Idol Finalists Return Home Before Grand Final Showdown

NZ IDOL finalists Indira Moala and Matthew Saunoa will be returning home this weekend to bid thanks to their friends, families and the local fans that have voted them through to the 2006 NZ IDOL Grand Final.

Each of the Idols will be performing and signing for their many hometown fans in local events hosted by IDOL’s Dominic Bowden.

Details of Matt’s homecoming: Date: Saturday October 21 Time: from 1.30pm Place: Levin Mall

Details of Indira’s homecoming: Date: Sunday October 22 Time: from 9.30am Place: 34 Barry’s Point Rd, Takapuna (Kathmandu building, formerly known as Pendos building)

The two homecoming events kick off NZ IDOL’s final week and the countdown to the NZ IDOL Grand Final where the top two contestants will battle it out for the NZ IDOL title and the prize package which includes a record contract, a brand new Daihatsu Terios and $50,000 cash.

On Sunday October 22, Indira and Matt will perform in the last of the IDOL studio shows. Each Idol will sing their three favourite songs from this year’s competition. Voting lines will open at the end of the show and viewers will have a full week in which to vote for the contestant they want to win.

On Monday October 23 they will battle it out on stage in a special head-to-head concert in which each of the contestants will perform a selection of songs. They will also each perform this year’s NZ IDOL winner’s single for the first time. The concert will be broadcast live from Auckland’s Bruce Mason Theatre.
And on Sunday October 29, Matt and Indira will perform on stage alongside in the NZ IDOL Grand Final which will also feature performances from the other top 10 contestants and some very special surprise guests. The Grand Final will be broadcast live from Auckland’s St James Theatre at 7.30pm on TV2.

With voting numbers for last Monday’s top 3 results show being the highest for any NZ IDOL episode outside a final, this year’s Grand Final is shaping up to be the closest yet.

Don’t miss the countdown to the 2006 NZ IDOL Grand Final:

* Saturday October 21 Matt’s homecoming event from 1.30pm at Levin Mall

* Sunday October 22 Indira’s homecoming event from 8.30am at 34 Barry’s Point Rd, Takapuna Top 2 performance show at 7.30pm on TV2

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
