Enjoy musical nights at home with these great deals on karaoke machines and speakers


THE X Factor would normally be keeping us entertained in the run-up to Christmas – but not this year.

The ITV show’s cancellation, owing to Covid, need not leave you singing the blues, though, because you can still stage pop-tastic nights at home.

Enjoy musical nights at home with these deals on karaoke machines and speakers

These savings hit the high notes for me . . . 

CHEAP AS HITS: Karaoke machines can cost nearly £200 but there is no need to spend that much to make like an X Factor contestant. Head to Argos, where the RockJam SingCube is currently just £30, down from the usual £40. It connects to your mobile and has a light show that moves in time with your music. Very cool, if you ask me.

SAVE: About £170 on karaoke machine

MIC A SAVING: Pump up the volume with a karaoke microphone. The Mi

Mic Karaoke Speaker Mic, £28 at Argos, also serves as a speaker and can connect to any compatible Bluetooth device. If you buy via Quidco, as a new member you can get a £5 cashback bonus.

SAVE: £5

LIGHTBULB MOMENT: Sometimes, all you need for a singalong is decorations, YouTube and a hairbrush. But I love the £10 Satzuma Disco Bulb, which can temporarily replace your regular one on the lounge ceiling to create a nightclub vibe. It works out much cheaper than a professional set-up, or even standing disco lights such as the Tinc Plug In Party Boogie Light, £17.50 at John Lewis.

SAVE: £7.50

SONG AND DANCE: Channel The X Factor’s groups by practising your routine on a dance mat. You can buy state-of-the-art ones for around £60 but there are great retro Noughties versions on Amazon, for as little as £18.44.

SAVE: Approx £49 on a dance mat

Cadbury’s hot chocolate is only £2 at Asda
But Asda’s own-brand will set you back £2.48
