While the history of karaoke is still somewhat obscure, most people believe it was founded about 40 years ago in the city of Kobe, one of the three largest cities in Japan.  Others believe it started long before in the 1950's and 60's with American TV, following a bouncing ball across the TV screen.  In a since you could say it was simply a "sing-a-long".

When Japan introduced it as "kara-oke" its name was born.  One story claims a snack bar in Kobe asked if people wanted to sing because their entertainer didn't show up.

Karaoke was only in Japan for the first 20 years but has now spread throughout the world making "Karaoke" an international entertainment.
