Go Gaga for Karaoke on Your iPhone

Fans of Lady Gaga and karaoke can rejoice. There's now an iPhone/iPod Touch app that satisfies both of those cravings. The Lady Gaga iOKi features four songs from the oddly compelling pop star including new single "Bad Romance" from her upcoming album "Fame Monster". The app turns yours your Apple device into a mini-karaoke machine complete with themes, images, and video of Lady Gaga.

Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter said, "The Lady Gaga Karaoke app is a great way for her fans to experience the music in a non-traditional way. We constantly look for new ways that allow her community of fans to interact with each other with the music as the centerpiece, and gridMob nailed it."

According to the press release iOki is the " first true karaoke experience for iPhone and iPod Touch", Created by gribMob, iOKi lets users purchase karaoke fodder directly within the application making the company the first to have a karaoke-track store for iPhone and iPod Touch. gridMOB has licensed deals in place with EMI, Disney, Sony, and Universal Music Group, just to name a few. These partnerships ensure that iOki users will have a rich catalog of music to sing over when they're in the mood to sing badly or loudly over their favorite songs. Users can search for track in a number of ways including artist, title, genre, gender, or era.

Available in English, Korean, Chinese, and Japanese, the Lady Gaga iOki will be available in the iTunes app store for $4.99. Don't be surprised to see iOki apps featuring more of your favorite music artists. As the music industry and artists take more control of their brand this is a great way to get music into the hands of people that normally might not listen to their music as well as rabid fans. I have a question though. Does this mean that people will be randomly breaking out into song in highly inappropriate places?

Want to see the app in action? Check it out on YouTube.

Nice app!

But I'm waiting for the Karaoke Channel App which I was told will be released before Christmas. I've seen the app and it will feature many more songs from many top artists. And the karaoke videos look awesome.
