Tonight the final five semi-finalists performed in the last semi-final episode of the top-rating talent show.

Dudley Fairbrass, Limit Breakdance Crew, Alfred The Circus Nerd, Logan Walker and wildcard winners Arihia Te Kuatau and Tahu Henare will have to wait until next week’s Grand Final to learn if they have made it to the Top 12.

The Grand Final will see all Top 12 contestants performing one more time for the judges and the audience at home, who will have until midday Tuesday 27th November to text vote for their favourite act.
