Due to requests from the public, the entry deadline for TV ONE’s Countdown To The New Year Freshly Squeezed Talent Quest has been extended to midnight Sunday 28 November.
This New Year’s Eve, TV ONE will be celebrating the end of year with glitz, glamour and a show-stopping spread of entertainment finishing with a spectacular fireworks display from the top of the Sky City Tower at midnight.
Hosted by TV favourite Jason Gunn and newcomer, Matt Gibb, the show will be broadcast from the Sky City Theatre and the best of New Zealand’s performers will entertain viewers with their favourite hit songs.
Central to the show is the Freshly Squeezed Talent Quest, a nationwide search to find fresh new Kiwi singers to perform for the first time on a national stage. There are three categories people can enter under; Male Vocal, Female Vocal, and Vocal Group and it’s up to viewer’s votes to decide which three will win, as they compete for a cash prize. Plus winners age 20 or over will have the opportunity to sing at Sky City Casino venues for a month.
