Wannabe singers: apply here.



If you've never quite made the cut for The X-Factor, here's the next best thing: a contest to find the top in-car karaoke singer, aptly called the Caraoke Competition.

The best entry, which is voted for by the public, wins a Fiat 500 car.
Car rental company Europcar is behind the challenge, and is encouraging the public to post their personal performances in their car on Facebook. The most entertaining performance, as voted by visitors to Europcar's Facebook page, will win the popular city car.

The idea of the Europcar Caraoke Competition is to inspire people to show their star quality and get them to record their favourite song from a list of 10 classics including the Troggs hit Wild Thing and Labelle's Lady Marmalade then upload videos to Facebook using You Tube. Entrants are encouraged to campaign for themselves by collecting votes for their Caraoke videos through their own Facebook friends and groups.

"You only need to sit in a traffic jam and look at the driver in the car next to you or behind you to realise that in-car singing is a great stress reliever" said Ken McCall, Europcar UK boss. "So we thought we'd mount our own hunt for the best in-car karaoke singer with our Caraoke Competition. And there's a great incentive – the best performance voted for by visitors to our Facebook page will win a Fiat 500 car."

In addition to the grand prize, weekly prizes will be given out including Amazon e-vouchers, Eastern Airways flights, an overnight stay plus dinner and breakfast exclusive at a Hand Picked Hotels, Garmin sat nav systems, Samsung Galaxy tablets, driving experience packages and spa days at the five-star hotel resort Stoke Park. Weekly prize winners will be selected via a prize draw giving entrants more chances to win prizes.
