Adele's "Someone Like You" has been named the most sung song by a karaoke website.

The track topped the singles chart after a show-stopping performance at the 2011 Brit Awards, and accounts for around 7% of all the 3.1 million songs sung by 200,000 users of the Lucky Voice website.

She saw off competition from Canadian pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen whose "Call Me Maybe" was the second most popular choice, picked by 5.4% of singers, while 4.2% went for One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful".

Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" was almost as popular, with 4.1% of singers choosing to serenade their friends with their own take on the hit.

Queen's classic "Bohemian Rhapsody" is the fifth most popular choice, with another Adele track, "Make You Feel My Love", also in the top 10.

Other popular choices are "Sexy And I Know It" by LMFAO and "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Gotye featuring Kimbra.

Lucky Voice boss Nick Thistleton said: "We are witnessing an important cultural shift in the types of songs people are choosing to sing in the UK. Even five years ago you would expect to find the charts dominated by the old guard of rock like Bon Jovi.

"In recent years traditional karaoke artists like Bonnie Tyler, Elton John and Guns 'n' Roses have had to make way to new and exciting artists like Carly Rae Jepsen, Gotye featuring Kimbra and LMFAO. Today, with the renaissance of karaoke, comes a new audience who demand current music and contemporary artists to listen and sing along to."
