The votes are in, but viewers still have to wait until Sunday evening before the winner of New Zealand's Got Talent will be revealed.

Two young girls and a high energy dance troupe appear to be the viewers' favourites in the competition.

The final 12 performed for the last time in the grand finale on Sunday in front of judges Jason Kerrison, Rachel Hunter and Ali Campbell. Almost 900,000 people tuned in to watch.

Stuff-readers' favourite, Marlborough school girl Clara Van Wel, has mesmerised judges and audiences with her original songs. With last week's song 'Where Do You Find Love?' the singer showed her most personal performance yet.

Another crowd pleaser was outrageous Maori dance crew JGeeks. Group founder Jermaine Leef described their act as a "new age metro Maori entertainment". 

"It's the only act on NZGT that will take people on a historical, comedic, high energy, new age Maori journey," he said.

Tiny opera diva Jessie Hillel, continued to stun the audience with a voice that belies her size.

The 11-year-old Wellington school girl has been singing since she was three-years-old and started lessons two years later. Last week's larger-than-life performance of Ave Maria cemented her place among the top performers.

Other memorable acts were young Fletcher Oxford, who made a final plea to his missing cat Sushi, 91-year-old Christchurch singer Olivia Turner and looper extraordinaire Mihirangi Fleming.

Also in the finals performance were Big' Dane Moeke, jugglers Zane and Degge, Evan Sinton with his unique take on Nancy Sinatra'sBang Bang, Logan Walker, Dudley Fairbrass and Tawaroa Kawana

Voting closed on Tuesday and the winner will be announced on Sunday, 7.30pm on TV One.
