the top navigation through search, browse or SmartGlass integration, which
connects a tablet or mobile device to the Xbox 360 console.Songs can be added
to Favorites so they're super-easy to find, or can be found through the
History list to sing them over and over again. Other options include key
change and a lead vocal track to help sing less familiar songs. To access all
