Ne-Yo likes to sing Gloria Gaynor at karaoke.

The 'So Sick' singer - real name Shaffer Chimere Smith - believes karaoke should always be sung "badly" and is a particular fan of camp classic 'I Will Survive' by the disco queen.

He said: "My favourite karaoke song? 'I Will Survive' by Gloria Gaynor. I sing it bad on purpose - I'm a firm believer in singing badly at karaoke. I hate the guy who comes in and tries to sing well!"

However, the 29-year-old hunk - who recently revealed he would love to do a duet with 'Skyfall' singer Adele - does also have some guilty modern pleasures, including 'Gangnam Style' by South Korean pop star Psy.

He told Now magazine: "The track I like to dance to is 'Gangnam Style'! I hate to jump on the bandwagon, but I love that record!

"I like the singe Psy because he doesn't take himself too seriously. It's a fun recording and when I saw the crazy video, I was sold!"
