Karaoke singers just can’t Let It Go

Let It Go from the hit Disney film Frozen has been named the year’s most popular song in a poll of karaoke crooners.
Two different versions of the song, recorded by Idina Menzel and Demi Lovato, feature in the movie which became the highest-grossing animated film of all time, taking £644.5 million at the box office worldwide.
Its popularity has seen it named the year’s best-selling DVD and album by Amazon, while other items flying off the shelves include Frozen-themed toothbrushes, nail art and umbrellas.
Lovato’s version was released as a single but failed to make the UK Top 40, though Menzel’s version got to number 11.
The song accounted for 15% of the 3.5 million songs sung this year by users of Lucky Voice Online Karaoke, well ahead of its nearest rival which was Happy by Pharrell Williams.
Other popular choices include Roar by Katy Perry, Clean Bandit’s chart-topping hit Rather Be, Someone Like You and Make You Feel My Love by Adele.
Summer Nights, sung by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in Grease, Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey, Bon Jovi’s Livin’ On A Prayer and Dolly Parton’s Jolene round out the top ten list.
The company’s managing director, Nick Thistleton, said: “We’ve never seen a song dominate like this – even the likes of Adele and Katy Perry don’t come close to the popularity of Let It Go.
“Not only this, but we’ve seen a whole host of new Lucky Voice Online Karaoke customers as a result of adding this song. Let it Go might have failed to set the singles charts alight, but it’s a clear winner as far as karaoke-loving Brits are concerned.”
