As is the case with all these big televised talent shows these days, the TV networks are broadcasting live tweets during the shows. With most of the tweets during New Zealand’s Got Talent being rather negative, the challenge of finding positive ones in the flurry of negativity must be a daunting task for whoever is doing it. It would be so much easier to just create a fake account and write the message you want to spin and then broadcast that.

First up are O.K. Crew, or Ordinary Kids.  Not exactly a name that screams talent and after last week, are they opening the show with anothe dud act?  Nope.  A bit of traditional Maori performance with some glow in the dark action.  Cris Judd gets up on stage again, this time to have a go at using Poi.  It’s not as easy as it looks.
