With Christmas approaching I decided to get some of my shopping done early. My sister and her husband are huge karaoke fans and apparantly anytime they have their friends over they always ask one of them to bring their karaoke machine. So I figured I'd get them one for Christmas but I am pretty clueless when it comes to which ones are any good since I hate karaoke and have no way of contacting the particular friend that is always bringing the machine over. I want to get them one with 2 mics preferably, so if anyone has any recommendations I would welcome them.

"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.
If you're willing to lay down the dough, I heartily recommend the Magic Sing. The songs and lyrics are built into the mic. Just plug it into the TV and go! And now they make a version with two wireless mics.
The downside is that all the songs are midi format, but they sound pretty decent. Quality is balanced out with quantity, Most models come pre-loaded with around 2000 songs, and you can buy song chips to expand the selection.
I would just point everyone to one of the comics news sites for all the dirt. Since I did work for htem at the show, I'd suggest The Pulse, which is at www.comicon.com/pulse. It was a HUGE show. Very tiring.
