Although this is the second Karaoke Revolution video game series to have an American Idol feature, this is the first Karaoke Revolution video game series to feature an online competition mode where the players can compete against each other for a high score in singing.

Randy Jackson: [sarcasm] All right, all right. So, yo man I don't know what was going on with you today man, but that was awful. Not good.
Paula Abdul: I don't think that was the performance to win this competition. You come a long way and we're all so proud of you. But tonight, just wasn't the best. Hm, that is a very different look you were trying to go for. However, I just want you to raise your gain. Let's hear it from Simon.
Simon Cowell: I hated it. Really, really "hated it". Yes, you can all "boo" because I'm being mean. Deep down, you know I'm right. It was absolutely, awful. I don't think that was good enough. And you know what? You're beginning to look ordinary against the other singers. "Terrible".
