Kicking off our karaoke extravaganza is the one and only Backstreet Boys! Their signature song, ‘I Want It That Way’ is like a musical time machine that transports you straight to the ’90s. It’s a crowd-pleaser that’ll have you and your friends harmonising like you’re in your very own boy band (bonus points for all white fits and air grabbing). Much like the band, this song revives again and again!
Next up, we’ve got BTS, the South Korean global sensation that’s taken the world and X (Twitter) by storm. ‘Dynamite’ is an explosion of energy and fun, and it’s impossible not to groove to this karaoke track when its infectious beat is ‘cha-ching like money’! So, get ready to dance and sing like nobody’s watching!

Now this next boy band needs no introduction! Our fave X Factor boys, One Direction, still melt us on a daily basis, and their tender and heartwarming 2012 track ‘Little Things’ is no exception. A karaoke song all about appreciating the quirks and charms of your loved ones, it’s the perfect group sing-along that’ll leave everyone feeling warm and fuzzy.
Boyz II Men’s ‘End Of The Road’ is an R&B classic that’s as smooth as butter. A song that demands to be belted out and harmonised with your besties, it’s the ultimate karaoke bonding experience! You can try asking us to stop singing it on repeat, but we just can’t let goooooo of this Grammy winning classic!

It’s time to unleash your inner rockstar with the Jonas Brothers’ ‘Sucker’. The boys are always back in town, so don’t be a Frankie and get involved! This song is like a sugar rush for your vocal cords, and it’s perfect for a high-energy karaoke sesh that’ll get everyone in the room pumped up.
Let’s float on cloud nine with Westlife’s chart-topping ‘Flying Without Wings’. Managed by X Factor judge Louis Walsh, this Dublin boy band are true Irish powerhouses.

Remember those iconic dance moves from *NSYNC? (Ok mostly from Justin – we’re not blushing, you are). Well, now’s your chance to show them off on the karaoke stage! One of the boy band’s biggest hits, this go to 00s pop classic will have you grooving and singing your heart out.
Quick get ‘em! They are The Wanted! ‘Glad You Came’ is a feel-good anthem from the British boys who just wanted to let you know they were glad you came. This underrated karaoke song is a low-key banger that’ll have everyone in the room smiling and singing-along.
Take a trip down memory lane with Puerto Rican boy band Menudo’s ‘If You’re Not Here (By My Side)’. Sing it with all the passion of a heartbroken teenager from the ’80s, that’s right – we’re talking leg warmers on and Walkmans on loud. This is a great karaoke song that’s fun and nostalgic, and like the members of Menudo you can switch up who’s singing over and over again.

Let’s slow things down a bit with The Script’s ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’. This song’s storytelling lyrics and acoustic vibe are perfect for a more intimate and emotional karaoke moment. Another set of Irish heartstoppers, the Scripts’ songs have really endured the test of time.
Simple Plan’s ‘Perfect’ is an emotional rollercoaster that’ll tug at your heartstrings. No seriously, We think we cry every time we sing along to this karaoke track. And that’s all we have to say on the matter. Thank you very much!
‘The Reason’ by Hoobastank is a powerhouse ballad that’ll let you show off your vocal chops. Sing it like you’re headlining a stadium concert and watch as the audience goes wild! But always remember that Hoobastank might be the worst band name ever devised.

When it comes to boy band karaoke songs, there’s nothing more perfect than 5SOS’ infectious ‘She Looks So Perfect’. This song is like a burst of sunshine, and it’ll leave everyone in high spirits. This Australian band knows how to produce a catchy earworm tune. On a side note, we miss our American Apparel underwear… so comfy and reliable.
For a dose of Filipino boy band nostalgia, Mayonnaise’s ‘Jopay’ is a karaoke must-sing. Channel your inner Pinoy dreamboat and prepare to serenade like a true OPM superstar! And if you haven’t heard it, trust us it’s a bangerrrrrrrr!
And last but not least, wind down your karaoke night with The Neighbourhood’s ‘Sweater Weather’. This indie-pop gem is perfect for a chill and relaxed vibe as you bid farewell to an epic night of singing (and waking up the whole Neighbourhood).
