A technician for an American telephone company won the top prize of one million Russian dumplings in the Karaoke World Championships.
Edward Pimentel won the unusual prize in Moscow after getting the most votes from audience members.
A panel of judges chose two Finns as the male and female champions - Sam Moudden and Maria Saarima-Ylitalo. They were awarded karaoke machines.
Amateur singers from 16 countries took part in the three-day competition.
Mr Pimentel, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, favours the R&B genre. For his song in the final round, he chose Usher's DJ's Got Us Fallin' In Love.
