Whether you want to evoke feelings of nostalgia or simply hope to get everyone dancing, there’s a Britney Spears track to fit the occasion. How can you choose the perfect songs for your situation? You don’t want to spend all day hunting down tracks for your playlist.
Like a large number of people my age, I first heard Britney Spears’ music when I was very young—probably six years old at the oldest. Everyone wanted to listen to Britney Spears when I was a kid; most girls wanted to be her. I’ve seen all of Spears’ musical eras and the ways that her music has evolved over the years and throughout her many heartbreaking personal struggles.
As a result, I’ve got you covered for your next karaoke gig with 20 of the best Britney Spears karaoke songs for any type of singer or audience! I’ll also go over some tips for your next performance, which we’ll get into right now.
Karaoke Tips For Your Next Performance
Before we get into the song list, let’s take a look at some tips to help you improve your karaoke performance. Even the most skilled of singers can benefit from some careful planning before each performance. Here are a few of the tips I like to follow before I sing for the best results:
- Practice in advance. Make sure you know your chosen songs well and enjoy singing them. Even one practice run-through can help you figure out how to handle any rough spots. You can even have some fun working on your dance moves!
- Get into your performance. While your practicing your songs, make sure you feel enthused. If you are bored with your performance, your audience will definitely pick up on that feeling. Everyone will have a better time if you feel confident and enjoy yourself on stage.
- Drink plenty of water. Make sure to keep a water bottle nearby while singing to avoid dehydration. It’s not good for your health or your singing. Avoiding alcohol can also help.
- Don’t eat a big meal. Heavy, greasy, fatty food will not help you sing well. The last time I tried to sing after a large meal (which was on Thanksgiving), I felt pretty unwell during and after my performance. Try not to eat a large meal right before heading on stage.
- Pick songs that work for you. If you have to go outside your favorite genre or your favorite singer’s catalog to find a song that works for your skill level or vocal range, do so. You will be broadening your musical horizons while highlighting your voice at its most powerful.
Now that you know how to prepare for the best performance ever, you can head on stage with confidence. Let’s look at 20 of the best Britney Spears karaoke songs to round out your karaoke prep!
