Long-time karaoke enthusiast know of a wonderful game, sometimes called “karaoke roulette” or “kamikaze karaoke”, that puts the singer onstage with no idea what song is about to play. Often done as a lark between friends, a KJ-sponsored show segment, or even a contest, it’s a great way for folks to face the terrifying prospect of looking a little bit foolish, and being okay with it.

Dan Kois, a senior editor at Slate, was asked to curate at exhibition at a New York art gallery in Tribeca. His contribution, titled “SCARYOKE!!!” and based on karaoke roulette, opens today and runs through December 21. Read about his inspiration for the exhibit, and reasons why we should all try karaoke roulette at least once here.

You can check out the playlist of the kamikaze songs here. If you can’t make it to New York before Christmas to try it yourself, then we dare you to sing this song right now, no matter where you are!
