Karaoke for Xbox 360 announced - streams 8,000 songs, charges by the hour
New Xbox Live app to launch this Christmas

Microsoft has teamed up with The Karaoke Channel to create a new Xbox Live app titled Karaoke.

Set for release "in time for the holidays", the service will let you stream songs from an 8,000 strong library for an hourly fee.

It will offer a selection of free rotating sample songs, with full access to the music library available for blocks of two, six or 24 hours purchasable using Microsoft Points.

The app will allow users to queue songs, support Achievements, and feature SmartGlass integration. To access all of the features users will need an Xbox 360 headset and microphone, Play XBLA reports.

Depending on the per hour pricetag, this may be fairly successful.

For us scorewhores, if you can't get all achievements within the first 2 hour block, the interwebs will run red with nerd rage.

The Karaoke Channel is available today.  Find it in the "Apps" section of the Dashboard, not Games.

Apparently you get 5 free songs per day, so you can earn all achievement without spending money ... assuming you have Kinect and a SmartGlass device.   ;)
