you know, it's weird / wild

personally, i can't remember any karaoke night that i've hosted that DIDN'T end on a so-called 'right' karaoke song.

like, every single show i do/done for over a decade, always ends on the 'right' or decent karaoke song. and my shows are spontaneous.

or my karaoke nights typically ends on the so-called 'right' note. like, the last singer/last song always provides that genuine closure, provides that moment of coming full circle. and it's never planned.

can y'all relate out there? it's something i've noticed/marveled at, recently. even sometimes the crowd will chime in and say, "no, we can't end like that..." and they're usually right. i'll put up one more singer, and that final singer will end the night perfectly--everything comes full circle.

btw, nothing against it, but i'm not one of the KJs who plays a final song to end karaoke. my shows typically ends on any random singer getting the last word. and it's never an awkward ending. even if it's that person's first time singing all night or they're a karaoke virgin. it always just seems to end on the right foot.

do karaoke shows end on a bad note? and i don't necessarily count karaoke nights where there's a fight that kills the show or you know an unforseen disaster. i'm talking about a typical karaoke night. they seem to typically end with closure, no?

I would ALWAYS plan for the closing song to be a GROUP EFFORT that would include everyone in the crowd and as many onstage as possible.....usuallly have group sing of "WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS" so everyone goes home feeling happy and content.

I think it's important for a night to have a specific, definitive end. I don't care for nights that stop and start with false finishes. To that end, I always finish my nights with Sinatras' "My Way". I like the song, it has a certain relevance for me, it's a crowd pleaser that the audience likes to join in on and once I sing it, they know that's it. Time to go home.

We almost always finish with a group song... The last two evenings ended with "The Weight" by The Band, and The Foundations "Build Me Up Buttercup". I'll sometimes throw in the Roy Rogers theme "Happy Trails" or an edited version of The Spaniels' "Goodnight Sweetheart".

So many, Lion Sleeps Tonight, Papa Was A Rolling Stone long song but they can pass mics' around , Bohemian Rhapsody if no one has sang it, are a few others. If no one wants to get up then I sing Bocelli's Time To Say Goodbye in Italian.

Then I'll play 3 dance tunes while I'm cleaning other stuff up. After that with a loud voice 'Money for the Jukebox'.

I end with whoever gets the last song. Part of it is because I pretty much am not in the rotation at the time, the other part if it's a new singer is that it gives the new singer a chance to sing. I try to give anyone who wants to sing a chance to sing. My requests cut off is basically for singers who have already sang during the night. I will keep the rotation open for singers who haven't sung until there's absolutely no time left.

I have a singer that comes in late (after Midnight, I close out at 1A) because of his work and I will sometimes get him up for the closing song that no one has a problem with even if it is not his turn, probably because everyone loves it and the girls will dance to it, Los Lobos' La Bamba. The singer is from Peru.

For my part, I just couldn't do that. When I tell a singer no, I'm full, it's because I'm full. And after I tell one person I'm full, I tell anyone else who asks that I'm full. Because I'm full.

If the singer who has been there 3 or 3 1/2 hours wants to put in a request, I'll take that request if I still have room for even one more song. How many times they sang before is irrelevant. I am not saving that spot for someone who might walk in later, or who already may be in the room but hasn't put in a request yet. First come first served means something.

From talking to customers, I get the feeling most of them have never been to another show where, if the KJ accepts your request, that means you are singing it. Always. 100%. No exceptions unless the power goes out or the earth opens.

And no matter how late it gets, how close to closing, my regulars with songs in never leave. Because they know if I took their song, they're going to get to sing it without being bumped for any late arrival, not even Prince if god sent him back for one more song. I'd extend the show for Prince and let him sing last, but I wouldn't bump anyone.
