Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker performed an awesome cover of Celine Dion's 'Power Of Love' for Vice's 20th birthday.

Performing at the magazine's birthday party, Cocker introduced the track by saying: "You see that it says 'Vice turns 20'? 20 years ago, this was one of the biggest songs in the world, and I'm going to sing it especially to you."

Naturally, he totally Cocker-fies it, delivering it with a Pulp-esque indie disco backing and spoken word Sheffield drawl - staying fairly true to the original albeit switching the gender for the iconic hook of: "For you are my lady, and I am your man."

Other performances at Vice's celebratory concert include Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill and Spike Jonze, Karen O, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Ghostface Killa, Black Lips and Andrew WK.

Jarvis Cocker is currently on sabbatical from his BBC 6 Music DJ slot, said to be working on new music. It is unclear if this would be for Pulp or a solo project.
