He joins the ranks of people from music mag NME and Radio 1, according to band face-off Live and Unsigned: Simon Li has signed up to help out with the competition.

The group that is victorious in the battle of the bands – which also features single artists – will apparently be able to take part in many gigs and walk away with £10,000.

Li, a record label worker and guitar player, will be helping out in the band competition's judging process – it is apparently the most expansive contest of its kind in the country.

He is also a past band member and was only six when he began penning music, Live and Unsigned adds.

Going through recordings given by eager new bands to Universal Music is part of his day job, so he's well placed to take on the task, suggests the contest suggests.

Universal currently lists a forthcoming CD version of Rufus Wainwright's record Out of the Game as among the most bought in its online shop.
