TikTok Users Are Singing Karaoke Songs Together With Hilarious Results

TikTok users have been hosting cross-Atlantic duets and singalongs to viral songs thanks to the music app Smule.

Smule was first launched in 2012 under the name Sing! Karaoke, and was made popular for its ability to allow users to duet with their favorite artists. Readers may remember seeing people sing "Flashlight" with Jessie J all over the internet in 2015. While singers like Charlie Puth and Ed Sheeran also had their own duets available too.

Now, TikTok users have discovered a far more entertaining feature on the app—singing with one another, even if you're not necessarily vocally blessed.

With most songs available on the app, users can either join in on live karaoke sessions or add their vocals to already existing ones. "#Smule" currently has over 127 million views on TikTok, and various videos have gone viral with hilarious recordings of singing attempts.

TikTok user @m1chaelceraluvr shared her attempt at a duet with a fellow Michael Cera fan's recording on Smule, amassing over 100,000 views.

Singing along to "Motion Sickness" by Phoebe Bridgers, the recording captured Smule user @michaelcerafckr surprisingly burping halfway through singing. "I'm sorry," they apologized straight after.

The user, amused by the incident, can be heard laughing. "Who is this fellow Michael Cera stan who burped? I need to know."

"This convinced me to download the app," wrote a TikTok user in the comments.

"I literally had to pause this to go duet with her," added another.

Meanwhile, fans of boy band One Direction used the power of TikTok to host a large singalong on Smule to "Fireproof." TikTok user @tpwkbyalba first shared the recording in a video on May 27, showing only 24 singers partaking in the karaoke session.

Just a day later, @harrystylescherry updated the TikTok karaoke, with 85 singers who were added to the recording. On May 29, another user @annabarcelonanarry posted a TikTok of the group singing session with 657 people having joined, gaining over 100,000 likes.

"There's nothing like singing One Direction with a bunch of strangers from around the globe. I have never smiled so much. Also the random talking between lines is so sweet," they captioned the video.

Now, the group karaoke boasts over 2,000 singers who have lent their voice to the recording.
