    Karaoke booths are gaining popularity in China to satisfy the solitary songbirds' needs.

    Equipped with everything a singer needs in a usual karaoke den, these k-booths can be booked and paid online, and are able to save and send performances to friends on social media, who can rate them afterwards.

    A standard booth will set you back US$0.73 per song and US$8.7 per hour in Shenzhen — more than double an hour per person at local chain karaoke parlours. But its accessibility and flexibility gives it an edge for singers in need of a quick fix.
