Man wins 1 million dumplings for karaoke

Sept. 26, 2010 at 3:10 PM

MOSCOW, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- U.S. telephone engineer Edward Pimentel has won 1 million dumplings for his performance at the World Karaoke Championships in Moscow, organizers said.

Pimental won the dumplings for singing rhythm and blues standards, but he didn't win the contest outright; he was named "audience favorite," the BBC reported.

At the rate of 100 dumplings a day, Pimentel should have enough to last for 27 years, the report said.

Winners of the Karaoke World Championship 2010 are Sam Moudden in the men's division, and Maria Saarimaa-Ylitalo, in the women's contest; both are Finns.
