Jarvis Cocker to judge Pulp karaoke concert
Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has signed up to be the judge of a karaoke contest, where contestants will only be singing Pulp songs.
The singer will be in New York to preside over the competition, which is being held at the Industry City venue in Brooklyn.
The contest will take place after a screening of Pulp’s new documentary Pulp: A Film About Life, Death, and Supermarkets which will also feature a question and answer session with Cocker and the film's director, Florian Habicht.
Contestants have been told that to enter they need to tweet the event’s organisers with a plea to be allowed to sing for Cocker. They’ve also apparently been told that they stand a much better chance of being allowed to sing if they don’t ask to perform the band’s hit ‘Common People’.
Contestants have been told to choose from the following Pulp songs to perform for Cocker:
'All Time High'
'Do You Remember The First Time'
'Help The Aged'
'Sorted For E's and Wizz'
'This is Hardcore'
