About One Night Only
One Night Only, hosted by Jordan Vandermade (The Singing Bee)
and Clinton Randall (Just The Job), pitches two teams of regular
people from all walks of life against each other for a cash
The teams are given vocal and dance training, and whisked into the limelight of the studio to perform songs as a group, a duet and as a solo artist. Judging the contestants on their singing skills are NZ Idol's Iain Stables, songstress Elizabeth Marvelly, and former Shortland Street and Dancing With The Stars alumnus David Wikaira-Paul.
Producer Debra Kelleher, who previously brought the hugely successful Dancing With The Stars to our screens, was excited to bring this brand new format to TV2.
Kelleher explains that the thing she enjoyed most about the series was finding the talent spread across New Zealand. "We found every day Kiwis across the whole country, and stood them in the spotlight to raise money for their local communities. We discovered some amazing unsung heros and gave them a chance to shine on national TV."
Kelleher was also happy with the dynamic pairing of Jordan Vandermade and Clinton Randell, to present the show. "Jordan and Clinton are two proven performers. They provide fresh, funny and supportive banter with the judges and contestants, and it gives the show some real warmth and humour."
With such a diverse trio of judges, Kelleher says the judging calls could be across the board. "Elizabeth is the girl next door and is very fair, David is an all-round nice guy, and Stables tells it like it is. Ultimately, however, it's the studio audience who the teams have to impress, as they hold the voting power in their hands."
