In years past, Oscar-winning songs became so popular that they live on in karoake bars to this day, for better or worse (usually the latter). Between Seth MacFarlane's Ted theme, Adele's sultry "Skyfall" and the Les Misérables original tune "Suddenly," which of this year's Best Original Song nominees will earn a second life behind the karaoke mic?
The 85th Annual Academy Awards telecast hosted by Seth MacFarlane will air live on ABC Sunday February 24th at 4pmPST/7pmEST. Live performers include Norah Jones, Adele and Barbra Streisand.
Lose Yourself - Eminem (2002; Jeff Bass, Luis Resto, Eminem)
Eminem's 8 Mile anthem is practically tailored for karaoke; it is, after all, an ode to the pre-performance jitters. Rap is usually a safe bet here, since the vocalist doesn't have to worry about staying on pitch. As long as you bring your posse on stage while sporting an extra-large hoodie, you've got this song in the bag.
