Juanes has invited fans to take part in a contest in which the winner gets to sing one of the artist's hit tunes in a duet with him in an "unplugged" special that the Colombian singer will shoot next February for MTV.

Participants must submit their performances of a Juanes hit like "A Dios Le Pido" (I Ask God), "Me Enamora" (I Fall in Love), "Fotografia" (Photography) or "La Soledad" (Solitude), the artist said in a joint communique with the cable TV channel targeting Hispanic youth, Tr3s: MTV, Musica y Mas.

Every week, fans of the Colombian singer will judge and choose the best performances up to the final selection, which will be made by Juanes himself.

The contest runs from Dec. 12-Jan. 9 on the Web site juanes.tr3s.com.

The "Juanes MTV Unplugged" special and its album will be filmed in February 2012 at the New World Center in Miami Beach.

Tr3s said last week that the Juanes album live will be directed by the Dominican Juan Luis Guerra.
