, is a form of interactive entertainment or video game developed in Japan in which an amateur singer sings along with recorded music (a music video) using a microphone.
The music is typically an instrumental version of a well-known popular song.
Inoue, a drummer, was frequently asked by guests in the Utagoe Kissa where he performed to provide recordings of his performances so that they could sing along.

Lyrics are usually displayed on a video screen, along with a moving symbol, changing color, or music video images, to guide the singer.
In several Asian countries such as China, Cambodia or the Philippines, a karaoke box is called a KTV.
In the late 1960s and into the 1970s, stored audible materials began to dominate the music recording industry and revolutionized the portability and ease of use of band and instrumental music by musicians and entertainers as the demand for entertainers increased globally.
This may have been attributable to the introduction of music cassette tapes, technology that arose from the need to customize music recordings and the desire for a "handy" format that would allow fast and convenient duplication of music and thereby meet the requirements of the entertainers' lifestyles and the 'footloose' character of the entertainment industry.
The karaoke-styled machine was invented by Japanese musician Daisuke Inoue, although the audio company Clarion was the first commercial producer of the machine due to there being no patent.
In Japan, it has long been common to provide musical entertainment at a dinner or a party.
Dance floors and lighting effects are also becoming common sights in karaoke bars.
Lyrics are often displayed on multiple television screens around the bar.
Most karaoke machines have technology that electronically changes the pitch of the music so that amateur singers can choose a key that is appropriate for their vocal range, while maintaining the original tempo of the song.
