Two more for grand final of NZ's Got Talent

Clara Van Wel and Zane and Degge through to Grand Final of New Zealand’s Got Talent.

Clara Van Wel and Zane and Degge have been named as the fourth semi-finalists to go through to the Grand Final of TV ONE’s New Zealand’s Got Talent.

Marlborough schoolgirl Van Wel was the most popular act with the voting public after performing her self-penned song, ‘Between the Lines’ in last week’s semi-final episode.

The judges’ favourite, jugglers Zane and Degge are also through to the Grand Final after an illuminating act which showcased their unique talent.

In total 12 acts, as voted for by the public and New Zealand’s Got Talent judges Jason Kerrison, Rachel Hunter and Ali Campbell will take part in the Grand Final, a two-hour special to be screened on Sunday, 25th November on TV ONE.

On tonight’s show, a further five acts were announced for the sixth and last semi-final episode of the top-rating talent show.

Canterbury student Dudley Fairbass’s musical maturity shone through his take on Jeff Buckely’s ‘Hallelujah’.

The 13-strong Limit Breakdance Crew’s mix of dance, tricks and flips put a winning spin on hip-hop.

Matthias Goed – aka Alfred The Circus Nerd – showed off the skills he’s honed as part of New Zealand’s only home-grown circus, Circus Aotearoa.

The judges were unanimous in their choice of Logan Walker and his self-penned ballad, ‘Beautiful’.

And East Coast cousins, Arihia and Tahu were named as the winners of the Head and Shoulders Above The Rest Wildcard, earning them a place in the competition.
The five new semi-finalists will perform for the judges again in next week’s semi-final episode of New Zealand’s Got Talent, when viewers will be able to text vote for their favourites and the results of tonight’s show will also be revealed.

New Zealand’s Got Talent, Sunday at 7.30 pm on TV ONE
