The online Karaoke song library JOYSOUND was the first to feature Vocaloid songs to their lineup in Japan, and as of August the total number of Vocaloid songs in the JOYSOUND library has surpassed 3,000.


Since the addition of “Miku Miku ni Shiteageru” in 2007, Vocaloid songs have been steadily working their way up in popularity at Karaoke booths. In 2009 “Melt” (9th) and “World is Mine” (11th) climbed into the top rankings, followed by Vocaloids winning 5 out of the top 10 ranks. Now with Vocaloid songs making up over half of the July 2013 JOYSOUND TOP 20 songs for those below 20 years of age, it is apparent that the Vocaloid songs have become a major part of the Karaoke scene in Japan.

More songs are being added, and currently available songs such as Senbonzakura are being updated with the original video footage. There is plenty to sing for the Vocaloid fan, so be sure to drop by a Karaoke booth if you are in Japan!
