The Singing Machine Bluetooth Karaoke System, in both white and black: Was $74.99, now $51.99

  • Easy to use

  • Solid sound for the price

  • Multiple audio input options

In the category of “things you didn’t know you need, but you do,” include your own personal karaoke machine. Setup is not too complicated; we figured it out easily. Folks who love karaoke will have no trouble working with this. And you won’t have trouble getting the songs you need: The machine has a few different options to pull in music and karaoke-specific tracks. Folks who hate karaoke actually love watching others sing karaoke. It entertains everyone.

The Singing Machine's 54 LED disco lights (and a built-in dimmer switch) give you control over how aggressive the party gets, and Bluetooth compatibility alongside a separate Singing Machine app option allow multiple ways to configure your singing setup.

If you are getting this for a special occasion or event, purchase it with enough time to check your setup — you may need an inexpensive cord to connect to your television, and you will want to ensure you have the songs you need, whether via your own collection, a karaoke app, CD or YouTube. Pro tip: Ask guests for their karaoke favorite ahead of time and make sure to have those, and other reliably popular sing-along tunes, at the ready. Worried about everyone getting along at Thanksgiving dinner? Remember that people can’t fight about politics if they are busy singing. — Sarah Stevens Buy now
