Fletcher Oxford and Mihirangi through to Grand Final of New Zealand's Got Talent.

Fletcher Oxford and Mihirangi have been named as the fifth semi-finalists to go through to the Grand Final of TV ONE’s New Zealand's Got Talent.

Tauranga schoolboy Oxford was the most popular act with the voting public after performing an original composition dedicated – once again - to his missing moggy, Sushi, in last week’s semi-final episode.

The judges’ favourite, looper Mihirangi is also through to the Grand Final after a high energy combination of loops and live vocals.

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.

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.

The winner of New Zealand’s Got Talent, determined solely by public votes will be announced on Sunday 2nd December, at 7.30 pm on TV ONE.

Howard Davis Review:
