Cornish musicians are being offered the chance to perform alongside pop superstar Jessie J.

The singer and coach on BBC 1's The Voice is offering the opening slot at her Eden Sessions gig to an act from the Duchy or Devon.

She is headlining two sold out shows at the biomes on July 13 and 14.

Acts can enter by sending a YouTube link showcasing one of their tracks, along with a contact phone number to jessiejcomp@edenproject.com.

A shortlist of the best entries will be compiled by Eden Sessions promoter John Empson and top music writers Jackie Butler (Culture Editor of the Western Morning News) and Lee Trewhela (editor of the Cornish Guardian, West Briton and Cornishman's What's On supplement). Jessie J will then pick the winner from this shortlist.

Eden ProjectRita Broe, Eden's Strategic Marketing Director, said: "There's a thriving music scene in the South West and we're very pleased to be able to give the opportunity for local acts to open Jessie J's Eden Sessions, especially as Jessie herself is such an advocate for new talent."

The Eden Sessions are entering their 12th year in 2013. Other headliners this this year are Eddie Izzard,  Kaiser Chiefs, Sigur Rós and The xx.

The full list of competition terms and conditions can be found here.
