That would not be a possibility here.

While it may be possible to connect a mic to the tv, it wouldn't work well as the tv doesn't have sufficient ampliciation for that purpose, so you wouldn't hear much of anything. Even if you could though, you'd get the sound only, because you'd have to be set to the analog audio/video input, which would conflict with the youtube app, you can't use both at the same time.

What you'd have to do in this situation is to use a separate external amplifier with the microphones instead.

My apologies for the news,

Nathan

I have a Samsung sound bar connected with the TV. Would that be useful for karaoke purposes, or do I need to buy an amplifier? If so, what type of amplifier? Do you mean a speaker?

It could be possible, but then you would have to have the youtube music playing through the tv speakers and separate the microphone sound to come through the soundbar. Even then, the overall sound quality would be poor and the mic wont work well (insufficient amplification) through the soundbar.

What you would really want here would be a small PA/karaoke system. There are several small and inexpensive systems purpose built for this type of situation:
