For Tindra and Vivi Crossland, or 'The Blondinis', singing and performing in front of thousands is no big thing.
The 10-year-old non-identical twins have been performing around the country for two years.
The singing sensations won the Junior Duet at the New Zealand Gold Guitar Awards where they performed in front of 1800 to 2000 people
"Another highlight of their careers so far was their performance of the Love Bug by George Jones won the under-18 duo competition at the Best of the West Country Music Awards. They beat performers much older than them," said proud father, Kalev.
"That don't bother me" by Aussie country singer Casey Chambers is part of the entry from the Raglan twins, which is one of dozens in the Kids' Stuff Talent Quest.
Finalists in the competition will compete to win a Nintendo Wii Console.
The year six students from Southwell School in Hamilton are also members of the Senior Girls' Choir and perform many styles of music including theatre, country and pop.
"They love Katy Perry."
"Vivi plays the guitar and writes her own songs. Her dream is to be an actress or pop star. Tindra loves acting too, but wants to be a hairdresser when she grows up," said their dad.
Entries for the Kids' Stuff Talent Quest are open till Thursday. Ten finalists will be selected and the public will be able to vote for their favourite entries from midday on Friday.
