Sunday was our first experience going to a KTV in China. KTV is another name for karaoke and is very popular in China. The KTV we went to was called Dongfang. The building had many levels with rooms of all different sizes for guest to rent out and sing karaoke in. Some Chinese students came along with us and we rented a room for about three hours. I am a horrible singer but I still really enjoyed listening to everyone else sing and talking with the Chinese students. We sang some Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys songs and I was surprised to see that some of the Chinese students knew the words to the American songs. Many of the Chinese students also sang Chinese songs for us and I thought they were really good. They showed me what songs were really popular and songs they used to like and it was interesting to see what kind of music is popular in China. Lisa told me she usually goes to a KTV two or three times a month with all of her friends. I think it would be fun if there were KTVs in America.
