New Zealand's Got Talent host Tamati Coffey thinks the fourth round of auditions on the show "have been the best yet".
Coffey said some "amazing" talent was showcased this week and he says viewers should keep an eye out for young singer Monica Orbe, and Michael Buble look-alike Jack Fraser.
"She sang her version of Christina Aguilera's song Hurt... and her voice just came out of nowhere," Coffey said of fifteen year-old Orbe.
"She had emotional substance to it, and she wasn't just singing the words," he commented.
Similarly, Coffey feels that Invercargill real estate agent Jack Fraser has real star potential.
"Everyone loved Jack, he just had that crooning voice, and you can imagine him doing really well, he sung so effortlessly."
Yet Coffey said Cameron Jones, 21, who attempted to play the saw, was judge Rachel Hunter's favourite act of the night.
"Rachel wanted a piece of him. Cameron got up there and gave it a go, even though it wasn't a particularly good act."
Jones did not make it through to the next round but Coffey revealed that the handsome student is also an actor, and he "suspects a talent agency will snap him up really soon".
Among the other acts which impressed the judges were juggling duo, Zane and Degge.
Coffey said that he thought it was "amazing how the brothers could juggle together, plus having the loaf of bread in their act was a clever way of adding intrigue."
However, not all acts fared quite so well, and Coffey said that fire dancer Tony Jenkins, 20, "just looked uncomfortable".
"His was a bit weird, and he caught on fire in a couple of places".
But for Coffey, it was dance group Deelicious who he thinks will be audience favourites in the next round.
"Those island boys, dressed in their traditional costumes, were just hilarious. They were funny, they were good looking, fit, and acrobatic."
I loved how they danced to Beyonce's Run the World (Girls) song, said Coffey.
"It's what I love about islanders, they honestly blur that line between masculine and feminine really well.
"The audience loves acts with a cultural element, because we are made up of so many cultures in New Zealand. It's nice to see diversity up on stage, because that's what NZGT is, a variety show," he said.
Coffey also revealed that the judges have just arrived back in New Zealand, and are ready to film the first round of semi-finals.
He added that in the coming weeks "the viewers will see a big step up from the acts, and we will learn a lot more about the finalists.'
