A man who was clearly the pick of the karaoke bunch for the worst singer last night received the most rowdy round of applause.

Four-years-a-gaijin Harvey Scrimshaw was lauded for his rendition of ‘Moonlight Densetu’ from the first season of the anime series Sailor Moon.

“Woohoo!! Awesome work! Good job!” the other members of the group yelled in an attempt to conceal how terrible it actually was.

“His singing did get slightly less shit when he closed his eyes though,” thought one co-karokeer.

Scrimshaw was uncertain of the authenticity of the applause but chose to believe it was genuine to boost his karaoke confidence.
