I went to cheer on my husband and son in a bike race yesterday aon the last hill before the finish I rang my cow bell and yelled encouragement and cheered for 2 hours while waiting for my boys to come through. I was so tired last night from just cheering I wondered how many calories cheering used.
Bear in mind almost all calorie calculators online are including the BMR - the amount of calories you'd burn if you did absolutely nothing.
Given a 150lb woman would burn around 100 cal in 90 minutes if she just watched TV, the singing is adding only around 75 calories - or not even 1 calorie per minute.

While you may burn 175 calories for singing for 90 minutes, SparkPeople does not recommend tracking these 'activities' in your fitness tracker--the reason SparkPeople uses an active daily living multiplier for things like this, so tracking them may hyper-inflate your calories burn goal. Consider this a bonus.
