'Rolling In The Deep' also came in at fourth place on the rundown with 4.1% of the chart – just behind One Direction's 4.2% for 'What Makes You Beautiful'.
Lucky Voice boss Nick Thistleton revealed: "We are witnessing an important cultural shift in the types of songs people are choosing to sing in the UK."
He continued: "Even five years ago you would expect to find the charts dominated by the old guard of rock like Bon Jovi.
The owner also praised some of the "exciting new artists" which were being chosen ahead of some of the more classic 80s hits.
"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," he said. "Today, with the renaissance of karaoke, comes a new audience who demand current music and contemporary artists to listen and sing along to."
