Our top Karaoke Duets picks:

Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – Shallow 

Shallow has become a timeless classic in 2018, providing an exquisite karaoke duet for couples – especially those who are star-crossed lovers! However, be prepared to give it your all vocally as Lady Gaga dominates the song with her powerful singing for two-thirds of it.

Elton John & Kiki Dee – Don’t Go Breaking My Heart

This duet song is an ideal choice to start warming up a crowd with. It is relatively easy to sing and great fun. With not much of a vocal range, it doesn’t require too much effort to make the song sound decent. Don’t Go Breaking My Heart is an excellent selection for our list of best duet karaoke songs.

Aladdin & Jasmine – A Whole New World 

What could be better than combining Disney and a karaoke duet? It’s like peanut butter and chocolate! Jasmine’s key changes may be difficult, but if you just put on your best ‘Disney Princess’ voice, you’ll nail it. Don’t forget to find a rug to sit on for extra points!

Queen & David Bowie – Under Pressure 

This unique duet, Under Pressure, features two male vocalists – a great option for couples who want to avoid the typical boy/girl love song. It’s one of the greatest karaoke duets of all time and just so enjoyable to sing and dance along to! If you put your leg up on a table and throw your head back, you can channel Freddie Mercury’s energy in no time.

Grease – Summer Nights

Start a karaoke duet song battle with a team of friends for an unforgettable time! Not only will you be having fun, but you can also challenge each other to see who can hold the high note at the end the longest. This is a great way to enjoy singing and dancing while also getting different people involved in the activity. It’s sure to be an amazing experience!

Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello – I Know What You Did Last Summer 

We just can’t get enough of this duet! It’s a rarity to find two newbies in the pop music scene joining forces and creating such an amazing track with an incredible beat.

Diana Ross & Lionel Ritchie – Endless Love 

No doubt, this one is a challenge, but it’s an iconic duet and must be tackled. You don’t need to have exceptional talent, just the drive to get through it and do justice to Lionel Richie’s voluminous 80s curls. After all, that’s what karaoke is all about.

Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder – Ebony & Ivory 

It was no surprise that the collaboration between two of the greatest rock stars of our time resulted in one of the best karaoke duets ever! Ebony & Ivory brings an incredible amount of joy and is surprisingly easy to sing.

Jay Z & Alicia Keys – Empire State Of Mind 

Beware: this duet is truly remarkable, but it can be quite challenging to master. Alicia Keys’ vocals are incredibly strong and you’ll likely only recall half of Jay-Z’s rap lyrics!

Ewan McGregor & Nicole Kidman – Come What May 

If you’re a fan of romantic music, then Moulin Rouge! was an absolute game-changer. Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman’s duet is so powerful that it’s guaranteed to make you feel all the feels. While you may not have their acting abilities, your vocals can definitely give them a run for their money when singing this song! Karaoke is all about giving it your best effort, so don’t be afraid to put your heart into it and have some fun!


No matter what type of music you’re into, there are plenty of great karaoke duets to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a classic love song or a modern hit, these are some of the best songs for karaoke duets. So grab a friend and get ready to show off your singing skills!
