My sister in law brought the American Idol Karaoke Revolution game to my daughter’s birthday party. We were all giddy over the concept – especially my SIL because she had played it before.
Description of video game on the box:

I went first and was told to go with the Spice Girls first. I began the game by choosing single play where I would get judged by Paula, Randy, and Simon. Afterwards I was able to choose my player. This player is fully customizable. I decided to make mine be over the top with her clothes with a fun beanie hat and black hair and a white stripe (think of Rogue from X-Men). Next I got to choose where I would be singing. I picked the idol audition stage because it made me think of the current auditions going on.
After a quick microphone check I was off and ready to sing. I broke it down with my girl who was dancing up a storm to the intro music. Next I embarrassed myself by singing and dancing in front of a group of people – thankfully they were my family members! I know I did horrendous but Randy, Paula and even Simon (!) thought my performance was top notch.
Soon we will be doing duets!
Here are some examples of songs on this great Wii game which includes songs from the 60s to today:
- Big Girls Don’t Cry – Fergie
- YMCA by the Village People
- Who Knew by Pink
- Eye of the Tiger by Survivor
- RocketMan by Elton John
- My Happy Ending by Avril Lavigne
Karaoke Revolutions Presents: American Idol Encore 2 was purchased at Best Buy, though almost any electronics store will carry it. It was approx. $50.00 including a microphone which can be used on other games. Such as Guitar Hero: World Tour. This can also be purchased for XBOX 360 or Playstation 3 – on these gaming platforms you can even download songs.
We will certainly be looking to add this video game to our current collection.
It makes the best party game for large groups.
Are you ready to be the next American Idol?
