For most of us, karaoke is an activity that happens in basements or seedy bars with folding chairs and a rowdy crowd. But for Kristopher Traquair, karaoke is serious business. He's a passionate amateur from Winnipeg and right now, he's part of a team representing Canada at the Karaoke World Championships happening this week in Helsinki, Finland. 

Today, guest host Ali Hassan speaks to Traquair about karaoke and how he's preparing for the competition.
