and huge number of songs. It’s got all your standard social features like being able to make friends and “Like” their videos, plus – probably its most notable feature – sing tracks together with other people. This month the app’s gone viral thanks to this video, which is a great example of how some artists upload videos of themselves singing so you can add yourself to their sessions. [Download]

Yokee: Karaoke Sing and Record

This karaoke app for Android devices makes use of YouTube to offer a gargantuan number of songs categorized by decade and style. This makes finding the song you’re dying to sing a simple task. This app skips the social options to focus on a brilliant karaoke experience. We might say it’s got too many ads compared to the competition, but its functionality makes it shine anyway. [Download]

Red Karaoke

The possibilities offered by Red Karaoke are wide-ranging since, besides its huge list of songs, it’s got several singing modes: solo, sing-along (with lyric videos provided by the artists), and duet (where another person can sing alongside you in the future). Its Material Design-esque interface is one of its strong points. [Download]

The Voice

People who watch this popular reality show are in luck with this app, and luckily not just them. The Voice is an excellent karaoke app with quite a hefty social component that lets you imitate the program judges when you see a performance. A shame that you always see the face of who’s singing before turning your chair around. A fun app to sing the biggest hits of the moment. [Download]

Gaao Bollywood & Hindi Karaoke

Karaoke app developers haven’t forgotten all of us Bollywood fans: this app is chockful of the most popular songs from one of the world’s most prolific cinema hubs. This niche app has got nothing to envy the best karaoke apps anywhere, though obviously people who don’t follow Hindi cinema are likely to be completely lost here. [Download]

musiXmatch Lyrics Player

This app might well owe its success to the fact that it lets you view song lyrics on your phone, but it’s also got a sort of karaoke mode to sing along with your favorite songs. It may not be specifically karaoke-oriented, but its high level of compatibility with programs like Spotify and its huge array of song lyrics make it a great app to have handy. Not another app on this illustrious list has more lyrics available. [Download]
