On a recent Monday night at a Los Angeles karaoke bar, a meek-looking woman in a business suit and glasses was coaxed on stage by her co-workers.
While the boozy crowd readied itself for four minutes of awkward singing, the woman "Karen" suddenly belted out exquisite, pitch-perfect renditions of the Jewel songs "Who Will Save Your Soul" and "Foolish Games."
Astonished crowd members picked their jaws off the floor and cheered wildly. One person was heard comparing Karen to "an American Susan Boyle."
Unbeknownst to them, they had been victims of "undercover karaoke."
Karen really was Jewel,

Smaller touring acts will drop in unannounced on karaoke nights and sing cover songs.
Id hit it
Hope it's funny and classy. Looks like it should be if this one is anything to go by.
That is funny stuff, and Jewel is a real sweetheart. But just for grins they should have put up a song by another artist and see how she’d do ;-)
Jewel has Alaska roots(not hair) as well.
That was cool.
I would not get my hopes up.
that’s pretty cool - thanks for sharing!!
I hope she doesn’t do anything anti-Palin. She was one of the few celebs to defend Palin during the election, even though they differ politically.
A refreshing story for a change, but, better than that, she used my name!
Love her. Such an amazing talent.
Nice to hear that she can apparently sing sans auto-tune.
I hope she doesnt do anything anti-Palin.
Ty might have something to say about that.
As far as I’m concerned, Jewel is the most substantial new popular musical talent of the past 20 years. In terms of creativity and style, what else compares? Milli Vanilli?
It really is cute.
You become naked.
Next up: Milli Vanilli.
She showed up at Ringo’s 70th at Radio City. She cannot carry a tune!
Already has happened. Smaller touring acts need money and some of those karaoke bars have prizes. The “rock star” doesn’t always win, either.
I would still boo. Her music sucks and so does she. You cannot sing either of these songs to make them sound pleasant.
That's touching. I feel a little better about my night out Karaoking in Japan last year. One of my students picked "On Top of the World" by the Carpenters. I helped him sing - I took "Karen's" part. Of course being a guy that really sucks singing Karen's part because my colleague was calling me Karen after that.
It's a poor reflection on FR if you have to point out you didn't mean hair roots!
