How to MC a virtual karaoke party
You’ll need a great host for your virtual karaoke session. The host’s role is to encourage the virtual team, handle the technical logistics, ensure swift transitions between singers, and keep the party moving.
You’ll need an energetic and tech-savvy MC to host the event
If you are going to host the karaoke session yourself, here are some questions you’ll need to think about:
Will I ask the participants to prepare song selections beforehand, or to find them during the session?
Who will choose the order of performers? If there is a KJ (a karaoke DJ) then they can keep track of this in the chat
Does everyone have access to Zoom or Google Meet as well as YouTube?
How will I maintain the energy of the session?
What will I do if no one volunteers to sing?
