Footage has emerged of the winning performance in a recent Pulp karaoke contest.

The contest, which was judged by Jarvis Cocker, took place last week in New York and was won by a nine-year-old boy called Graham Johnson, who sang 'This Is Hardcore'.

The frontman of the Sheffield band was in New York to preside over the contest, which was held at the Industry City venue in Brooklyn. The competition took place after a screening of Pulp's new film Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets as well as a Q&A with Cocker and the film's director, Florian Habicht. See below for footage of the child's winning performance, and Cocker and Habicht's reaction.

"That was one of the most incredible things I've ever witnessed. It was a little disturbing... but I will not forget that, ever," says Cocker after the winning performance. Other contestants in the competition including a woman who dressed as an old lady and then did a striptease to 'Help The Aged'. Cocker said of the event: "I can truly say that was a unique experience."
