Homai Te Pakipaki - 2015 Grand Final

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2015

The very last grand final of Homai Te Pakipaki sees ten finalists from across the motu come together to sing their hearts out, with the hope of taking home a $20,000 cash prize (plus phone package). Broadcast live, the raw talent karaoke contest is hosted by Brent Mio and 2008 series winner Pikiteora Mura-Hita, with help from Pakipaki veteran Te Hamua Nikora. The winner is decided by whānau, iwi and the viewers at home via text vote. The guests include 2014 winner Lee Stuart, band Sons of Zion and Identity Dance Company. There are also short clips of past show highlights.

The scattering of onlookers, crew, friends and whānau, literally gasp.
– Josē Barbosa on reaction to Ora Taukamu rehearsing 'One and Only', before the show, website The Spinoff, 29 December 2015
