Homai Te Paki Paki

Maori Television’s popular live karaoke show, HOMAI TE PAKIPAKI is just one semi-final away from the Grand Final!

The heats have uncovered some wonderful talent over the winter months, as hundreds of wannabe singers fronted up, from May to September, 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, text voters decided their fate, and now the singers are coming back to do it all again – and throw themselves on the mercy of voters at home – in the semi-finals.

The next semi-final will be held at Maori Television on Friday October 8 at 8.30 PM, and the following singers will sing for whanau, iwi and regional pride:

Eddie Biddle – Levin

Monica Hughes – Kaitaia

Gin Rangitaawa – Otorohanga

Nephi Fepulea’I – Auckland

Murray Walters – Auckland

Cilla Peihopa – Hamilton

Sala-Marlene Tyler – Auckland

Eruera Tamanui – Auckland

Rachel Tamapolu – Auckland

Andrew Kingi – Hastings

 

The first of the semi-finals was held on Friday October 1. The following singers made it through to the top 10:

 

Warena Pomana – Wairarapa

Raniera Rakena – Hamilton

Stevie Reweti – Tauranga

Denise Keelan – Napier

Roman Nicholas – Tauranga

 

Five from each semi go forward to sing at the Grand Final, to be held at Auckland’s Logan Campbell Centre on Friday October 15 at 8.30 PM. The final will be a two-hour extravaganza.

Come join in the fun as HOMAI TE PAKIPAKI hits finals fever! Friday October 8 and 15 at 8.30 PM.
