The correct way to hold your mic in KTV—you’ve been doing it wrongly!

Most of us are just casual singers—we sing in the shower and lift when no one is in. Sometimes, we go to KTVs and sing to our hearts’ content without thinking about whether we’re holding the microphone the correct way. But if you’re really serious about singing it the “correct” way, you’ve got to firstly chill, and then read this.

First of all, you’ve got to understand there are various types of microphones, but in a KTV room, you’ll usually just see the basic one: those that that capture the sounds that are directly on top of it (the second type).

So, having said that, it’s common sense to just hold the microphone directly below you, right? No—in order to ensure that the sound coming out from your mouth does not filter away, you’ll have to keep it to a 45 degree angle, and have a space of approximately one inch (about 2.5 cm) away from your mouth.

That will allow enough “vibration” in the air to create the best sound, and letting the microphone pick up the sound you intended to portray.

But come on, let’s face it: if you can sing, you can sing. No matter how you hold your microphone, a bad singer is always going to be a bad singer. #truestory
