"Singstar" is a game made for consoles that enables the player to sing karaoke to a wide variety of songs. The PC equivalent of "Singstar" is called "UltraStar Deluxe" and is an open source product that can be played with multiple people with a variety of different songs that are downloadable from the Internet. With a few quick downloads it's simple to get started playing "UltraStar Deluxe" on the PC to satisfy your "Singstar" cravings.
