Ever played SingStar on PS2? it is great fun! (for example on one’s birthday party?)
there is a karaoke system for linux called:
An open-source karaoke, band and dancing game where one or more players perform a song and the game scores their performances.
Supports songs in UltraStar, Frets on Fire and StepMania formats.
Microphones and instruments from SingStar, Guitar Hero and Rock Band as well as some dance pads are autodetected.

under Debian 10:
# update repo info apt update # search for it apt search performous performous/stable 1.1+git20181118-2 amd64 karaoke game that allows user supplied songs performous-tools/stable 1.1+git20181118-2 amd64 karaoke game that allows user supplied songs - tools # install apt install performous
this is a bit of a problem as one can imagine.
because usually there is some sort of copyright on almost all songs… EXCEPT: The Free Software song (and some others can be downloaded for free here… unfortunately not in this cool funky version:
or in the metal version:
here it might get a bit expensive.
yes one could just hook up a mike to analog in, or if one wants to go pro and do audio recording on macs anyway, get this highly recommended usb audio (analog-digital transforming) interface:
it allows to hook up two mikes (with 3 pin pro microphone cables) at the same time to one’s Linux PC.
now one still needs at least one mike: rode is a vendor of high quality microphones from Australia!
the rode nt1 one can get for 50 bucks at ebay would do the job nicely: https://www.ebay.de/sch/i.html?_osacat=0&_odkw=rode&_from=R40&_nkw=rode+nt1&_sacat=0
