Do we add 'Karaoke' versions by the original artists?

Please see the situation on Isabel Varell ‎– Nie Wieder Ohne Dich where one track is an instrumental/Karaoke version of the main track. I guess it is ok to submit this as original and related instrumental?

I would only do so if you know of versions by other artists.

No, karaoke versions are out of scope.

Updated the FAQ

This doesn’t quite work as there are several reasons where we do allow two performances by the same performer - vocal vs. instrumental, stage performance vs. recording, different first recording and first release, medley vs single part performance.

Bastien, I recently added Children, Kinder, Enfants , there are 3 different language versions by the same artist. Are they not allowed? They were accepted by an editor , so I thought it would be ok so far?
