1. “A Whole New World” From Aladdin
At the top of our list is “A Whole New World” from the Disney movie Aladdin. It’s got the number one spot for one reason, and that’s because it’s an easy duet. Trying to impress someone you want to make your romantic partner? Then choose this song at karaoke and thank us later!
2. “When You Believe” From The Prince of Egypt
Anyone who has seen The Prince of Egypt knows the movie is full of absolute bangers, even if you aren’t a fan of the popular Bible story. If you’ve got two girls, go for “When You Believe” which is composed for two female voices. If you’ve got two guys, then “The Plagues” might work if you don’t mind a little chanting.
3. “You’re The One that I Want” From Grease
“You’re The One that I Want” is one of the most famous duets of all time, but don’t be deceived, this duet is hard to sing. If both you and your partner are good singers, then go for it, otherwise, we recommend choosing something else.
4. “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” by Elton John
Who doesn’t love Elton John? Although he isn’t as well-known as Disney for the best duet songs, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” is popular and an easy song to sing to impress.
5. “I Got You Babe” By Sonny and Cher
For those who love oldies, “I Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher is a classic duet for a male and female voice. Plus, it’s more speaking than actual singing, so easier to hide the fact that you can’t sing if you’re nervous.

6. “Shallow” From A Star is Born
Sung by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in the remake of A Star Is Born, “Shallow” is a heartbreakingly beautiful song. But it is one of the hardest on our list of the best duet songs, so don’t attempt it if you aren’t a singer.
7. “Start of Something New” From High School Musical
Next up is something a little easier. While the plot of High School Musical sucks, at least there are some really good duet songs. “Start of Something New” is perfect for a couple, or you can choose “Breaking Free” or “Bop to the Top.” A pair of two guys can even go for “I Don’t Dance” the options are endless.
8. “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” By Michael Jackson
This song written by Michael Jackson and featuring Siedah Garrett is one of the best duets of all time. It’s sung by a man and woman in the original version, but Michael’s voice is a little higher anyway so you can probably sing this with two female voices no problem.

9. “Come What May” From Moulin Rouge
No list of best duet songs would be complete without “Come What May” from Moulin Rouge. It’s a beautiful song and perfect for showcasing your voice but know that the male part for this song is hard, so don’t push this one on someone who isn’t confident with their singing.
10. “For Good” From Wicked
From the musical Wicked, “For Good” is a duet for two females, but there are many other options from this musical for all sorts of voice mixes. For example, there is also “What Is This Feeling” and “As Long As Your Mine.”
11. “Islands In The Stream” by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton
If you’re looking for something slow. It’s a bit challenging for the female (as it’s hard to match Dolly Parton’s range) but if you want to give it a shot, this can be a fun tune for a karaoke night.
12. “Easy Lover” By Philip Bailey and Phil Collins
It is hard to find duets for two guys, but it can be done. “Easy Lover” by Phillip Bailey and Phil Collins is a prime example. It’s a slow song with an easy melody to follow plus we love the light rock feel.
13. “Endless Love” by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie
Looking for a love song? “Endless Love” by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie is perfect for a romantic rendition of karaoke. We recommend practicing it in advance though if you aren’t familiar with the song as there are some long notes to hold.
14. “Far Longer Than Forever” From The Swan Princess
Anyone who missed out on The Swan Princess trilogy in the early 90s didn’t miss much, except for some songs which make excellent duets. “Far Longer Than Forever” is romantic and designed for both a male and female voice but if you want something lighthearted for less mature (or two female voices) then choose “This Is My Idea.”
15. “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” From Frozen
Ah yes, we couldn’t finish this list without one song from the Disney movie Frozen. While we aren’t a fan, these tunes are excellent duets for two females. Just please, do not choose “Let it Go” unless you want everyone to hate you.
16. “Rewrite the Stars” From The Greatest Showman
Sung by Zendaya and Zac Efron in the movie The Greatest Showman, “Rewrite the Stars” is a beautiful and sad duet. It’s a bit more challenging than the Disney songs on this list but not as hard as singing Dolly Parton’s part in “Islands in the Sun” so good for someone those who want something in the middle.
17. “Go The Distance” From Hercules
Last on our list of the best duet songs is “Go The Distance” which can be sung as a duet with two men, or a male and a female depending on their ranges. Either way, if you choose this song, get ready for everyone to sing along!
