Jarvis Cocker is set to judge a Pulp karaoke competition in New York next week.

The frontman of the Sheffield band will be in New York to preside over the contest, which is being held at the Industry City venue in Brooklyn. Would be entrants can tweet their plea to perform for Cocker to the event organisers with those who don't want to sing 'Common People' being told that they will stand a better chance of being selected.

The competition will take place after a screening of Pulp's new film Pulp: A Film About Life, Death, and Supermarkets as well as a Q+A with Cocker and the film's director, Florian Habicht.

Willing contestants can select from the following Pulp songs to perform for Jarvis

'All Time High'
'Babies'
'Common People'
'Disco 2000'
'Do You Remember The First Time'
'Help The Aged'
'Mile End'
'Monday Morning'
'Sorted For E's and Wizz'
'This is Hardcore'


All entrants must have registered their interest by midday on Monday (August 4). Click here for more information on the event.
