In the words of Anika Moa, he's going to be "as famous as Lorde, if not famouser".

Moa teases the Christchurch singer for being "the James Blunt of New Zealand" but there's no denying the man's talent when he picks up the guitar for an impromptu singalong.

Moa was even inspired to join in, and for the first time in this series' history, she sings properly, delivering a hauntingly beautiful duet.
