Performous

Performous

Performous is an open-source karaoke, band and dancing game where one or more players perform a song and the game scores their performances.

Performous is more than a karaoke game. Instead of just displaying the lyrics, notes are also displayed and the performance is scored based on how well you actually hit the notes.
