Most people are scared of karaoke because they don't think they're any good at singing. They're probably right.

But (with the right amount of alcohol and a few good friends) after a long day, you'll be surprised how good you'll feel after belting out Bon Jovi's "It's My Life" for a bunch of strangers.

So, whether you're looking to practice for American Idol tryouts or just want to let loose for a night, look no further than this list of local karaoke nights.
