Karaoke Revolution takes on American Idol

While Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol was first announced back in May, we didn't get a real glimpse of the game until today. For the first time (since the disastrously awful American Idol rhythm game, anyway), fans of the TV show will be able to go from auditions to finals, singing to impress Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson (but not Paula Abdul, strangely) while competing to become the next semi-talented performer contractually obligated to sing in Ford commercials.

While the highlight of the game looks to be the judges - who will be smart enough to address specific parts of your living-room performances while they rip your singing aspirations a new one - the game also promises to pack in plenty of the weirdness that gives American Idol its charm. From the ill-considered costumes in the early rounds to an unlockable William Hung, plenty of the stuff that gives the show its train-wreck appeal will be accurately represented. You'll even be able to use the EyeToy camera to plaster your face onto one of the fat-headed singers, which is sure to make those early elimination rounds even more creepy than usual.

We've also gotten hold of the complete song list for the game, most of which have a place in American Idol history:
