Invercargill singer Jack Fraser is hoping for some strong Southland support to get him through to the next round of New Zealand's Got Talent.

Fraser, a real estate agent by day, performed on the show on Sunday, singing Sway, a swing number from the 1950s but resurrected more recently by Canadian crooner Michael Buble.

Judges Rachel Hunter, Ali Campbell and Jason Kerrison complimented the performance. Kerrison, a fellow Invercargill-ite, told him his take was "very slick" and he had "a real swagger".

Whether Fraser makes it to the next round and continues to have a chance at the prize pool, which includes $100,000 cash and a new car, depends on public votes.

Voting closes at noon today.

Fraser said he hoped Southland would support him.

No stranger to performing, Fraser said the experience on the show had so far been "surreal" and performing on television was vastly different to his theatre experience.

"Even though I have done a lot of stage work and musical theatre, while that definitely helps, going into that environment (television) is totally different," he said.

So far his performances had been mainly in the musical theatre genre, but he planned to change it up a bit and offer the public something new if he made it through to the next round, he said.

"I am really counting on Invercargill people and Southlanders to vote," he said.

To vote for Fraser text JACK 8981. Texts cost up to 99c.
