Chris Pratt's karaoke woes

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Chris Pratt once lost out on a date with a girl be­cause he couldn't pull off Michael Jack­son's 'Man In The Mir­ror' at a karaoke bar. The 37-year-old ac­tor - who has a four-year-old son Jack with wife Anna Faris - had pre­vi­ously been im­pressed with his own ren­di­tion of the late King of Pop's clas­sic track, so de­cided to sing it again in a bar af­ter meet­ing a girl he wanted to im­press. Speak­ing on 'The Tonight Show Star­ring Jimmy Fal­lon', the 'Juras­sic World' star said: "I had killed it one week, I felt re­ally good. I was like, 'That's my song! I can sing 'Man In The Mir­ror'!' "It's very dif­fi­cult. High de­gree of dif­fi­culty but when you nail it, you nail it. "I was rid­ing high on the wave of nail­ing 'Man In The Mir­ror' the week be­fore, but I went to a new karaoke bar and met a girl, her name was Ma­rina. "I was flirt­ing with her, and I had 'Man In The Mir­ror' in my pocket and I knew I was gonna kill it. "I got up on stage and I said 'This song's for Ma­rina'. "Now, I didn't re­al­ize there's dif­fer­ent notes and dif­fer­ent keys and stuff, and it just wasn't my key, it wasn't my night." But the 'Parks and Re­cre­ation' ac­tor sol­diered on through with the song un­til some­one from the crowed yelled "You suck" and his evening rapidly went down­hill. He con­tin­ued: "I re­ally started sweat­ing. "Some guy yelled 'You suck', and I look and he's stand­ing right next to Ma­rina! "And she left with the 'You suck' guy!" But the dis­as­trous ex­pe­ri­ence hasn't put Christ off karaoke for good. He said: "I am a karaoke guy. I've sung karaoke for a long time, my whole fam­ily al­ways sings karaoke at par­ties."
