I think possibly the greatest Mini series of all time is on the History Channel tonight at 8pm ET 7 CT. If you haven't seen it I encourage you to. The first time I saw it I was blown away, it is emotional and really shows what guys in WWII went through.
This is, far and away, the most captivating series I have ever seen. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you have not seen it. THe final show blew me away when they tell you who all the guys who were interviewed in the opening segments were.
Plus, David Schwimmer gets punked out! So, cant be all bad!
"The Singing Machine" is a fairly common brand that I (and some of my friends) have - easy to use, and it comes with one mic, but you can always buy a second. You can find it with most major retailers, in-store or online.
