Brandon Flowers - Brandon Flowers no karaoke king

Brandon Flowers is no good at karaoke.

The Killers singer claims he has only picked up a mic to sing to a backing track once in his life as a teenager, and at the time his famous vocals weren't fully formed.

He said: ''I only ever did karaoke the one time. I sung Oasis' 'Don't Look Back In Anger'. I was working at a French restaurant and it was a Christmas party. We went to a Thai restaurant and they had karaoke, so I did it. I was about 18 or 19, and honestly, I wasn't a good singer.''

By the time The Killers got to making their debut album, 'Hot Fuss', a few years later, the 'Somebody Told Me' star's voice had strengthened and he was becoming obsessed with David Bowie.

He added to NME magazine: ''Everybody's making a big deal out of Bowie's new stuff, but 'Heathen' [2002] is the s**t. It's the last great Bowie record - I'm not afraid to say it. It's awesome. We stole the bassline from 'All These Things That I've Done' straight from 'Slow Burn' and on 'Everything Will Be Alright', I was really trying to do a 'Heathen'-style song.''
