NZ's Parris Goebel joins Elton John for talent search

The British pop star has selected the 25-year-old to be on the judging panel for The Cut, a YouTube competition and talent search for music video directors.

“Elton John is basically running a really big competition and inviting any creative to create something for his most classic songs," she said.

“It could be a director, a choreographer or a dance team or even a painter. Whatever it is, you can submit a video set to his music and I was chosen to be a part of the judging panel. It’s pretty big.”
