Maori Television’s live karaoke show, HOMAI TE PAKIPAKI has hit the home straight with the grand final taking place this Friday 26 August at 8.30pm at Auckland’s Logan Campbell Centre.

The heats have uncovered some amazing talent over the past few months as hundreds of aspiring singers fronted up to audition at Maori Television's Auckland studios.

For many of them, getting to sing on national television was a dream, and HOMAI TE PAKIPAKI the least intimidating way to realise it.

The best of them made it through the heats and the semi-finals, and this week, 10 hopefuls hit the stage all over again as they compete to win the bragging rights for series five and $10,000 in prize money

The HOMAI TE PAKIPAKI grand final is screening live from the Logan Campbell Centre on Friday 26 August from 8.30pm.

The following singers will sing for whanau, iwi and regional pride in the two-hour music extravaganza:

PAKI 1: Vavese Paparoa – Hokianga
PAKI 2: Melody Potaka Osborne – Whanganui
PAKI 3: Hemi Lito Wong – Hastings/Ngati Kahungunu
PAKI 4: Dougy Petley – Putaruru/Ngati Porou and Ngaiterangi
PAKI 5: Francis Tipene – Massey/Te Rarawa
PAKI 6: David Curtis – Hamilton/Pakipaki/Ngati Kahungunu

PAKI 8: Monique Te Paea – Taumarunui/Ngapuhi
PAKI 9: Phillip Tarawa – Gisborne/Rongowhakaata
PAKI 10: Brennan Hohepa-Barrett – Rotorua

Tune in to Maori Television at 8.30pm on 26 August and text your vote to 368, or be there in person at the Logan Campbell Centre, 217 Greenlane Rd West, Epsom, Auckland – be sure to arrive early to get a seat. Entry is by gold coin koha which will go to a charity announced on the night.
